“Fate Of The Furious” Wins Weekend Box Office Race
The Fate Of The Furious cruised to an easy box office win in its opening weekend. Get the details, and check out the full Top 10 list below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, Fate Of The Furious is the eighth installment in The Fast And The Furious franchise. The highly-anticipated new movie sees Vin Diesel’s Dom betraying his family and teaming up with a new villain played by Charlize Theron. As expected, the film sped to the top of the box office rankings. Fate won the weekend race with $100.1 million. That’s the third-highest April debut ever, following 2015’s Furious 7, which was the last edition with the late Paul Walker, who died during filming, and behind last year’s The Jungle Book.
Perhaps needless to say, but with a haul that large, Fate did some furious laps around the competition. Two-time charter topper Boss Baby gave up its throne and settled for second place. This time around, the animated film brought in $15.5 million. Beauty And The Beast, which set an opening record for March last month, added $13.6 million to its total for third place.
In the number four spot was Smurfs: The Lost Village, which racked up ticket sales of $6.5 million. Close behind was the Zach Braff-directed Going In Style. The comedy had receipts worth $6.4 million to land in the fifth position. Gifted, starring Chris Evans and Octavia Spencer, followed in sixth with $3. million.
Get Out nabbed seventh with $2.9 million. Rounding out the Top 10 were Power Rangers ($2.9 million), The Case For Christ ($2.7 million), and Kong: Skull Island ($2.7 million).
