China Box Office: ‘The Fate of the Furious’ Races Into Record Books With $190M Opening

The Fate of the Furious has sped away with China’s biggest three-day opening-weekend ever.

The Universal film earned an astonishing $190 million from Friday to Sunday, according to early local estimates, proving that the Vin Diesel-starring action franchise remains a singular phenomenon in the world’s most populous nation.

Thanks in large measure to China, Fate of the Furious opened to a record-breaking $432.2 million internationally and $532.2 million globally, eclipsing the $529 million debut of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
