Furious 7 Top-grossing Film Of All time At $1.153B In 19 Days

Furious 7 is now Universal’s top-grossing film of all time at $1.153B after 19 days in release. While it’s the studio’s first first-run pic to cross $1B, it’s worth mentioning that Jurassic Park also hit the milestone worldwide, topping out at $1.03B including the re-release and 3D upgrade in 2013. The rest of the marketplace this frame was largely loaded with holdovers and expansions including Home, Cinderella and Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 while some local pics made hay, notably Fox’s Dragonball Z: Resurrection F which scored the biggest opening in Japan of 2015.
Overall, the weekend across the Top 10 studio releases was down just 12.4% internationally and at par with the same frame last year. That 2014 session included Rio 2’s $47.1M; 14 initial markets for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 which caught $47M in its web; and Captain America: The Winter Soldier’s $35.3M.

Next week, many offshore territories are making way for Avengers: Age Of Ultron which begins flexing superhero muscle on April 22 in such key markets as France, Italy, Brazil, Germany, the UK, Russia and Korea ahead of its Stateside bow on May 1. The international rollout is pretty similar to most late-April/early-May Marvel patterns. About 55% of the overseas footprint will be covered before Ultron heads to North America with another 10% offshore. China, which was The Avengers‘ top play in 2012, opens May 12 and Japan is on July 4. The Avengers topped out at $1.52B worldwide and Ultron looks set for global domination in the next few weeks.
