April 14 Weekend Roundup: 'The Fate of the Furious' Smashes Worldwide Opening Records
The Fate of the Furious showed no signs of slowing down as it blitzed through the cinemas around the globe to break the international box office record for highest opening at $532.5M. Domestically, the film underperformed many industry expectations at slightly under $100M, reasonably well within our forecast.
The below chart shows our forecasts (lower bound, mean, upper bound) from last Friday next to several other industry forecasts and actual performance.
|The Fate of the Furious||$98.8M||($104M, $109M, $114M)||$118M||$115M||$116M|
We’ll be back later this week with forecasts for Free Fire, Unforgettable, The Promise, and Born in China.
