After another weekend, The Fate of the Furious is No. 1 yet again. Estimates for the April 28-30 weekend have come in, via Entertainment Weekly, with the eighth installment in the action-racing series bringing in $19.4 million at the US box office and a further $68.4 million from international markets.

Worldwide, the film has now passed $1.1 billion after just three weeks. It becomes Universal’s fourth highest-grossing movie in history, following Jurassic World ($1.67 billion), Furious 7 ($1.52 billion), and Minions ($1.16 billion).
