The latest numbers have come in, and the action movie The Fate of the Furious sits atop the US box office chart for a second weekend in a row, bringing in $38.7 million.
Via Entertainment Weekly, this is down substantially from last weekend’s opening haul of $100.2 million. Predecessor Furious 7 made around $147 million for its domestic first weekend and a further $73 million for its second weekend, so this is just the latest downturn for the franchise stateside.
The international story looks different, however, as The Fate of the Furious brought in $163.4 million internationally this weekend, boosting its global haul to $908.4 million after just two weeks. The movie is expected to cross $1 billion during the next week. The Fate of the Furious made $532.5 million worldwide on its first weekend, toppling Star Wars: The Force Awakens to set a new record.
Rounding out the top five this weekend were The Boss Baby ($12.8 million), Beauty and the Beast ($10 million), Born in China ($5.1 million), and Going in Style ($5 million). You can see the full estimates for the April 21-23 US weekend below.
