Yesterday, box office analyst believed Furious 7 had earned $143.6M at the North American box office, but that number came in short of what it actually pulled in.
Furious 7 grossed an astounding $146.5M at the domestic box office. Easter Sunday was stronger for the action-packed flick than expected. Analysts had predicted the film would pull in $30M on Sunday but instead it raked in a cool $32.9M.
Overall, Universal has to be super-pleased as the film shattered box office records left and right and put itself among the top ten in a lot of key categories. Furious 7 had the ninth best stateside opening weekend; 4th best global opening weekend and the best ever opening for a film in the month of April.
Not bad for a film that had to deal with one of its stars dying in the middle of production.
