Global Box Office: 'Furious 7' Hits $1.15B, Including Massive $250.5M in China

The final film from the late Paul Walker is breaking records around the globe.

Furious 7 knows no bounds.

The global blockbuster grossed another $167.9 million from 67 territories at the international box office this weekend, pushing its 19-day foreign total to $858.3 million and global cume to $1.153 billion. It's now the No. 7  title of all time, not accounting for inflation.

That includes an eight-day total of $250.5 million in China, where it is breaking numerous records and is destined to become the top-grossing film in history, surpassing the $320 million earned by Paramount's Transformers: Age of Extinction last year.

For the weekend alone, it took in $93.3 million at the Chinese box office and is already the second-highest grossing American film behind Age of Extinction.

In North America, the action film topped the chart for the third consecutive weekend with $29.1 million for a domestic total of $294.4 million. And on Friday, it became the first title in Universal's 103-year history to cross $1 billion in its original run.

Among other headlines, Furious 7 opened in Japan to $6 million, the best showing of the franchise (Japan is the last country to open).

In holdover markets, Furious 7 has now earned $46.9 million in the U.K., $45.6 million in Mexico, $32.4 million in Brazil, $32.1 million in Germany, $28.6 million in Australia, $27 million in Russia, $25.3 million in France, $24.2 million in India, $23.1 million in Taiwan, $21.3 million in Korea, $20.9 million in Argentina and $19.6 million in Venezuela.

Furious 7 is Universal's top-grossing title in 29 markets, including Argentina, China and Mexico.
