Entering its third weekend in theaters, Furious 7 has earned an estimated $735.2 million overseas and an estimated $273.7 million in North America. Early predictions reveal the film could reach as high as $1.3 billion to $1.4 billion by the end of its run. It joins the ranks of Titanic ($2,783,919,005), Avatar ($2,207,615,686) and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey ($1,014,703,584).

The film stars the late Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Jason Statham, and Ludacris, has propelled the Fast & Furious series past $3 billion worldwide ($3.392 billion).

Furious 7 is the first Universal project to make it to the $1 billion mark in its original run. It is the first film to reach $1 billion in 17 days. It took 19 days for The Avengers, Avatar and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. It is the highest-grossing domestic ($147.2 million) and international ($250 million) openings in Universal Studios’ history.

      Has it ever OCCURRED to your — COLOR/Complexion STRUCK dumbness, to most women Tyrese is way MORE ATTRACTIVE and Successful than — Chris BROWN…

      There have been comments about women not wanting to even see Chris Brown in restaurants or they will leave.

      Tyrese has way more appeal than Chris. Just look at the success of “F.F – 7 series.”
