Trailer Alert – The Last Jedi
WARNING: This trailer contains potential spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. If you’d like to go into The Last Jedi fresh, then skip this trailer and just watch the first trailer to help ease your nerves. Having said all that….THIS TRAILER FUCKS. I am beyond hyped for this. Like more excited than I was for Episode VII. That’s REALLY excited. So excited that I may try to stuff myself into an industrial sized freezer so. I can be preserved and then thawed for the premiere of this film (A la Eric Cartman waiting for the Nintendo Wii).
Does this look something you’d want to see? …What a stupid question, of course it is. The question is how many times will you see it? Me, I’m going to see it at least 3 times (regular, 3D and IMAX 3D). That should hold me over until I can watch the blu-ray extras so many times that the disc breaks in a million pieces.
It was close, but just by a hair Universal’s The Fate of the Furious topped $100 million at the domestic box office, leading the Easter weekend charge and becoming the second 2017 release to top the century mark over its three-day opening. More importantly, on top of its North American debut, the film premiered in over 60 international markets where it brought in a record $432.3 million, resulting in a record $532.5 million worldwide debut.
With an estimated $100.2 million, The Fate of the Furious secured the #1 spot at the domestic box office, delivering on industry expectations. The film scored an “A” CinemaScore from opening day audiences which were 58% male vs. 42% female. Of that audience, 50% were under the age of 25 and further demographics show the opening weekend audience was made up of 41% Caucasian moviegoers, 26% Hispanic, 19% African American and 11% Asian. This makes for the second time a film in the Fast and Furious franchise has debuted with over $100 million and there are more to come with Fast and Furious 9 planned for 2019 and a tenth installment set for a 2021 release.
Internationally is where the majority of the Fate of the Furious story will be told as it broke the international opening record, previously held by Jurassic World with $316.7 million, as it brought in a massive $432.3 million from 63 international markets. Combined with the $100.2 million domestic opening this gives the film a record $532.5 million worldwide debut, breaking the previous record of $529 million held by none other than Star Wars: The Force Awakens. With this weekend’s grosses, the Fast and Furious franchise has now amassed just shy of $4.5 billion worldwide from all eight of its feature films. – Box Office Mojo
The Rock talking to every other movie
This shouldn’t come as a surprise, because for whatever reason people LOVE the Fast & Furious franchise, but Fate of the Furious is now the highest grossing opening weekend movie of all time. It beat out Star Wars by a little more than $3 million and if you’re ever wondering why studios keep making sequel after sequel, this is why. $500 million over three days is insane, and I can only imagine how much the film is going to gross over it’s entire cinema run. Check back with us in 2019 when Fast and Furious 9 takes in more money than the United States government.
