Fate of the Furious Inches Closer to the 2017 Box Office Crown


What started with Beauty and the Beast’s release last month could potentially turn in to a billion-dollar earning film released every month in 2017 through the end of summer. For April, that film has quickly become Fate of the Furious after two weekends as it tops $900 million worldwide gross. Next month, it’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. In June, it’s Wonder Woman. This year could turn out to be a box office junkie’s sweetest dream.

According to Box Office Mojo, Fate of the Furious and its monster record-breaking opening weekend slowed down a bit. The box office tracking website has Fate falling behind the 10-day total of Fast & Furious 6, which means the film has pumped the brakes a little too quickly. Beauty and the Beast, on the other hand, managed to make push itself passed the $1.1 billion mark showing that the film has had some really nice legs since its March 17th release. Please forgive the Gaston-esque remark.
