Furious 7 is apparently doing a little more than well at the box office. In fact, it continues to do phenomenally, as evidenced by the fact that the film crossed the $1 billion mark this past weekend. Additionally, this high-octane accolade also comes with another achievement since it has distinguished itself as the quickest film to have ever accomplished this feat, only having been released a bit over two weeks ago.
Furious 7 was a massive hit for Universal. Though these numbers essentially mean another sequel will be green lit, how far will the studio ride this cash cow?
While Furious 7 continues to dominate, the emotionally bittersweet component regarding the tragic passing of Paul Walker continues to define the filmís broader narrative. However, according to co-star, Vin Diesel, words from the late franchise star may be all the motivation necessary to carry on with an eighth film. (Although, the current film making a bajillion dollars also kind of helps.)
