#TheFateOfTheFurious Wins Again

Driving into its second week of release, Fast & Furious 8 continues to lead the pack in terms of box office results in the States and across the world. The latest entry into the successful franchise has now crossed $163.5 million in the US after adding $38.68 million according to studio estimates.

While that represents a 60% drop from its opening weekend, the new film is still going great guns, and its global performance is even better. With strong showings in China and elsewhere, Fast 8 is closing in on a billion dollars worldwide after just two weekends on release. That $908.3 million is breaking records and seems set to stick around for a while.

The new movies entering the charts had much less success, which means that The Boss Baby clung like an infant to second with $12.7 million and Beauty And The Beast stayed third on $9.9 million. Only one new arrival cracked the top five, and it was the one on the least amount of screens: Disney Nature's Born In China, with the latest wildlife release earning $5.1 million. Caper comedy Going In Style rounded out the top five on $5 million.

Smurfs: The Lost Village was sixth, adding $4.85 million, and then the second of the week's new arrivals, stalker thriller Unforgettable hit seventh with an unremarkable $4.8 million. Gifted was down from sixth place to eighth on $4.5 million, ahead of The Promise, which couldn't drum up much interest and launched in ninth with $4 million. The Lost City Of Z, meanwhile, expanded its release and snuck into the top 10 on $2.1 million.

Stepping outside the top 10 for a moment, found footage thriller Phoenix Forgotten began its run with a disappointing 11th-place kick-off and $2 million, while Ben Wheatley's Free Fire opened in more limited release and took in $1 million, which is still a wider opening and more money than most of Wheatley's movies have managed in the States.
