    Furious 7" set box-office records and raced to No. 1 with a massive, $143.6-million domestic opening.
    If early estimates hold, the film will mark the biggest debut for the Universal franchise, which has so far racked up more than $2 billion worldwide. It would also become the ninth-biggest debut in box-office history and set a record for an April weekend, surpassing the $95 million grossed by "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" last year.

    Fueled by the robust opening of "Furious 7," the overall weekend box office will total roughly $218 million, beating the record of $177.6 million set on 2010's Easter weekend. The box office is up about 31% from the same weekend last year and 6.4% year-to-date.

    The latest "Fast and Furious" installment played in 4,004 North American theaters for a per-theater average of $35,870. On IMAX, the film grossed $14 million on 365 screens in the U.S. and Canada for a very strong per-screen average of $38,000.

    Overseas, the film made $240.4 million, giving Universal its highest-grossing international weekend by a large margin (not adjusting for inflation). To date, that brings the film's global total to $384 million.
