‘Furious 7’ Makes Chinese Film History as Highest-Grossing Movie

“Furious 7” sped past “Transformers 4” to become the top-grossing film in Chinese history, bringing in a total of $324.3 million and dominating China’s box office for the third straight week.

“Furious 7” earned $72.7 million from April 20 to April 26 in China, reflecting steady demand in the world’s second-biggest economy as receipts began to tail off in the U.S., according to data from EntGroup Inc., a Chinese entertainment research agency. The car-heist drama has brought in $1.3 billion worldwide, making it the fifth highest-grossing movie in history.
