Fast & Furious fifth biggest grossing movie of all time

The Rock in Fast & Furious 7

Fast and Furious 7 has already become the fifth highest grossing movie of all time, having overtaken the Disney blockbuster, Frozen.

The movie has now grossed over $1.32bn worldwide, just behind the Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallow - Part 2. It has also joined Avatar and Titanic to become the third film ever to make more than $1bn internationally.

Furious 7's release follows the death of the franchise's star Paul Walker, who died in a car accident in 2013. The actor appears in the film as Brian O'Conner, whose character is retired at the end of the movie.

Competition at the US box office last week came from Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2, grossing $15.5m, and new entry The Age of Adaline, which made $13.3m. In comparison, Furious 7 made $18.2m to take the top spot.

Following on from the success of Furious 7, Vin Diesel confirmed a sequel was in the works, with a release date set for 14 April, 2017.
