These Charts Show How Furious 7’s Second Weekend Is as Impressive as Its First

Apr 12, 2015

Furious 7 stayed parked in the box office's top spot for the second weekend in a row, adding $60.6 million in U.S. theaters for a total of $252.2 million.

The film is one of only a dozen to score more than $60 million in its domestic box office sales in the second weekend, according to Box Office Mojo. See how it stacks up against other films that smashed the box office in their second weekend:

It's no surprise that Furious 7 is the Fast & Furious film that scored the franchise's biggest second weekend at the box office after its debut weekend smashed several records. But Furious 7's second weekend is also notable for how it managed to drop by only 59%—a testament to how its ahead-of-summer release has kept it away from heavyweights like Avengers: Age of Ultron, which hits theaters on May 1.

Last, Furious 7 is on track to be Universal Pictures' biggest hit ever, with Furious 7 being the studio's biggest opening and second weekend. Many attribute the success to Universal's diverse casting and filming locations, which is linked to a strong North American turn-out among many minority groups. See how Furious 7's second weekend stacks up against other Universal films:

As for the rest of the box office, Variety reports, Home came in second place with $19 million, Get Hard took in $8.6 million and Cinderella nabbed $7.2 million.
