Box Office Top 20: 'Fast 8' snags global debut record

By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) — "The Fate of the Furious," the eighth movie in the "Fast and the Furious" series may have fallen short of $100 million in North American theaters, collecting $98.8 million, but it still solidified its spot as the biggest global opener of all time with $532 million worldwide.

The previous record-holder, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" launched with $529 globally in 2015.

Domestically, "Fast 8" is the second-highest opener of the series, behind 2015's "Furious 7," which opened to $147.2 million — a number many attributed to increased interest in the film following the death of star Paul Walker before the film was finished.

Holdovers populated the rest of the top five at the box office, with "The Boss Baby" in second with $16 million and "Beauty and the Beast" in third place with $13.7 million.
