Friday Box Office Analysis
Furious 7 spends a third weekend at the top, despite falling another 56% from its second Friday, to earn $8.3 million. Already earning over a billion worldwide, it’s going to cross $300 million mid week and probably has enough left in the tank to hit $400 million here. But the domestic box office isn’t why there will probably be an eighth film.
