So with ‘Fast and Furious 8’ having an enormous opening weekend making over $532m beating The Force Awakens $529m it’s on target to make another ton of cash for the franchise and should easily (and quickly) exceed $1billion.
It’s not the only film to have done that this year with Disney’s live action version of ‘Beauty and the Beast’ also in the $1billion+ club.
So for fun here’s a look at the movies that were quickest to hit a billion dollars and here’s the top ten and the time it took the film to hit the magic number.
We can expect Fast 8 to join the list pretty soon…..
