“Fast & Furious 7” was without doubt an incredibly successful release, both commercially and critically, and so far the film has been getting nothing but praise. There are already talks about a sequel, and it’s clear that the franchise is going to keep running for a while, but for the time being, let’s have a look at the current installment. The latest entry into the line of films has been performing very well in the box office, and it’s just broken the $1.5 billion mark recently.
It’s the fourth film to ever go that far in the box office, and the last report indicated that its profits had reached $1.506 billion, projected to go over the $1.518 billion mark set by the first “Avengers” soon, and it’s likely going to become the third biggest film release of all time. Of course, there are plenty of contenders for this title, and it will be a difficult challenge for the film to climb up even higher, but we’re curious to see how it will perform over the next few months.
Initial reports of the film’s performance were very positive as well, as it quickly managed to score some impressive profits and rose in the charts much faster than most other releases of recent times. Even though there were some issues with its production and the film didn’t come out exactly like it was planned, it still managed to capture the hearts of fans and critics alike, and got all the great recognition that it deserved.
Many fans agree that it’s a shame Paul Walker isn’t around to see the finished result, but he would have definitely been proud of the work his crew did, and his legacy will surely live on for a long time. If not forever – at this point, “Fast & Furious” is shaping up to become one of the most iconic film franchises of all time, so we wouldn’t be surprised if the films keep getting mentioned in the future, a long time after the franchise is over.
Meanwhile, there have been various talks about the sequel that’s currently in production, but it’s far too early to say anything specific about that. We have been getting plenty of rumors concerning the actors that are going to take part in the new production, as well various details about its writing and overall production style, but it’s next to impossible to confirm any of those rumors right now, and even if some of them are true, these details are probably subject to change in such an early stage of the film’s production.
