Furious 7 Box Office Results

Furious 7 is making money at an extremely fast rate. As of right now, Furious 7 has raced off to $183.7 million in the U.S. box office. This seventh installment is predicted to perform well in its second weekend. We expect Furious 7 to outpace the entire Fast and Furious 6 run in less than two weeks.

According to, Furious 7 is predicted to capture $61 million in its second weekend and amass $255 million in total ticket sales in 2 weeks. Wow!

Universal Studios invested big and got huge returns. Their bread and butter in Fast and Furious movies give them access to a fan base who will turn Furious 7 into a $1 billion dollar international success. Worldwide, movie fans love these racing/heist movies. They've watched Vin Diesel and Paul Walker compete on the silver screen for 14 years. Loyalty never fails to deliver.

Furious 7 is the last Fast and Furious movie for the late Paul Walker. This film is the first to bring the timeline up to present and move the storyline past Tokyo Drift.

Watch Furious 7 this weekend at the box office.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson meal planning

The Rock plays Luke Hobbs in Furious 7. He joined Fast and Furious movies in Fast Five. This ex-WWE wrestler known as The Rock, turned into a superstar actor the moment he joined the Fast and Furious movie franchise in Fast Five. Dwayne is on the cusp of greatness, contributing his acting talents in the recent blockbuster Furious 7 movie and is about to star in disaster flick, San Andreas this summer.

Nevertheless, Dwayne is having a career year, such as what we've seen with Kevin Hart, Channing Tatum and other up-and-coming performers. The Rock shared his daily meal planning, which consists of a whole lot of Cod fish. Seven meals per day equal 4,100 in calories. This includes a daily workout regime as intense as professional bodybuilders, helping to maintain his strong physique.

Dwayne is the real deal. He reached the top of the mountain as a wrestler. He is making big strides in Hollywood. What is next for Dwayne Johnson? There are no limits to his growth, as shown in his physical strength and character likeability. This charismatic actor is ready to accept the next challenge.

In the meantime, check out The Rock's daily meal preparation and intake. No wonder Dwayne is able to keep in prime shape. Read here to view his meal planning.

Digital Paul Walker in unfinished scenes?

On a Screen Crush website, there are reports of CGI in the later Paul Walker scenes. CGI is favored to crop Paul's face on his brother Cody's face. Given this effort, we get to watch Paul Walker appear as real in missing scenes he couldn't shoot after his death in 2013.

Screen Crush breaks down Paul Walker scenes which are enhanced through CGI. It is a visual trick that was employed in mega blockbuster Gladiator to wrap up scenes following the death of Oliver Reed while portraying Proximo. 

We expect widespread discussions on Paul Walker CGI scenes. This approach is perhaps the best solution to say goodbye to Paul Walker in a positive way without killing off his character in a crash scene. 

Paul Walker is a sensitive topic in Fast and Furious movies. Therefore, we want to honor one of the main actors who put The Fast and the Furious on the map. Furious 7 is firing up its engines, awaiting a huge opening weekend beginning on Thursday night showings. The race is on April 3, 2015. 

Thank you Paul Walker for making Fast and Furious movies so awesome. We appreciate the contribution of Paul Walker's family to help wrap up this seventh film. Paul is smiling down on his FF cast, friends, family and fans.

Vin Diesel names his daughter after his late pal Paul Walker

Vin Diesel naming his daughter after his best buddy Paul Walker squashes any debate on the rumored feud between the two Fast and Furious stars. Paul Walker appeared as a good guy to many. His good American looks made him a top pick on most female lists of the hottest men in the world. There's no question Paul Walker attracted countless female fans to his past movies.

Vin named his daughter Pauline, a really nice girl name that resembles Paul. He admits that Paul's presence inspired him to name his daughter Pauline. It is a bond these two friends will share forever.

Paul Walker was a genuine person who never made magazine covers for his antics. He represented the face of Fast and Furious movies, which Vin Diesel later returned to in Fast & Furious to re-energize this beloved racing movie franchise. His cameo appearance in Tokyo Drift set-up the plot twist that is finally connecting us fans to present time.

As we know, Han is gone. Jason Statham is playing the brother of Owen Shaw, who is on a revenge mission to avenge his brother's death. James Wan, horror movie director, with Saw, Insidious, The Conjuring and Insidious Chapter 2 to his name, is sure to make Furious 7 an awesome experience.

In the meantime, we can show respect for Vin Diesel naming his daughter after his best friend and honoring his memory forever. What an admirable act on Vin Diesel's part.

Furious 7 is set to release in movie theaters next weekend. It will become a certified blockbuster on Sunday, where this movie will likely pass the $100 million mark domestically. There is more to come, so watch the race next week.

Well done Vin! You are a great person. Paul Walker is proud of you.

1 weeks away! Furious 7 opens next weekend

Furious 7 is on tap for next weekend. This seventh installment to the highly anticipated street racing movie franchise represents Paul Walker's last stand ever. Unfortunately, Paul Walker passed away in a fiery car accident in Valencia, California in 2013. This tragedy stalled out Furious 7 until the studio, director James Wan, and the rest of the FF team could figure out the right path to take with Furious 7.

Based on the recent movie trailers, Furious 7 is ready to make a huge splash next weekend. When we say huge, we are talking about massive box office ticket sales. This Furious 7 movie will make big money in its first 3-days in release. Midnight showings will start the race off, carrying forward well into the weekend box office.

Major actors are starring in Furious 7. Kirk Russell and Jason Statham joined the Fast and Furious movie franchise. We suspect Lucas Black will reappear in Furious 7, adding another dimension to this complex plot line established in The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.

See yall next weekend. Furious 7 opens on April 4, 2015.
