In just 17 days, Furious 7 is crossing the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office.

It’s a new record for the fastest climb to the major milestone (The Avengers, Avatar and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 crossed $1 billion in 19 days). Plus, the film is the first Universal project to make it to the $1 billion mark in its original run (1993’s Jurassic Park reached $1.044 billion after the 3D re-release in 2013).

Furious 7, directed by James Wan and starring Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Jason Statham, and Ludacris, has propelled the Fast & Furious series past $3 billion worldwide ($3.392 billion).

Furious 7 has earned an estimated $735.2 million overseas in 17 days and an estimated $273.7 million in North America after 15 days. The film could go as high as $1.3 billion to $1.4 billion by the end of its run.
