Though the film has been out for over a month, it is still gaining a modest amount at the box office.

Fate of the Furious has managed to rake in $222.5 million USD in North America and $387.4 million USD dollars in China alone, taking it to an earnings of $1.223 billion USD dollars thus far; the 11 best total of all-time. Fate of the Furious joins five other movies to have earned at least $1 billion USD at the international box office such as Avatar ($2 billion US); Titanic ($1.5 billion USD); Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($1.13 billion USD); Jurassic World ($1.02 billion USD) and the previous Furious 7 with $1.17 billion USD.
