The Fate of the Furious breaks global box office record

The Fate of the Furious has raced to the top of the box office chart - breaking an international record in the process, BBC reports. 

The eighth film in the action thriller franchise took an estimated $532.5m (£424.7m) globally over Easter weekend.

The figure makes it the strongest worldwide debut ever - marginally overtaking the $529m (£421.8m) taken by Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

However, the film's US takings were down sharply on the previous movie.

Furious 7 took $147.2m (£117.3m) in the US when it was released in 2015 - but the latest instalment of the series opened with $100.2m (£80m).
