"The Fate of the Furious" is coming fast out of the gate.


The eighth installment in the "Fast and the Furious" franchise, out Friday, already earned $10.4 million in Thursday night previews in over 3,300 theaters, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie is on track to make over $100 million domestically and $400 million globally over the full weekend. With the movie playing in 63 markets globally and showing on the most IMAX screens ever for a movie, there's a good chance that this latest "Furious" movie could surpass the record-breaking opening "Furious 7" had.

The 2015 hit broke the record for the biggest opening weekend in April with $147.1 million domestically, and worldwide it took in $397.7 million, leading to the movie eventually earning $1.5 billion worldwide over its theatrical run, the largest haul for any movie in the franchise. It's also the sixth highest-earning movie worldwide ever.
