Universal Pictures’ The Fate of the Furious enjoys a third weekend at No. 1 with $19.4 million domestically while it crossed the $1 billion mark at the global box currently. The eighth episode in the Fast and Furious franchise also becomes the highest-grossing imported film in China with $361 million.

Pantelion Films’ How to be a Latin Lover with a super-impressive $12 million and Great India Films’ Baahubali 2: The Conclusion with estimated $10.1 million debut ahead of STXfilms and EuroCorp’s The Circle, which debuted with just $9.3 million from 3,163 theaters.

The comedy led by Mexican star Eugenio Derbez, which cost about $10 million to make, drew an audience that was 89 percent Hispanic. Salma Hayek, Rob Lowe and Kristen Bell also star.

The South Indian epic starring Prabhas, Rana Daggubati, and Anushka Shetty, played on just 420 screens and set the record for the biggest opening weekend achieved by a Bollywood film.
