In the recent week, The Fate of the Furious came out as the next chapter in the Fast of the Furious saga. In the first week of it being in theaters, Fate of the Furious grossed a box office of $600 million which is the highest record of box office sales on a movie, passing Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Star Wars Fans are in an uproar because a movie about cars and explosions beat out a movie about a “galaxy far far away.”

People expect this will change when the next Star Wars movie comes out in December, but only time will tell, until then Fate of the Furious holds the record.

“It’s not surprising” said Dan Oliver, a computer science major. “It’s Fast and the Furious.”

“Personally, I like Star Wars better” said Rich Nelsen, a mechanical engineering major. “I don’t see how Fate of the Furious could have broken the record, but I bet the new Star Wars will take back the record.”

Star Wars fans have nothing to worry about with The Last Jedi coming out this winter, and like Rich said, it could break the record that The Fate of the Furious has set.

“Well I’m very surprised,” said Joey Howerton, an English major. “I’ve never seen any of the films, but I knew that the fast franchise had a loyal fan base, and were more than your typical ‘dumb action movies’ with some heart to them, but to dethrone the juggernaut that is Star Wars. Not a run of the mill animated movie or cheesy romantic comedy, Star Wars! I hope it’s good at least.”

Until next time, this is Nathan signing out.
