With the humungous business of $ 1.60 billion, it has become the fifth highest worldwide grosser of all time surpassing the collections of The Avengers ($ 1.518 billion) and Furious 7 ($ 1.516 billion). The Warner Bros. and New Line comedy also opened domestically with $18.5 million for a combined weekend of $21.4 million.
