Los Angeles — The Fate of the Furious has sped into first place at the box office again.

Studio estimates Sunday say the eighth installment in the Fast and the Furious franchise earned $38.7m over the weekend. The new competition didn't stand a chance against the high-octane film, which had the biggest global debut of all time last weekend.

Disney's animal documentary Born in China earned $5.1m to open in fourth place, behind holdovers The Boss Baby, with $12.8m, and Beauty and the Beast, with $10m.

Two other new movies fared worse.

Warner Bros.' thriller Unforgettable, starring Katherine Heigl and Rosario Dawson, opened at No. 7 with a $4.8m.

The Armenian genocide drama The Promise, with Oscar Isaac and Christian Bale, took ninth place with $4.1m.
