By this time next week, “Furious 7” likely will have passed the $300 million mark in North America.  In 17 days, it hit the $1 billion mark globally — that happened on Friday — a record for the fastest ascent to that milestone, senior media analyst Paul Dergarabedian of Rentrak says. 
 
“Furious 7” picked up another $29 million this week, bringing its total to an estimated $294 million, according to Rentrak.
