The sixth time was definitely the charm for the "Fast & Furious" franchise. 
"Fast & Furious 6" has made history at Universal Studios, earning a whopping $500 million worldwide faster than any film in the history of the studio, reports The Hollywood Reporter. 
The movie has been in the top spot at the U.S. box office for the past two consecutive weeks. 
Directed by Justin Lin -- his fourth film in the franchise -- the movie debuted in the No. 1 spot in all of the 60 territories it has opened in. 
Starring Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez, the film has grossed a total of $180.3 million domestically and $342.2 million worldwide.
In a recent interview with Screen Rant, Johnson spoke about the possibility of a spin-off focused around his "Fast and Furious" character Luke Hobbs. 
"That’s always an ongoing conversation, because it’s really such a cool character. Cool and it’s fun in that franchise, to introduce him," Johnson said. "That’s a great thing about working with Neal [Moritz], too, who hustles to get his movies done and has a studio like Universal who ushered me into the business ten years ago. So there’s a relationship there."
Universal has already confirmed that a seventh installment of the movie has been set for a July 2014 release date. James Wan will replace Lin as director of the film.
