CLEVELAND, Ohio - We're less than two weeks away from "Furious 7," the latest film in the "Fast & Furious" franchise, and the movie is already setting the bar high for 2015.

Early industry estimates have "Furious 7" on track for a $115 million opening weekend, which would drive it past last year's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" for the biggest April opening ever. Advanced tickets sales at Fandango are already outselling "Fast & Furious 6."

According to a recent article from Deadline, a big part of "Furious 7" huge tracking numbers is its unprecedented social media buzz. The "Fast & Furious" franchise has nearly 300 million Facebook fans and close to 30 million Twitter followers.

The individual actors, especially Vin Diesel, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Ludacris and Jason Statham, are all huge on social media. Diesel alone has a social reach near the 90 million mark.

Diesel was trending on Twitter and YouTube recently for getting choked up during a recent premiere and naming his daughter Paulina after late star Paul Walker. The actor's tragic death will likely bring fans looking to celebrate his career.

Of course, "Furious 7" is just the beginning of what should be a huge year at the box office. "Avengers: Age of Ultron" (out in May) and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" (due in December) are likely to set their own box office records later this year.
