'Fifty Shades' franchise surpasses $1 billion worldwide

Universal is celebrating cracking $1 billion worldwide with its Fifty Shades franchise. 
The third and final installment in the erotic series, Fifty Shades Freed, grossed $135 million worldwide at the weekend, down a slim six per cent from the $144 million global opening of predecessor Fifty Shades Darker.
In the UK, the decline was a little steeper than that, down 19 per cent on the debut of Fifty Shades Darker a year ago. 
Fifty Shades Freed opened in the UK with £6.13 million. 
The Fifty Shades films have always performed over the Valentine's Day period.
