F9 Conquers Box Office With Biggest US Opening Weekend Since 2019
The latest Fast & Furious made a massive $70 million in its first three days on release in the US.
F9, the latest movie in the Fast & Furious series, has scored the biggest opening weekend at the US box office since the end of 2019. The movie made $70 million in its first three days on release.
Not only is this by far biggest domestic opening weekend of the pandemic era, it's the highest since Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was released in December 2019. As Box Office Mojo notes, F9 managed to exceed the $60 million opening weekend of the previous film in the series--2018's spin-off Hobbs and Shaw--with only 80% of the country's theaters open. The previous highest opening weekend gross of the last 18 months was A Quiet Place: Part II in May, which made $47.5 million.
F9 opened in some international territories last month and has so far $404.8 million worldwide. The movie was originally set for release in May 2020--at the time, it was one of the first movies to be shifted back an entire year to 2021, as opposed to just being moved forward a few months.
Elsewhere in the box office chart, A Quiet Place: Part II remained at No.2, adding another $6.2 million to its $136 million US gross. Worldwide, it has $248.4 million to date. Last week's No.1, the action sequel The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard, dropped to No.3, with Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway at No.4 and Cruella at No.5.
