Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw Box Office Crosses $500M

-

With today’s grosses, Universal PicturesFast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw box office is crossing the $500 million mark at the worldwide box office propelled by an impressive start in China yesterday.

With today’s estimates, the domestic box office through Saturday will be $144.5 million and the international box office will be $408 million, easily surpassing the $500 million milestone and nearing $600 million by end of day tomorrow. Hobbs & Shaw is in release in 68 international territories, where it opened No. 1 in 52 markets.

Earlier this month, the action-thriller was No. 1 at the domestic and worldwide box office for two consecutive weekends and is now on track for a No. 1 opening in China, grossing $39.4 million yesterday, with an estimated $106 million (RMB 750M) for the weekend. For China, this marks the biggest August opening weekend of all-time and the second-biggest Hollywood opening of 2019 (behind Avengers: Endgame‘s RMB 2.2B).

With this weekend’s grosses, the international Fast & Furious franchise total surpasses $4 billion, and brings the global gross to more than $5.6 billion.

Ever since hulking lawman Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson), a loyal agent of America’s Diplomatic Security Service, and lawless outcast Shaw (Jason Statham), a former British military elite operative, first faced off in 2015’s Furious 7, the duo have swapped smack talk and body blows as they’ve tried to take each other down.

But when cyber-genetically enhanced anarchist Brixton (Idris Elba) gains control of an insidious bio-threat that could alter humanity forever — and bests a brilliant and fearless rogue MI6 agent (The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby), who just happens to be Shaw’s sister — these two sworn enemies will have to partner up to bring down the only guy who might be badder than themselves.

Hobbs & Shaw blasts open a new door in the Fast universe as it hurtles action across the globe, from Los Angeles to London and from the toxic wasteland of Chernobyl to the lush beauty of Samoa.

Directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2) from a script by longtime Fast & Furious narrative architect Chris Morgan, the film is produced by Morgan, Johnson, Statham and Hiram Garcia. The executive producers are Dany Garcia, Kelly McCormick, Steven Chasman, Ethan Smith and Ainsley Davies.
