In its first weekend at the domestic box office, F9 has earned over $70 million USD and has set a new North American record during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As reported by THR, F9 had the biggest domestic opening since Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker earned $177 million in 2019.
Globally, F9 has earned over $400 million USD and, while it surpassed the $60 million domestic launch of Hobbs & Shaw, it didn’t quite reach the $98.8 million opening of 2017’s The Fate of the Furious.
Last week, the Fast and the Furious Saga became the fifth-biggest film franchise globally with $6.2 billion earned globally, overtaking the X-Men series.
In our F9 review, we said that it “proudly pitches audiences into the shotgun seat on one more absolutely wild ride packed with thrills, laughs, and—in the end—a heartwarming message about family.”
