The continuation part to the popular fast and furious movie “Hobbs & Shaw” just broke another box office record with over $60 million Dollars on first week of his release.
Variety reports that the Fast & Furious spinoff movie has once again finished on top of the box office, garnering an insane $25.4 million during its second weekend. In terms of regional success, the movie has now earned a total of $108 million in North America and $224 million overseas. Though original predictions held that the movie would gross roughly between $60 and $65 million, it’s now surpassed the likes of The Lion King, as well as the Quentin Tarantino-directed, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
As reported by Forbes, the film brought in a total of $11.6 million on its third weekend of release – making its domestic total $100 million. Earning a total of $40.3 million during its debut, the film made history for Tarantino as his biggest opening to date. More importantly however, according to Complex, this news “arrives at a time when original films without ties to a pre-existing property struggle to make a mark at the box office.”
