‘F9′ has crossed the $500 million mark worldwide, making it the first Hollywood film to do it in the pandemic era.
On Monday, the worldwide box office for F9, the ninth chapter in the Fast & Furious franchise, surpassed $500 million.
To date, the picture has grossed a total of $500.30 million worldwide. The film has grossed $125.90 million in the United States.
This week, the picture will be up against a formidable opponent in the form of Marvel Studios’ Black Widow, which will be released in theaters across the globe on July 9. According to projections, the Scarlett Johansson-led MCU picture will open to $90 million, breaking the previous record set by F9.
The action film premiered in South Korea in May and was distributed in North America on June 25. Justin Lin, who has directed four earlier films in the franchise, returns to direct this one. The script was written by Lin, Alfredo Botello, and Daniel Casey.
F9 is the highest-grossing Hollywood film of the epidemic age, both domestically and internationally, and the first to surpass $500 million worldwide since Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle in 2019. It’s also the third-highest-grossing film of 2021, behind Chinese New Year blockbusters Hi, Mom and Detective Chinatown 3.
Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, John Cena, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Sung Kang, Michael Rooker, Helen Mirren, Kurt Russell, and Charlize Theron are among the cast members.
Biggest highlight for the movie was John Cena being introduced as the Brother of Dom ‘Vin diesel’.
“F9 sends the franchise flying further over the top than ever before, but director Justin Lin’s talent for absurd set pieces keeps the action humming,” says the critical consensus.
F9 is expected to be valued in the $600 million range on the international market, which would be comparable to Hobbs & Shaw at today’s rates.
