MovieIt looks like the ninth movie, The Fast and The Furious, will be the blockbuster of the summer. In its opening weekend in North America, the film grossed at least 58.6 million euros. That writes The Hollywood Reporter. Actors Charlize Theron (45) and Vin Diesel (53) were thrilled.
“F9: The Fast Saga” is already the ninth movie in the “The Fast and The Furious” franchise. Normally it was supposed to launch in 2020, but the premiere has been postponed due to the coronavirus. The movie finally premiered last weekend. In the cinema, because cinemas have already opened in the United States. And fans were clearly waiting for the new movie with Vin Diesel in the main roles, because during its opening weekend, the film had already made $70 million (€58.6 million) in North America. That’s the record, the Hollywood Reporter writes. That’s been a high number since December 2019, when Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker came out. Since then, this amount has not been realized – which is undoubtedly due in part to the coronavirus.
The fun of the two heroes, Vin Diesel and Charlize Theron, was not spoiled. They were asked about the news during the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project (CTAOP) event. Vin Diesel noted, “My best feeling is the idea of people going back to the cinema. It’s nice to be able to say, ‘The cinema is back.’ You can’t blame another film studio for taking the film I want to broadcast, but I take my hat off to studios like Universal who are brave enough to say, “Hey, we’re going to support movie theaters.” Charlize Theron also responded enthusiastically: “It’s fantastic. The idea that the ninth movie has already been made is very impressive, it’s the perfect movie to help us get back to the cinema.” .
The film also premiered in Mexico, England, Brazil and Argentina. With a global gross of $405 million, Fast & Furious 9 is on track to become the first film since Star Wars 2019: The Rise of Skywalker to gross over half a billion dollars.
