‘Fast and Furious 9’ raises nearly $ 70 million in opening weekend

Published

on

“Fast and Furious 9” premiered in select theaters around the world and grossed a whopping $ 68.9 million in its first two days of screening.

According to Screen Rant, the sequel directed by Justin Lin raised $ 3.4 million on its first day in South Korea, reaching the highest mark in history in the Korean market.

With premieres in Hong Kong, Russia and the Middle East, the feature racked up an additional $ 10.7 million.

All this considering that open cinemas are not operating at full capacity.

Even so, it seems hard to expect the sequel to have a final collection as large as its predecessor, which racked up US $ 1.2 billion worldwide.

The 7th highest grossing film of the entire franchise so far, with $ 1.5 billion worldwide.

Still, it’s worth clarifying that much of that success was due to the fuss over Paul Walker’s death and curiosity about how his character would be portrayed in the plot.

Recalling that the film will not be released in the US until June 25 and will hit Brazilian screens on July 22.

Brazil and the USA being two very promising markets, it remains to be seen if these debuts will inject a good quantity at the end of the race.

So, are you anxious?

Discover the first reviews of the film:

Enjoy watching:

“Those who are already steeped in the franchise’s lore will appreciate ‘Fast and Furious 9’ taking care of the supporting characters – including some whose return to the narrative is sure to elicit applause in crowded cinemas. But some of that fan service ends up looking forced. Either way, the movie makes us feel like the franchise has already lost its creativity and uniqueness. – Daily screen.

“Like in Lin’s last film, the disappointing ‘Star Trek: Without Borders’, the director takes a quantity over quality approach, has more action, more subplots, and lots of characters in the mix. More than any movie. Still, “Fast and Furious 9” leaves the feeling that something is missing. The maximalist strategy does not allow the plot to develop the relationship between Dom and his brother. – The Hollywood Reporter.

“Sometimes, when you least expect it, a successful franchise essentially turns into something different. Over time, “Mission Impossible” became similar to “007”, and “Fast and Furious” became “Mission Impossible”. But “Fast and Furious 9” is not built around an exciting mission. It is built around Vin Diesel and John Cena experiencing the angst of the Toretto brothers’ past. The family storyline “works” (although you know how poorly written Cena’s character is), but it’s not enough to sustain the film; it’s more like an excuse. The truth is, this franchise didn’t need the “excitement” anymore. – Variety.

“This is, by far, the biggest, craziest and toughest in the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise (one scene at the end is sure to open your mouths with the silly daring of some characters) , the direction of [Justin] Lin and Daniel Casey’s storyline is able to take action to ridiculously satisfying levels and all of that is offset when we dive into the character of Dom, on a more personal level than the franchise has ever achieved before. – IndieWire

“For audiences who want to hit theaters in 2021 with a big, loud and exciting show, ‘Fast and Furious 9’ gets cars moving fast, jumping high and generally doing the impossible. It’s extremely whimsical, yes, but it’s also ridiculously stimulating if you need a hobby. – The Wrap.

Watch the trailer in a dubbed and subtitled version:

Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) has always lived at full speed. After the loss of his best friend and the discovery of his son, he reduced the pace of life, alongside Letty (Michelle Rodriguez). But it is not easy to live in the present when the past is accelerating towards you. And that’s what happens when Dom meets his brother Jacob Toretto (John Cena), who is encouraged by Cypher (Charlize Theron) and Magdalene Shaw (Helen Mirren) to execute a revenge plan. It’s time for Dom to reunite Sister Mia (Jordana Brewster) and the family of loyal friends, such as Roman (Tyrese Gibson), Tej (Ludacris) and Han (Sung Kang).

Directed by Justin Lin, the film also features Finn Cole, Anna Sawai, Vinnie Bennett and Michael Rooker.
