Fast and Furious Box Office : Hobbs & Shaw, Continues to Dominate Box Office!

August 05, 2019

Fast & Furious Presents Hobbs & Shaw, a spin-off of The Fast and the Furious franchise, released in India on 2 August. The film had a remarkable opening at the Indian box office, becoming the second-highest Hollywood opener in 2019, after Avengers: Endgame.

Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw ruled the worldwide box office this weekend with an estimated haul of $180.8 million (about Rs. 1,273 crores), the third-largest opening in the franchise, though it's a fair way off the first two — Furious 7 ($397.7 million) and Fast and Furious 8 ($541.9 million) — which are also its direct predecessors. That's partly because only none of the old crew make an appearance in Hobbs and Shaw, which focuses on the title characters played by Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, respectively. Moreover, Fast and Furious 8 had the advantage of releasing in China — a big market for the franchise — on the opening weekend, which helped it have the third biggest opening of all time behind Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame.

According to the latest report, the film which opened to Rs 11 crore saw a marginal growth as it collected another Rs 11.75 crore on its first Saturday, taking its overall total to a stupendous figure of Rs 42.90 crore in just three days. The release of 'Fast & Furious: Hobbs & Shaw' also impacted the collections of Sonakshi Sinha's film 'Khandaani Shafakhana' which failed at the box-office.

Meanwhile, Disney's other recent release Toy Story 4 continued its pursuit of a billion dollars by earning $17.35 million (about Rs. 122 crores) globally over the weekend. It now stands at $959 million (about Rs. 6,751 crores).

And lastly, Sony Pictures' Spider-Man: Far From Home brought in $17.25 million (about Rs. 121 crores) at the worldwide box office, pushing its total to $1.08 billion (about Rs. 7,602 crores).

The David Leitch directorial which also features Idris Elba, Vanessa Kirby and Helen Mirren is the ninth instalment and a spin-off to 'The Fast and the Furious' franchise. The franchise is among the top-ranking Hollywood franchises in India along with 'Avengers', 'SpiderMan' and 'Mission Impossible'. Apart from Hindi and English, the film has also released in Tamil and Telugu languages in nearly 2,100 screens across India.
