Universal Pictures’ “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw” has been in theaters for almost six weeks, and in that time, has made over $700M worldwide. The film currently sits in fourth place in overall gross within the franchise, above “Fast Five” with $626M and below “Fast & Furious 6” with $788.6M.
The top two films within the franchise are “Furious 7” and “The Fate of the Furious,” which made $1.5B and $1.23B respectively. James Wan directed “Furious 7” and that was the last installment to feature the late Paul Walker. F. Gary Gray joined the franchise to direct “The Fate of the Furious” in 2017, and that film added Charlize Theron to the mix.
“Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw” is the first spinoff of the franchise. Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham reprised their characters, and Idris Elba joined as the main bad guy. The movie also introduced Vanessa Kirby. “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw” opened at the top of the domestic box office back in August, bringing in over $60M worldwide. While that may seem like a low opening when compared to some of the other installments, the $60M opening stands as the eighth-highest August opening of all-time. The movie bumped “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” down to ninth place overall on the August charts, where it sits with $54M.
Justin Lin is expected to direct “Fast & Furious 9,” which doesn’t have an official title at this time. Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez, Charlize Theron, Nathalie Emmanuel, Helen Mirren, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, and Ludacris are expected to star in the movie. Lucas Black is rumored to be playing Sean Boswell in the film, and Finn Cole might make an appearance, along with John Cena and Anna Sawai. If everything goes according to plan, the movie will be in theaters in May 2020.
