Hobbs & Shaw Races To The Top Of The Box Office

The decision to do a spinoff of the Fast & Furious franchise has paid off for Universal Pictures as the new movie Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw has raced to the top of the Box Office charts in its opening weekend.

As reported by Box Office Pro, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw managed to acquire over $60 million in its opening weekend. This is slightly lower than the main series' entries, but it opened high enough to meet expectations.

While critic reviews for the film are 67% on Rotten Tomatoes, it looks like the general audience seem to like the movie more.

The Audience Score for the film is verified as a very high 90% with the Cinemascore being an "A-". This could be good for word of mouth since there's not much other big competition for the rest of this August.

From a worldwide standpoint, the movie earned over $120 million outside of North America with a global opening weekend of $180.8 million.

The Fast franchise has always been more popular overseas and the movie will get far more money in late August once it releases over in China.

The opening of the film should also please Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson since Skyscraper did not soar to the top of the Box Office last year.

We will see the actor once again this December for the release of Jumanji: The Next Level.
