It’s showtime, folks! The much-anticipated “Fast X” has landed, and it has wasted no time leaving a roaring, fiery trail at the box office. With a global debut of a staggering $318.9 million, it has positioned itself as the number two global opening of the year, just shy of its fellow Universal production, “The Super Mario Brothers movie”.
Fast X’s roaring domestic start saw it raking in a robust $67.5 million in North America. However, where the movie truly flexed its muscular charm was overseas, raking in a colossal $251.4 million in its international debut. Yes, you read it right – that’s the top international opening of 2023 so far. The power and allure of Fast X have proven to be irresistible to international audiences.
And let’s not forget the cherry on top – the film has found an enthusiastic fan base in China. Opening to an impressive $78.3 million, Fast X has managed to achieve a feat that many Hollywood films in recent memory have failed to do – resonate with Chinese audiences.
The latest installment in the franchise is led by none other than Vin Diesel, driving home the familiarity and nostalgia of the earlier chapters. But the thrill doesn’t stop there. Fresh faces including Jason Momoa, Brie Larson, and Rita Moreno have joined this high-speed spectacle, infusing new energy into the long-running franchise. When you see such an assembled cast, it’s hard not to be filled with a sense of pride for this franchise that has brought together a diverse and talented group of actors over the years.
Fast X hasn’t just burned rubber on the road; it’s also stormed past its competitors at the box office. Despite being in its third weekend, Marvel and Disney’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” had to surrender its crown. Earning $32 million domestically and $48.8 million overseas, the Marvel film’s global total stands at $659.1 million so far – a number that is not to be scoffed at but was insufficient to hold back Fast X’s unprecedented surge.
Sure, here is a table summarizing the key information:
