With the second-largest launch in the history of the Fast & Furious franchise (Hobbs & Shaw was present at the premiere weekend in 4253 cinemas in the US alone), Hobbs & Shaw received $ 60.8 million in budget 200 million, according to Box Office Mojo.
On the other hand, revenues outside the United States amount to over $ 120 million, according to Cinemablend. Fast & Furious 8 launches with the US $ 98 million in revenue. Figures from the big screen debut could put Hobbs & Shaw in 7th place at the top of the nine Fast & Furious movie franchise, according to boxofficemojo.com. The lack of enthusiasm about this spin-off may be due, notes boxofficemojo.com, the absence of the original cast of Fast & Furious films.
However, Hobbs & Shaw is ranked well on the RottenTomatoes chronicle aggregator, with a popularity rating of 90% (movie critics, however, gave it a 66% rating). Viewers who vote on CinemaScore also rank it very high, scoring the movie with “A-” (only Fast Five and Fast & Furious 6 received the highest rating, “A”).
At the top of this weekend’s receipts (August 2-4), The Lion King animation had a box office of $ 38.246 million and placed third on Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, with revenue of $ 20.025 million.
In the fight for box office supremacy, Hobbs & Shaw could stay at the top of the standings, at least until the horror launch of IT: Chapter 2 (September 6), if not overthrown by titles like Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark or The Angry Birds Movie 2.
