Fast X has collected Rs.105 crores during its 11-day run after its release on 19 May.
Fast X has become the first Hollywood movie to earn 100 crores at the Indian box office in 2023. Universal Pictures has confirmed that the 10th major installment of the globe-trotting action franchise has collected an impressive Rs. 105 crore (approx. $1.26 million) during its 11-day run since its theatrical release on 19 May. From a global perspective, Fast X has earned $515.6 million (roughly Rs. 4,266 crore), securing its place as the third-biggest studio release. He currently stars in The Super Mario Bros. Movie and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is behind. The former of which joined the billion-dollar club in less than a month.
The new Fast & Furious movie has earned $402 million (roughly Rs. 3,327 crore) from territories outside the US and Canada, including the aforementioned $1.26 million from India. Despite the large numbers, the Deadline report notes that the figures show a 58 percent decline in 84 markets. Fast X earned another $113.5 million (roughly Rs. 939 crore) from North American territories.
Fast X is currently competing with Disney’s The Little Mermaid, which earned just $185.8 million (roughly Rs. 1,537 crore) at the global box office after its release last Friday. That said, analysts were quick to point out that the opening of the aquatic adventure did not represent the biggest opening weekend for a live-action remake. It still has The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast.
Fast X seems to be doing very well, despite the scathing reviews – even surpassing set estimates in its opening weekend. In it, Dominic Toretto (Vin Diesel) has a new formidable enemy in town — Dante Reyes (Jason Momoa), who plans to destroy the Toretto family in a quest to avenge his father’s murder. In classic F&F fashion, the film promises plenty of cars, family reconciliations and explosions, with Dante even unleashing a round bomb on the streets of the Vatican.
John Cena returns as Jakob Toretto, of course, reconciles with his siblings Dom and Mia (Jordana Brewster) in F9. Other returning cast members include Jason Statham as Deckard Shaw, Sung Kang as Han Lew, and Michelle Rodriguez as Letty. Meanwhile, Brie Larson and Daniela Melchior are new additions.
During the CinemaCon event in late April, Vin Diesel confirmed that Fast X :Part 2 is looking to release sometime in 2025. For those unfamiliar, the franchise has been designed to end with a two-part finale – however, Diesel said in an interview that the plan holds. A trilogy is not out of the question. “I can say this without giving too much away. Going into making this movie, the studio asked if it could be a two-parter,” he said. “And after the studio saw this part one, they said, ‘Can you make Fast X into a Fast X trilogy?’
