Dwayne Johnson, Vin Diesel end feud

Posted April 20, 2017

In the meantime, they'll take their time before getting started with the ninth film, which is the key reason why they aren't going to shoot the next two movies back-to-back. It stars Vin Diesel who plays Dom, Dwayne Johnson who plays Hobbs, and Jason Statham who plays Deckard.

Fortune also reported that The Fate of the Furious' global record opening is better than the domestic numbers, revealing that worldwide movie market has a significant impact most especially to countries like China. The Fate Of The Furious now stands with a collection of 52.50 crores at the India box office. Fast and Furious 9 is now racing toward an April 19, 2019 release date, while Fast and Furious 10 will trail it shortly afterward with an April 2, 2021 release. Star Wars doesn't have the same cachet in China that it has in Western markets.

The collections have been lower compared to the franchise's previous film.

With $100.2 million made in the United States alone its opening weekend, The Fate of the Furious didn't quite beat the domestic numbers of Furious 7 ($147 million) but globally, the numbers have been astounding.

Fate of the Furious is marked by success based on this weekend's turnout in the box office.

"Beauty and the Beast" continued to draw viewers to North American theaters this weekend, earning $13.6 million in its fifth week. Its nearest rival, The Boss Baby, landed $15.5m (£12.4m) to secure second place. In fact, it seems their fall-out was little more than a battle of egos according to a new report.

Though The Fast and the Furious film franchise doesn't really stand well in terms of critical reviews, the series of high-speed racing action films have always done relatively well at the box office with each installment raking in hundreds of millions worldwide. Walker died in an auto crash during the production of "Furious 7".

More chapters in the Furious franchise, which began in 2001, are planned for release in 2019 and 2021. "I think some things may be blown out of proportion", he told USA Today.
