Power of Family Strikes Again as Fast and Furious Becomes 5th Highest Grossing Franchise in History With Fast X

With the recent release of Fast X, Universal’s Fast and Furious franchise has achieved an important achievement as it grows into one of the highest-grossing films in the series. Dan Mazeau and Justin Lin, who also co-wrote the story with Zach Dean, wrote the screenplay for the recently released movie, which is directed by Louis Leterrier.

Fast X was initially supposed to be the first part of a two-part conclusion, but Vin Diesel recently made it seem like they both agreed to spread out the final chapter of the Fast Saga into a trilogy. The movie was one of the most highly anticipated movies of the summer and even though it has received mixed reactions from the audience and critics, it has still manage to hold the mantle to be a successful franchise.

Fast X’s prosperous global debut

Deadline reports that the profitable and well-liked franchise had an estimated $371.8M opening worldwide with it’s recent release, which made it the second-best global debut of the year. The third-largest global launch for the Fast and Furious franchise. If you look closely, you can see Fast X has climbed the ladder steadily in terms of popularity and box office earnings as it manage to take over the franchise movies.

In just one week after its release, Fast X, starring Vin Diesel and Jason Momoa, was able to bring in $81.9 million domestically and an additional $289.8 million internationally for a total box office revenue of $371.8 million.

According to additional reports, the most recent film’s earnings have earned an impressive $7 billion worldwide milestone for the franchise, making it at the fifth spot in popular and lucrative franchise history. For Universal, which has now earned $1 billion within the country for the quickest time in the last decade, including box office returns from its subsidiary, Focus Features, passing the $7 billion mark is probably good news.

Fast and Furious spinoffs under development

The Fast and Furious franchise appears to still be exploring its characters, as actor Vin Diesel who is populary referred as Godfather of Fast and Furious franchise recently revealed that there are several spinoffs planned for the series. Diesel plays Dom Toretto in the movie.

Hobbs & Shaw, the Fast and Furious spinoff starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, which was released in 2019 was the starting point for the spinoffs from the franchise. Unfortunately, it did not perform as well at the box office as the producers had hoped. However, since Diesel acknowledged in an interview that he had begun creating new stories much earlier, this in no way prevents him from delving deeper into the franchise’s cast of characters.

Diesel said, “I started developing the female spinoff… in 2017 with other spinoffs. The sooner I deliver the finale, the sooner I can launch all the projects. Look how many characters and great talent there is in the movie… These characters are appealing and we need to see more of them.”

Surprising cameos in Fast X delighted the audience

Recently released Fast X featured some of the most unexpected cameos, including Gal Gadot’s return as Gisele, who had ostensibly passed away in Fast & Furious. She only appeared briefly, though, when she arrives on a submarine at the end of the new film to pick up Letty played by Michelle Rodriguez and Cipher played by Charlie Theron in Antarctica.  Sung Kang’s on-screen persona, Han Lue, underwent a significant revival. Fans are particularly curious to learn what lies ahead for Gisele and Han now that they are both alive because they dated in the movies.

Due to the public feud between Johnson and Diesel, the audience was also taken aback by Dwayne Johnson’s brief appearance. Diesel expressed his delight at Johnson and Gadot’s return in an interview with Variety, saying that although Fast X is the first of a two-part saga, it’s difficult to envision the film’s conclusion.
