The first Fast & Furious spinoff Hobbs & Shaw will recharge overseas tomorrow and launch a preview of the US / Canada at 7pm on Thursday, but the Dwayne Johnson-Jason Statham vehicle is not in service I did not expect to start at the highest speeds as in the last picture in the franchise, Fate of the Furious, which saw the world climb to 541.9 million USD (including China), but I'm driving off to about $ 195M WW, maybe more.
Domestic Tracking sees Hobbs & Shaw in 4,200 movie theaters in the range $ 60M- $ 65M while competitors believe that this action shot on $ 70M-plus . The markets in Southeast Asia are a good choice for the feature film directed by David Leitch. Major territories such as Britain, Brazil, Germany, Japan and Russia will debut with the rest of the world until Friday, with the exception of China, France, Italy and Korea, which will follow later. The industry is experiencing a first weekend in the range of $ 1
Given the fate of the Furious and Furious 7 (the latter a catharsis for fans of the franchise after Paul Walker's death) came to such a BO Here is the temptation to compare Hobbs & Shaw with other spinoffs, but there are simply no great examples of Movies (for example, other than superhero universes) in which at least two of the key figures are used in a stand-alone story. For the sake of argumentation, F8 opened on comparable markets and at current conditions to $ 171.5 million (this does not include China, which was ultimately the largest offshore hub in this film, followed by Brazil , the UK, Mexico and Japan). Fantastic beasts and where to find them is mentioned again and again, but that's a very different audience. The global opening of this $ 219.9 million image was -54% lower than that of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 ($ 483.2 million), and in this case Hobbs & Shaw -64 seems to be% from the worldwide launch of Fate of the Furious.
The good box office comparison here is that of Mission: Impossible – Fallout the highest in the world at $ 61.2 million and $ 156.2 million worldwide reached this Paramount Tom Cruise series. The mission: Impossible franchise goes better with the recurring characters, the late-summer date and the crazy stunt action that definitely Hobbs & Shaw has. Fallout posted a like-for-like profit of $ 95 million (noting that certain key markets were not included in the opening mix). The largest overseas homes were China, Korea and France – none of which runs on the first weekend of Hobbs & Shaw .
If we look at superhero films, maybe Suicide Squad and Deadpool are noteworthy, they opened on our calculations at 122 million USD and 132 million USD after Likes.
Now in Hobbs & Shaw and lots of jokes between Johnson and Statham, both doing well abroad, and a new villain in Idris Elba. The film should do well in Asia, and in the end you're lucky enough not to be in China this weekend as the competition on the ground has finally increased. However, it is not expected to reach F8 . Latin America can be difficult since Fast & Furious the audience appreciates the diversity of the cast of the franchise provider.
There is also a Lion lurking in the markets, and that could get stuck a spoke in the wheels of Hobbs & Shaw . However, it is one of the great action titles of the summer and offers an alternative to the over-indexed family plan in Latin America. The Lion King is expected to experience a third weekend in the US / Canada with a price of 37-40 million USD. As we reported earlier today, Lion King is Disney's fourth title this year, exceeding $ 1 billion. Until yesterday, the Jon Favreau-driven Disney reboot has a volume of up to $ 360.9 million and is expected to exceed $ 400 million before Sunday.
