‘F9’ Speeding to Record

by DailyBriefers

F9,” the ninth installment in the “Fast and Furious” franchise, is on its way to breaking a pandemic-era domestic box office record with an estimated $68 million debut.

The action film, starring Vin Diesel and Michelle Rodriguez, raked in $30 million on Friday alone from 4,179 theaters. If its sales to continue to progress at a similar rate over the weekend, “F9” is set to smash the pandemic-era box office record currently held by “A Quiet Place Part II,” which debuted to $48.3 million.

The prediction bodes well for the return of moviegoing, as “F9” has opened in the highest number of theaters since the start of the pandemic. It’s also expected to be the highest-grossing box office debut since December 2019’s “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.”

Along with Diesel and Rodriguez, “F9” also stars Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jordana Brewster and Sung Kang. Helen Mirren also makes an appearance as Deckard and Owen Shaw’s mother. Justin Lin, who has helmed several films for the “Fast and Furious” franchise, is the director.

In other box office news, Paramount’s “A Quiet Place Part II” has kept a steady hold on the No. 2 spot, earning $1.8 million on Friday from 3,124 locations. The thriller is expected to gross a total of $5.9 million this weekend, bringing its cume up to an impressive $135 million. Though “F9” kicked off with a speedy start, “A Quiet Place Part II” is currently the highest-earning film of the pandemic era in the U.S.

“The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard” came in third place on box office charts and is estimated to earn another $4.56 million this weekend, which would bring its total to $25.5 million. Sony’s “Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway” is predicted to hop up to No. 4 this weekend, with a 3-day estimate of $4.52 million, pushing its gross to $28.5 million. Coming in the fifth spot is Disney’s “Cruella,” with the villain backstory starring Emma Stone expected to pull in a further $3.5 million for a grand total of $71 million.

First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.

I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.
I’ve had a tough time clearing my mind in getting
my thoughts out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems
like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to figure out how to
begin. Any suggestions or hints? Many thanks!
