Fast X just out came out over the weekend, and it’s already off to an impressive start.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the newest mainline entry in the action series has earned a global total of $318.9 million at time of writing. Because it released in territories like Belgium and and France in the middle of the week on May 17, $251.4 million of the film’s take came from international audiences.
Though China ended up as the largest contributor at $78.3 million, the film had a franchise-best take at $7 million for Japan, where it’s apparently known as Wild Speed: Fire Boost.
Because of the movie’s international open, Fast X has 2023’s biggest opening (so far), and the second biggest of the year behind Super Mario Bros.’ $377 million start back in April.
Domestically, it opened to $67.5 million, which is just barely in line with the $65-75 million range analysts were predicting before release.
It continues the franchise’s gradual decline here in the west, but the film’s still doing pretty well regardless. Right now, Fast X has the third biggest behind 2018’s Fate of the Furious ($541.9 million) and 2015’s Furious 7 ($397.6 million).
