“Hobbs and Shaw” Go Fast and Furious at Box Office

There’s little surprise in such a steadfast franchise as Fast & Furious that the saga’s first spin-off movie would be a hit, especially with two top-talent action stars in the lead. “Hobbs and Shaw,” starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham from their previous roles in “Furious 7” and “Fate of the Furious,” ranked in at #1 for the weekend box office with a $60 million domestic gross. The film still has a ways to go to make for its high $200 million budget but chances are it’ll be strong enough to meet that challenge, considering the worldwide gross is already sitting high at $180 million.

The rest of the box office results were pretty much expected drops for the staying power of many movies being box office gold. “The Lion King” is still riding tall with a domestic gross of $430 million. “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is hanging in there after the big buzz of audience and critics, with its domestic total now at $78 million, well on its way to clearing its $90 million budget. “Spider-Man: Far From Home” continues to show its staying power after five weeks with its domestic total now at $360 million. But that’s nothing compared to the staying power of “Toy Story 4,” Pixar’s stellar sequel that has remained in the top 10 for 7 weeks, leading to a domestic gross now at $410 million.
