'Hobbs & Shaw' is No. 1 at the box office, but trails 'Fast & Furious' pace

  • August 04, 2019

NEW YORK — The first spinoff of the 18-year-old “Fast Furious” franchise, “Hobbs and Shaw,” has pocketed $60.8 million in its North American debut and another $120 million internationally.

That’s the smallest domestic opening for a “Fast Furious” film since 2006’s “The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift.” But the $200 million Universal Pictures release is aiming to do its largest damage abroad. It opens in China, where “Fast Furious” films have excelled, on Aug. 23.

“The Lion King” slid to second in its third weekend with $38.2 million. The Disney remake earlier this week crossed $1 billion worldwide.

In third is Quentin Tarantino’s 1969 fable “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” which held strong with $20 million in its second weekend.
