“Hobbs & Shaw” isn’t looking like it will make “Jurassic World” numbers… at least domestically. The “Fast & Furious” spinoff is projected to see an opening in the low $60 million range, with Universal estimating a $57-60 million domestic launch. By comparison, 2017’s “The Fate of the Furious” opened to $98.7 million.
But over the last eight years, starting with “Fast Five,” the “Fast & Furious” series has taken more and more of its success from overseas. For “Fate of the Furious,” which made over $1 billion, only 18.3% of its total grosses came from domestic moviegoers.
