Vin Diesel’s Fast and Furious 9 is becoming one of the most successful movies at the domestic box office during the COVID-19 pandemic to date.
Fast and Furious 9 has been out overseas for a little while now, but the sequel just hit theaters domestically last weekend. Fast and Furious 9 was one of the first films to move out of 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic first hit, with the Vin Diesel-led film ultimately ending up in summer 2021.
To no one’s surprise, Fast and Furious 9 is a hit in the age of COVID now that it has arrived, with Deadline reporting that film has grossed $100 million domestically in eight days, which tops A Quiet Place Part II‘s previous 15-day record to the figure. Vin Diesel’s F9 already scored a pandemic-best with a $70 million opening last weekend and is poised to top the box office again with $30.4 million over the holiday. To date, the film has earned over $423 million worldwide.

Here is the official synopsis for Vin Diesel’s Fast and Furious 9.
Vin Diesel’s Dom Toretto is leading a quiet life off the grid with Letty and his son, little Brian, but they know that danger always lurks just over their peaceful horizon. This time, that threat will force Dom to confront the sins of his past if he’s going to save those he loves most. His crew joins together to stop a world-shattering plot led by the most skilled assassin and high-performance driver they’ve ever encountered: a man who also happens to be Dom’s forsaken brother, Jakob (John Cena, next year’s The Suicide Squad).
F9 sees the return of Justin Lin as director, who helmed the third, fourth, fifth and sixth chapters of the series when it transformed into a global blockbuster. The action hurtles around the globe—from London to Tokyo, from Central America to Edinburgh, and from a secret bunker in Azerbaijan to the teeming streets of Tblisi. Along the way, old friends will be resurrected, old foes will return, history will be rewritten, and the true meaning of family will be tested like never before.
Directed Justin Lin from a script written by Daniel Casey, F9 stars Vin Diesel, John Cena, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Jordana Brewster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Cardi B and Sung Kang, with Helen Mirren and Charlize Theron.
