The Fast and Furious spin-off film, Hobbs and Shaw, has been much appreciated by audience across the globe, and reportedly, it has crossed the benchmark set by Avengers: Endgame, in the past weekend.
Luke Hobbs, played by Dwayne Johnson, took to Instagram to thank the audience and shared a video in which he said, “…This past weekend, you made Hobbs and Shaw the number one movie in the world for four weekends in a row…the previous record held by our favorite superheroes: Avengers, Spider-Man, Captain Marvel. They held it for three weekends in a row, and we have now set a new record.”
As per the scenes depicted in the post-credits, there are chances that Hobbs and Shaw will have a sequel as well.
According to sources, the movie has already made 680 million dollars, and the earnings continue. The entire budget of the film was 200 million dollars, and it has reaped more than three times the cost. Avengers: Endgame made a total of $2.79 billion at the end of its theatrical run.
Though Avengers: Endgame is still the highest-grossing movie ever made, it no longer holds the distinction of being the longest feature film to keep the number one spot at the box office in 2019. That distinction now belongs to Hobbs and Shaw.
Before Avengers: Endgame, the record was previously held by Spider-Man: Far from Home and Captain Marvel.
This achievement has clearly geared up ‘The Rock’ aka Dwayne Johnson for more such projects.
Executive producer, Hiram Garcia has indicated a possibility of many more spin-offs of the Fast and Furious franchise and has also said that each character has much more dimensions to portray.
In conclusion, Johnson has added in his video, “I always believe records are meant to be broken so I’m glad Hobbs and Shaw broke one. There are still amazing movies coming out this year. Can’t wait for the competition to kick me off the mountain.”
