The ‘Fast & Furious’ spinoff — teaming Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham — easily won the weekend race but came in on the modest end of expectations domestically. Universal’s Hobbs & Shaw sped to the top of the North American box office chart with $61 million from 4,253 theaters, while opening to a far more muscular $120 million overseas for a worldwide launch of $181 million.
The big-budget spinoff, starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, is expected to be an even bigger draw overseas, where the action franchise is hugely popular.
“Hobbs & Shaw” kicked off internationally with a robust $120 million for a global start of $180 million. Though standalone vehicles aren’t always as muscular as official franchise sequels, “Hobbs & Shaw” will have to lure crowds across the globe throughout the dog days of summer to justify its sizable $200 million budget. Opening weekend crowds skewed expectedly male, with boys and men accounting for nearly 60% of tickets sold. “Hobbs & Shaw” enticed moviegoers young and old, as 50% of audiences were over the age of 25.
