Box Office: ‘F9’ Speeding to Pandemic-Era Record With Estimated $68 Million Debut

The ninth installment in the “Fast and Furious” franchise is on its way to breaking a pandemic-era domestic box office record with an estimated $68 million debut.

The action film, starring Vin Diesel and John Cena, raked in $30 million on Friday alone from 4,179 theaters. If its sales to continue to progress at a similar rate over the weekend, “F9” is set to smash the pandemic-era box office record currently held by “A Quiet Place Part II,” which debuted to $48.3 million.

The prediction bodes well for the return of moviegoing, as “F9” has opened in the highest number of theaters since the start of the pandemic, and is expected to be the highest-grossing box office debut since December 2019’s “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.”
