“F9: The Fast Saga” was one of many uncommon success tales of the pandemic-era field workplace, releasing in summer season 2021 and grossing $726 million worldwide by the top of its run. China did loads of the heavy lifting abroad, delivering an enormous $136 million opening and a $216.9 million complete. So, in relation to the worldwide complete for “Fast X,” China shall be simply as necessary to observe because the home numbers. It’s value noting, nonetheless, that studios solely obtain round 25 p.c of ticket gross sales in China, versus round 50 p.c from home theaters.
Per Deadline, “Fast X” had grossed $68.7 million abroad by way of Friday, with an estimated $37 million of that coming from the Chinese field workplace.
