This weekend’s box office will test how much Americans are ready to return to movie theaters. Hollywood insiders expect the latest installment of Fast & Furious franchise to earn $60 million in its debut. Anything less would be a disappointment.
F9: The Fast Saga stars Vin Diesel and John Cena, plus returning stars Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Ludacris and Tyrese Gibson. Also brief cameos from Helen Mirren, Kurt Russell and Charlize Theron.
The franchise is critic-proof. About 90-minutes is dedicated to car chases and fist fights with just 10-minutes of dialogue to explain why they’re fighting and chasing. Then 30-minutes focus on the emotional aspects of “family.” And a hilarious Cardi B appearance is the cherry on top. (The Wrap)
