The 8th installment of the Fast And Furious franchise, The Fate Of The Furious remains steady on 1st Saturday at the Indian box office.
The action flick collected around 10 crores* yesterday and now stands with the grand total of 36 crores.
The film will probably stand around 45-50 crores by the end of its opening weekend at the box office.
The film has performed better than other Hollywood film which released this year in India.
The action franchise is quite popular in India and we certainly expected a good opening today for this film. The previous part of the film, Furious 7 collected 110 crores in India, which very much justifies the expectations related to this part. It’ll be interesting to see whether this part will surpass the collections of its previous installment.
Though Furious 8 has received positive to mixed reviews, there is hardly any impact on its box office business.
Apart from the ensemble cast of Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, Jason Statham, Michelle Rodriguez, Tyrese Gibson, Chris Bridges, Nathalie Emmanuel, Kurt Russell, Scott Eastwood and Helen Mirren, Academy Award winner Charlize Theron feature as a fierce villain named Cipher, who has the technology to hack into the world’s computerized cars in this 8th installment of action franchise film.
The film has shot around different locations around the world including Mývatn, Havana, Atlanta, Cleveland and New York City.
Written by Chris Morgan and Gary Scott Thompson, The Fate of the Furious is directed by F. Gary Gray, who has previously helmed movies like Straight Outta Compton, Law Abiding Citizen and The Italian Job.
Fast and Furious 8 is produced by Neal H. Moritz, Vin Diesel and Michael Fottrell.
It is the first Hollywood movie to be dubbed in the Kannada language. The film will be released in 3D, IMAX 3D, and 4DX internationally.
