Give the people what they want, and they will come.
And so they did last night for “F9: The Fast Saga” which made $7.1 million Thursday in previews and $23 million last night. With a potential $50 million more to come tonight and Sunday, “F9” could finish its four days with $70 million plus. That far exceeds predictions of around $55mil.
“F9” is on track for the biggest weekend opening since February 2020, and certainly the biggest post-pandemic.
Elsewhere, “Cruella” continues to proceed very well, coming up on $70 million this weekend. Lemonade from lemons! But “In the Heights” is all lemons. They won’t make the $25 mil mark this weekend after 3 weeks.
