As if Fast and Furious couldn't continue to compete with MCU and Star Wars even more. 8-)

It's not.

The last few movies has hit a billion so yes has been.

Hobbs and Show didn't do as well since that was a spin-off.

9 and 10 are guaranteed to hit a billion for sure.

That doesn't really mean they're "competing" with MCU and Star Wars. You're totally biased. Both of those franchises have way more mass appeal and fans than F&F.

The main draw of the F&F movies is the cars. This one deviated from that formula by turning it into an action movie where drag racing isn't the focal point like in the previous films. So yes it was never going to match what the traditional F&F movie would gross.

I'm actually shocked that it brought in over $700M worldwide. More than 3.5X its budget. I was thinking $500M tops.
