F9 is proving to be very popular on Netflix at the moment as it’s been climbing up the charts on the streaming platform following the release of Fast X. The movie was released in 2021, and it did pretty well at the box office, which is saying something given the fact that it was released in the midst of a global pandemic.
F9 grossed $173 million in the United States and Canada, and $553.2 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $726.2 million. In the United States and Canada, F9 was projected to gross between $55–65 million from 4,179 theatres in its opening weekend.
The film made $30 million on its first day (including $7.1 million from Thursday night previews), both the best such totals of the pandemic period. It went on to debut at $70 million, which was the highest-grossing weekend since Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker ($72.4 million) in December 2019.
I have to say that these numbers are completely ‘Ludacris’ (see what I did there). People didn’t seem to care about the risks of catching Covid-19. They went to see this movie in their droves regardless of the fact that there was a global pandemic.
People are watching F9 on Netflix in their droves!
Well, it looks like Fast X is going to do just as well as, if not better than, F9 at the box office. The movie has already made $344,267,050 worldwide, which is just insane. The movie’s only just been released. The movie opened with $67,017,410 from 4,046 theatres, so it’s already doing better than the previous movie.
Anyway, getting back to F9 doing well on Netflix. The movie has been climbing up Netflix’s streaming charts very since Fast X was released in cinemas. It seems as though people are going back to the previous movie before watching the new one, and I understand that.
After having seen the new Fast And Furious movie myself at the cinema, I think I might have benefited from being reminded of what happened prior to this new movie in the never-ending car franchise.
According to FlixPatrol, the film has been in Netflix’s Top 1o most-watched movies list for the last 23 days. It’s currently sitting in sixth position. However, I wouldn’t be surprised if the film ends up going higher up that list over the next few days.
The really interesting thing about this news is that the movie is climbing up the Netflix charts without it actually being available to watch in that many territories around the globe. For instance, the film is not available to watch on Netflix in the United States.
On which streaming platforms can you watch F9?
It’s also not on the UK version of Netflix. However, it seems as though people are still finding ways to watch it. I think that a lot of people might be using a VPN to stream the movie on, say, the Croatian version of Netflix. However, the film has been doing well in the United States on Max, which is where it’s currently available to stream, even though it’s a Universal Pictures movie.
The movie’s also been doing well on Prime Video in territories such as Germany and Spain. The film is currently the third most-watch film in both of those countries. It’s also available to stream on Prime Video in Austria, India, Italy, Poland and Portugal.
If you’re to then go and look at the numbers on iTunes, you’ll find that the movie is in the number one spot in Japan, which means that people in Japan are buying the movie on iTunes over there. This is all just a testament to the incredible power of this Fast And Furious franchise.
People just cannot get enough, so it’s no wonder that the latest movie in the franchise is already blowing up the box office!
