Fate of the Furious Crosses $900M Globally; Unforgettable and The Promise Bomb

Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson starrer The Fate Of The Furious has managed to remain steady in its 2nd weekend at the box office.

Not only will a spin-off occur with Johnson and Statham, two more "Fast and Furious" films are confirmed for the future.

The cast of "The Fate of the Furious" is now enjoying the success of the film which earned $685 million worldwide on its second week. My answer was to phase Dom out entirely, but it appears Universal may be going a different direction by just giving Hobbs and Dom their own franchise. In The Fate of the Furious, Shaw was reluctantly recruited to help save Dom from the clutches of the series' new villain, Cipher, a sinister hacker played by Charlize Theron.

The Fate of the Furious is opening in 4,311 theaters nationwide, making it the widest opening for a non-summer release ever.

Sources say that Johnson and Statham's onscreen chemistry inspired Universal to shoot plenty of extra material with the duo, which may end up surfacing as DVD extras.

Obama's spokesman said the former US president, who is popular in France, was not making a formal endorsement. On Thursday, Macron spoke to former president Barack Obama in a phone call which his campaign publicized.

A scene was filmed for Fate of the Furious to set-up the spin-off but Vin Diesel quickly became furious about the idea once he found out. It's written by Chris Morgan, the main scribe of the franchise.

"And, honestly, we have some big themes and things we're talking about, we're just not there in terms of where exactly we're gonna go yet", he said. "I thank you everybody at Universal and the "Fast and Furious" family".

The studio is taking the Disney/Lucasfilm approach to the "Star Wars" universe by expanding its biggest cash-cow property.

Jason Statham also understands the love for Han and he teases that perhaps we don't know the whole story quite yet. The spinoff will make Dwayne Johnson's U.S. Diplomatic Security Agent, Luke Hobbs to form an alliance with Jason Statham's, Decker Shaw for a film that conceivably could be made while they are figuring the next "Fast and Furious" installment. A spin-off is surely another hit knowing that it is a "Fast and Furious" inspired.
