Last year China surpassed the US for the first time in history as the world’s highest grossing market. Something attributable to the management of the COVID-19 crisis, but which only confirmed the preeminence that this country has been acquiring for some time now, significantly changing the way in which blockbusters are considered from Hollywood.
No major can currently afford to ignore how their film can be received in the Chinese market; notion that is reinforced by how certain franchises have owed a good part of their box office to this public. This is the case of Fast & Furious , which has always had the sympathy of some Chinese viewers who Universal wants to especially like.
This is how it can be reasoned that, according to media such as Deadline , Fast & Furious 9 has advanced its premiere in China five weeks before its scheduled date in the US In this way, the ninth installment of the franchise (which has already passed for several postponements due to the coronavirus) will arrive in this country on May 21 , while in the US they will have to wait until June 25 . Regarding Spain, on the other hand, Fast & Furious 9 will not arrive until July 2 , making it very difficult between some things and others that the public can remain oblivious to spoilers from the Internet.
In addition, Universal’s measure is not reduced to China, but also extends to countries such as Russia, South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore and Vietnam. All of which leads to the conversation being well advanced by the time Fast & Furious 9 opens here, but ultimately it’s not something that seems to worry Universal.
This decision is evidenced by this decision and also by the trailer he recently released, of such a length that we could get to know more closely the villain played by John Cena (Dom Toretto’s secret brother) and the appearance of the rocket car that confirms what has been rumored for some time: In Fast & Furious 9 the family will travel to space. And we that we rejoice.
