After a massive opening weekend at the US box office grossing US$72.5 million and re-writing box office history, Fast & Furious co-star Paul Walker, has confirmed a fifth instalment of the franchise is a ‘go’.
“With the way things opened up, Vin and I will be coming back. We’re making a fifth one, and we’re going to Brazil, that’s it” Paul Walker said on a Los Angeles morning radio program.
With almost all the original cast on board in Fast & Furious, the movie has smashed box office records with the largest April opening in history.
The movie also took off in overseas markets too, with an Easter weekend gross of US$46.5 million and virtually guaranteeing more of those 10-second cars on the big screen.
“Fast” had already hit US$209 million worldwide and that was prior to openings in Australia (news in, opening night in Australia was $2.5 million and should hit $20 million), China and Italy, notoriously strong markets for this genre.
We don’t know about you, but we are looking forward to those 10-second cars lighting up the streets of Rio De Janeiro.
