About the Fast & Furious Saga
Over the course of ten films that have stoked passion in an ever-expanding audience and have earned more than $6 billion at the worldwide box office, Universal Pictures’ record-smashing, homegrown Fast & Furious Saga has become the studio’s most-profitable and longest-running franchise. Across social media platforms, the fan following for the movies and cast has grown into the biggest of any active franchise. In addition to 2017’s The Fate of the Furious, which debuted in theaters as the biggest global opening of all time, and 2021’s blockbuster F9, the franchise has expanded to a multitude of offerings – from toys and video games to an animated series and the successfully launched spin-off franchise, Hobbs & Shaw. The tenth chapter in the Fast & Furious Saga, Fast X, arrives in theaters May 19, 2023.
