Nobody foresaw that Li’s collection of articles would develop into a remarkably successful film voyage. Despite its seemingly improbable trajectory, the franchise defied the odds and flourished.

The momentum shift is particularly evident in the domestic market, where the earnings stand at a relatively modest $145 million. Nevertheless, the film’s prospects are rekindled on the international stage, where the franchise’s universal appeal has historically translated to remarkable achievements.

Comparing Fast X with its predecessors within the franchise, a distinctive pattern emerged. The film’s international prosperity outshines earlier installments like Fast Five, underscoring its global resonance and amplifying the legacy of the Fast & Furious saga.
