Universal’s Hobbs & Shaw is easily winning the weekend box office race after speeding to $23.7 million on Friday for a projected domestic debut of $60 million, more than enough to take down holdovers The Lion King and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. The Fast & Furious spinoff – starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham – is doing far bigger big business overseas, where the high-octane series is one of the most popular action franchises in modern times. The spinoff is launching this weekend in most of the world, followed later this month by South Korea and China. The pic is looking at a weekend foreign haul of $120 million for a global opening of $180 million through Sunday. According to The Hollywood Reporter, heading into the weekend, tracking services suggested a North American debut of $60 million to $65 million, while more bullish box office analysts predicted $70 million or more. Nevertheless, $60 million would mark the best opening of Johnson’s career outside of the main Fast & Furious movies, not adjusted for inflation (ditto for Statham). And it’s the biggest domestic opening of the summer outside of Disney movies and superhero pics, passing up John Wick: Chapter 3 — Parabellum ($56.8 million). Directed by David Leitch (Deadpool 2), Hobbs & Shaw nabbed an A- CinemaScore and strong exit scores on PostTrak. The Universal movie has no shortage of star power; the cast also includes Idris Elba, Helen Mirren and Vanessa Kirby — along with two high-profile surprise cameos (Ryan Reynolds and Kevin Hart).
At 73, Helen Mirren has learnt a few things about life… finding power in insecurity, why marriage is ultimately the right choice and the joy of a good charity job. With her return to television imminent – playing Catherine the Great in a new miniseries – Emma Clifton looks at the wisdom, worries and loves of the illustrous star. Helen Mirren often makes headlines, and because she’s Helen Mirren, there’s always a feisty coolness to the story behind the news. Recently, there was one such moment when she was asked if she had any regrets about how she has been treated as a young actress. “Being old is cool, but, oh, how I wish I were 18 now with the strength and courage to say ‘Fuck Off,” she said. “If I could go back and tell my younger self anything, it would be this: “Darling, learn these two words: Fuck. Off. All my life I never learnt to say those words, I just learned to be nice, to play along”.

Earlier today, Helen Mirren attended the premiere for “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw” in London – probably the best thing to do in London on a day like this. She was joined by her “Fast & Furious ” children Jason Statham and Vanessa Kirby, as well as the film’s enemy, Idris Elba. It’s Helen’s second appearance as gangstr mom Magdalene “Queeny” Shaw in the franchise – a third appearance is currently being filmed for the 9th installment of the series, which will be released next Summer. Pictures from the London premiere have been added to the photo gallery.

Helen’s second installment in the Fast & Furious franchise – the Rock/Statham spin-off “Hobbs & Shaw” – will release theaters August 2. Her character’s name has received an add-on, the Shaw family matriarch is now known as Magdalene “Queeny” Shaw. There you go. Univeral Pictures is starting the film’s promotion this weekend with its Los Angeles premiere (which Helen didn’t attend) and a first batch of video clips, including an on-set interview with Helen and the b-roll, in which she is seen thanking director David Leitch after wrapping her scenes and demanding “more stunts” for the next time. As much as we know there will be a next time next year, when Helen will reprise her role in the ninth “Fast & Furious”. You can find both the b-roll and on-set interview below and in the video archive, as well as screencaptures in the photo gallery.
Let’s hope Helen Mirren has seen her performance in The Fast & Furious 8 in the meantime, because she has another one coming up. In the latest trailer for Universal’s Fast & Furious spin-off Hobbs & Shaw, Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham come out swinging. The trailer then pivots to a widescreen introduction of Idris Elba’s Brixton Lore, a cyber-genetically-enhanced criminal mastermind, who announces he’s coming for the duo and Shaw’s sister, Hattie Shaw (Vanessa Kirby). The latter stole from Lore a catastrophically deadly virus, and Lore wants it back. In line with previous Fast & Furious films, the world-saving mission becomes part family business, with Helen Mirren’s red-lipsticked Magdalene Shaw even making a brief appearance in a red jumpsuit behind a glass partition. “Look after your sister,” she says before Hobbs and Shaw buckle up to take down a slew of international baddies. A barrage of punches, car chases, explosions and airplane ejections follow, as Lore re-appears, announcing himself as “black Superman” before going head-to-head with the leading duo. However with Hobbs and Shaw seemingly unable to slow the genetically altered villain and his army of mercenaries, the two go off the grid to Hobbs’ home turf. Written by Chris Morgan, a regular scribe for the Universal franchise, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw hits theaters on Aug. 2.
