In the biggest sign yet that life is left in movie theaters, "F9" sped to a box-office take of $70 million in its first weekend, the biggest pandemic-era opening for a film, according to studio estimates Sunday.
 
The ninth installment in the "Fast & Furious" franchise opened only in theaters, eschewing the hybrid streaming releases of several of the year's films, and had the widest release of any movie since the start of the coronavirus crisis, opening on more than 4,000 screens.

The domestic total for Universal Pictures' "F9" topped the previous pandemic-best of $48.4 million for "A Quiet Place Part II" four weeks ago. It was the biggest opening of any film since "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" in December 2019.

"A Quiet Place Part II" came in a very distant second with $6.2 million. But it has now earned $136.4 million since its release. "The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard" brought in $4.88 million in the third spot.
 
Rounding out the top five: The sequel “Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway” finished fourth ($4.85 million) and Disney's live-action origin story "Cruella," starring Emma Stone as the villainess, was fifth ($3.7 million).
