Fast and Furious 9: Release Date is May 22, 2020

Universal has moved Fast and Furious 9 back six weeks, from April 10 to May 22, 2020, the Memorial Day weekend.

It’s the second backwards shift for the title. In 2017, Universal moved the film back a year from April 19, 2019, to April 10, 2020.

The move leaves April 10, 2020, without a title for now, although MGM also announced a few minutes later that it would open Bond 25 on April 8, 2002.

In its new slot, Fast and Furious 9 will compete with Warner’s Godzilla vs. Kong and Paramount’s The Spongebob Movie.

The eight films in the franchise, launched in 2001, have collectively grossed more than $5 billion worldwide.

Furious 7: All-Time Champion

Furious 7, which featured the late Paul Walker’s final appearance, is the top performer, grossing $1.5 billion globally.

The first spinoff title, Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw hits theaters on August. 2.
