* The Rock posted this on his Instagram, celebrating the fact that The Fate of The Furious just had the biggest global box office opening weekend EVER.
Biggest global box office opening of all time and the most fun, get the job done, shit talkin' character I've ever played. THANK YOU. I've learned over the years that anytime success comes along I always pause and ask the critical questions. What's the next move? What's the best move? What's the smart move that gives the people what they want? Then my mind drifts to what size off road tires I should put on my next pick up truck. You know, the important stuff. Grateful and thrilled you guys luv the movie! Now the internal dialogue and business strategy begins. #FateOfTheFurious #BiggestOpeningOfAllTime #HobbsTheBeast #StillNeedTheRightTiresForMyRaptor
