Universal’s Hobbs & Shaw returned to first place on the international box office charts after a massive $102 million debut in China.

The Fast & Furious spinoff, starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, collected another $120 million overseas, boosting its foreign tally to $441 million. Hobbs & Shaw is nearing the $600 million mark globally, with ticket sales currently hovering at a sizable $588 million.

In China, Hobbs & Shaw set numerous records, including the biggest August opening weekend ever and the second biggest Hollywood debut of the year behind Disney’s Avengers: Endgame. It also marks the franchise’s second-biggest launch in the Middle Kingdom, a record still held by 2017’s The Fate of the Furious with $184 million.

Disney’s The Lion King also hit a new benchmark, crossing $1.5 billion globally to become the ninth-highest grossing movie of all time. Overseas, Jon Favreau’s photorealistic remake of the animated classic is expected to surpass the $1 billion mark today, which will make it only the ninth title to ever hit that milestone. The movie pulled in $30 million this weekend, led by a $15.9 million debut in Italy.
