It was the first week of the brand new Fast and the Furious on the South African box office and it put up quite the fight coming in right under The Lion King. Fast and Furious: Hobbs and Shaw will no doubt be a tough contender as it landed in second place in the South African box office top 10 during its opening weekend.
