My fifth involvement on this wonderful franchise has just set a new box office record for an opening weekend ($532.5K) surpassing STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS and JURASSIC WORLD. I'm very proud of all of us for what was accomplished on this picture - especially, breaking the Cuban/American barrier and being able to film in Havana, Cuba. What an education and great experience that was. Our two Cuban camera assistants were absolutely wonderful. I expect that we may be back for FF9! At least I hope so!!!
