“F9” continued to outpace the competition at the box office, grossing $30.1 million over the extended holiday weekend, according to industry estimates released Monday.

The latest entry in the long-running and hugely profitable “Fast & Furious” franchise has now made over $123 million at theaters in the United States and Canada since opening last weekend, Comscore reported.

It was expected to surpass $500 million worldwide Monday, making it the only U.S. film to do so since 2019, before the coronavirus pandemic.

Second place went to “The Boss Baby 2: Family Business,” which took in $20 million domestically Friday through Monday in its opening weekend.

Third place went to another franchise entry, “The Forever Purge,” which opened with $15.6 million.

A couple more sequels were next, with “A Quiet Place Part II” at $5.22 million and “The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard” at $3.9 million.

Rounding out the top 10 domestic releases, as estimated by Comscore, were “Cruella” ($3.1 million), “Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway” ($2.8 million), “Zola” ($1.6 million), “The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It” ($1.54 million) and “In the Heights” ($1.53 million).
