According to Forbes, this 1660's race car melodrama earned an A+ from Cinemascore, and is likely to top $100 million domestic.
"It’s great because this is a movie that has action scenes and it’s very exciting, but it’s not a superhero movie made for teenagers," Phedon said in an interview with Film School Rejects. "This is about good, solid characters. It’s a buddy movie about characters who are working outside of a dominant corporation, going against the system. It’s nice. It’d be nice if this finds an audience and shows studios that in the current environment of cinema, there is room for something like this."
