Vin Diesel is one of the most established actors in the industry. The American actor first rose to fame back in 1995 when he wrote, directed, and starred in the short drama movie, Multi-Facial. Despite having played the main character in many action movies, Diesel is best known for his portrayal of Dominic Toretto in the Fast & Furious franchise.
The XXX actor has played the main character of the franchise in 8 out of 10 movies of the series and most recently reprised his role as the protagonist of the series in Fast X.

Before the release of Fast X, it was speculated that the movie might mark the end of the franchise. However, Fast X was left on a cliffhanger and it was revealed that 2 more sequels of the franchise are still in development.
Over the years, the fans have gotten more and more frustrated with the series’ never-ending plot. Only the first four movies of the franchise were about street racing. Ever since Fast Five, the series has transitioned over to more heisting than racing and it has pissed off the fans over the years. With the increasing absurdity of stunts in each movie, fans have continued to troll Vin Diesel and Universal Studios for making more sequels.
After Fast X grossed over $600 million, fans took to Twitter to troll the actor once again. One user wrote, "vin diesel's money printing machine"
Although the movie has made over $600 million, one user mentioned that it is still a flop, the movie needs a collection of at least $700 million just to break even.
Yeah it's production budget is estimated to be $340 million, it needs to make well over 700 million just to break even lmao
