D-Box Fast & Furious Hobbs & ShawD-BOX Technologies is proud to announce that it is celebrating 10 years of success in the movie business. This milestone coincides with the release of Universal Pictures’ Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, which is fitting for a company that now has been coding the films in this franchise for a decade.

D-BOX burst onto the scene in 2009, with Justin Lin’s Fast & Furious at Hollywood’s iconic TCL Chinese Theatre. This was the fourth film in the much-loved franchise from Universal Pictures, which has earned nearly $5 billion worldwide. Audiences were captivated by the motion technology, and D-BOX has worked on every title in the franchise released since this date.

“With nearly 450 movies in our portfolio today, we are so pleased to know that moviegoers are still excited about seeing the next action-packed blockbuster in D-BOX,” says Claude Mc Master, President and CEO of D-BOX.

Fast & Furious will always be an important part of our success story because it was the very first movie ever coded with our motion technology. In fact, Universal Pictures was the first studio who took a chance on us and for that, we will always be grateful.  The happy coincidence of the release of Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw on our 10-year anniversary is not lost on us and truly bodes well for another decade of thrills and excitement.”
