This weekend’s Box Office had some pretty big competition. You had the sequels to Fast & Furious and The Hangover; plus an animated kids movie in, Epic. It’s a bit of a surprise to see that the sixth entry in the Fast & the Furious series take the top spot. Bringing in $98mil dollars, the Vin Diesel and Rock combination has made it the #1 film in the franchise as well.
Hangover III and Epic brought in $42mil and $34mil respectively, making the total Box Office earnings the biggest Memorial Day weekend of all time.
|1.||Fast & Furious 6||$98,528,000||$98.5|
|2.||The Hangover III||$42,400,000||$54.2|
|3.||Star Trek Into Darkness||$38,000,000||$146.8|
|5.||Iron Man 3||$19,424,000||$367.5|
|6.||The Great Gatsby 3D||$13,705,000||$114.4|
Next week, After Earth will be coming to theaters and it’ll be interesting to see how it turns out. I’m not personally looking forward to it, and I hope that Fast & Furious 6 is #1 again. Stay Tuned to DFAT for the next Weekend Roundup!
