LOS ANGELES — It’s a blowout at the box office.
“Fast & Furious 6” is revving past “The Hangover Part III” in the No. 1 position at the Memorial Day weekend box office.
Universal Pictures’ sixth installment of its muscle car franchise featuring Vin Diesel and Paul Walker debuted with $98.5 million domestically from Friday to today, according to studio estimates today.
Meanwhile, the third edition of the raunchy Warner Bros. comedy trilogy starring Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms opened with $42.1 million in the No. 2 spot.
Universal estimates that by the end of the four-day holiday weekend Monday, “Fast & Furious 6” will have pulled in $122.2 million domestically and $275.5 million worldwide. That would give it the second-biggest opening of the year behind “Iron Man 3.”
