“Fast Five” racing toward $80M weekend


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: The “Fast and Furious” franchise continued to flex its muscle at the box office, proving to detractors exactly why a fifth “Fast” was necessary and justifying the already-teased sixth installment.

“Fast Five,” the fifth film in the 10-year-old series and the third directed by Justin Lin, grossed an estimated $33 million on Friday. THR notes that if estimates hold, “Fast Five” could race to an $80M opening weekend.

Opening in April 2009, “Fast & Furious” opened to $70 million en route to $155 million domestically and $353 million worldwide. It looks like “Fast Five” will top that. The film already has performed well overseas, grabbing an estimated $43 million to date.

But as THR reports, the box office power of “Fast Five” did not extend to its weekend rivals.

“Prom” “struggled to gross even $2 million on Friday, meaning it could only open to $6 million, a disappointment,” while The Weinstein Co.’s 3D cartoon “Hoodwinked Too! Hood vs. Evil” grossed “roughly $1.2 million to $1.3 million on Friday.”
