Box Office: Fast and Furious Races to the Top

Wowza! The fourth installment of the Fast and Furious franchise debuted this weekend and earned an estimated $72.5 million, easily taking the No. 1 spot at the box office. Variety reports this represents one of the biggest box office surprises of the season and is the biggest April opening ever.

Monsters vs. Aliens continued to do solid business and came in second place with an estimated $33.5 million. The top five was rounded out by The Haunting in Connecticut, Knowing, and I Love You, Man in third, fourth, and fifth place respectively. Finally, a movie I really enjoyed, Adventureland, debuted at No. 6.

Did any of you see Fast and Furious? Did your theater have shaky seats?

My sister and I absolutely LOVED the first one...we saw it about 10 times in the theater (the $1.50 theater, mind you - we're not independently wealthy!). Can't wait to see this one!

I thought it was much better than the second(Tokyo Drift) but not near as good as the origial. 2.5 stars out of 5. But its entertaining

No surprise that this topped the box office, just like the first one, which made more in the opening weekend than the whole film cost to make. People like to get snarky about Vin Diesel, but he's hugely popular. Not just in action films either. The Pacifier opened on top, and most of his films are big in the home market too. He's one of a few people I make a point of seeing all their work.

I really want to see this but will probably end up seeing it when it comes out on dvd. My friend went the other night and it was sold out. I'm glad it did so well.

I am confused with this movie. Is it a new one? Or did they re release the first one?
