Fast Five Opens at Number One at the Box Office

Box Office: Fast Five Steps on the Gas to Break Records

Ladies and gentleman, Fast Five has started the box office's engines! In its opening weekend, the fourth sequel in the car racing franchise opened at number one, raking in $83.6 million to claim the title of the biggest opening of 2011. It's also the most any of the Fast and the Furious films has made in its first weekend.

It zoomed past the winner of the last couple of weeks, Rio, which came in second with $14.4 million. Tyler Perry's Madea's Big Happy Family swooped into the next spot with $10 million, while Robert Pattison's drama Water For Elephants pulled into fourth with $9.1 million. Another new release, Prom, just barely made it into the top five with a mere $5 million.

i was really surprised to hear that ANY movie made that kind of money in April - but i'm not really that surprised after seeing how many folks were there. i had very little interest in seeing it but humored my husband and went - and kind of enjoyed myself. i even saw that my dad went to see it - so there was mass appeal for some reason.
