Fast and Furious 6 sets the box-office ablaze

MUMBAI: The sixth installment of Universal‘s Fast and Furious franchise races to a whopping $ 35 million (approximately) for Friday, while some Analysts even go about projecting these figures to a massive $ 45 million.
The Vin Diesel high octane starrer Fast 6 premiered on Thursday with a promising opening of $ 6.5 million as against its last installment‘s $ 3.8 million. Given the seasonal period the action flick is estimated to mint around a stout $ 100 million over the four day weekend as against last installment‘s $ 70 million in its three day debut recording to be the franchise‘s best opening.
Warner Bros‘ third installment in the Hangover series records a dismal $ 11.8 million, a sheer disappointment when compared to its previous installment which recorded over $ 31 million during the same period. The Hangover III should finish up in the $60 million range during the four-day weekend down 30 per cent from The Hangover Part II indicating audiences may be tired of the R-rated comedy franchise.
The competitive fire is fueled with Fast 6 selling over 50 per cent tickets than The Hangover III on
Scaling successfully amongst these is the $ 93 million grossing family film ‘Epic‘ by Fox Blue Sky Animation that projected an impressive $ 40 million during its four day weekend. The business of these three propelled a memorial weekend box office weekend surpassing the $273 million benchmark set in 2011.
