'Fast Five' Tops Box Office

'Fast Five' Tops Box Office

Fast Five had a huge opening week at the box office, bringing in $83.6 million in ticket sales!

The latest installment in the Fast and the Furious franchise beat out its previous opening weekend record of $71 million and topped Rio, the week’s second place finisher, by nearly $70 million.

Third place went to Madea’s Big Happy Family, with $10 million, followed by Water for Elephants with $9 million.

Rounding out the top five was Disney’s Prom, with a lower than expected $4.7 million.

WHAT DID YOU SEE at the movies this weekend?

    Saw it last night it was pretty good, can’t wait for the next one I can’t believe she’s alive!!!

    Fast Five is one of the year’s best films. It was f*****g epic.
    The fight between Vin Diesel/Dwayne Johnson knocked everyone on their ass and were so amazing and action-packed, audiences all over the world were left breathless.
    I was very disappointed that they had apparently not included Eva Mendes in Fast Five but she has a surprise cameo in the film.

  • William Forrester

    I hope that they only make Fast and the Furious 6/Fast Six if the script is good and they hopefully conclude the series.

  • Shantel

    Paul Walker felt too much like he had been reduced to playing Vin Diesel’s sidekick when he was originally the lead when the film series first began.
    By the looks of it, the next film will feature –
    Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Elsa Pataky, Ludacris, Eva Mendes and Michelle Rodriguez.
    It would be good if they also bring back James Remar and Ted Levine.

  • Keyes

    Elsa Pataky is the best thing about Fast Five.
    She is so beautiful and voluptuous. This incredibly gorgeous and curvaceous young woman is pure Spanish perfection. I love her. She’s a really sweet girl.
    I hope that she does more American mainstream movies from now on.
    She would be an excellent choice to play one of Chris Pine’s several human love interests in Star Trek 12.

    Its rude to put up parts of the movie that are surprises and ruin it for people who have yet to see the movie.

    I saw the movie last week,, This is THE BEST action movie I ever saw in my life, PERFECTLY made, absolute EPIC, non-stop action, highest standard fighting scenes, want the DVD now to see it again and again 5*****

  • Catalina

    i’m glad for WFE being in Top 5 after the second week!

  • Alyssa

    Woooo! Fast Five is absolutely breathtaking!

    Oh, God, the only thing that’s going through my head to describe this movie, it’s like sex with an orgasm at the end of it! Whereas the first four movies were like you have sex but you never get the orgasm. A lot of stopping and starting but… oh, I wish I hadn’t said that.

  • marq

    HBO First Look, Fast Five, shares that it was able to be made because of franchise “go anywhere street cred”. Wow.

  • S@n

    WOW! Rio is still in first, anyway! lol

  • The Brit

    Why does Vin Diesel only do Fast and Furious, Riddick and XXX movies? In the summer of 2020, we should expect to see him in Riddick 8, Fast and Furious 9 and XXX 7.

  • Nikki

    I totally agree Fast Five was one of the best movies I have seen in awhile and I totally expected it to be a joke. It was so good and I even paid $17.50 to see it on enhanced theater experience surround sound and picture theater.

  • Celia

    Great job! It was a REALLY good movie. Great way to kick off the summer.
    I want to see it again.

  • Celia

    @William Forrester:

    Me too. And I’m pretty sure they will, especially if you stayed until after the credits!! What a shocker!

  • I n F a m o u s l y C o o L

    It was surprisingly great! Realy well done. I’m sure it’ll be #1 next weekend as well.

  • lovelydee

    I wanna see it so bad.

  • santa barbara dentist

    Really, tops box office? That says a lot about the US.

  • Lilakoi

    I’m dying to see this movie!! Those are three FINE men :p

  • Celia

    @santa barbara dentist:

    It made over 80 million internationally too. It’s total for the weekend worldwide is over 160 million. So not just the US saw this film.

    [Paul Walker felt too much like he had been reduced to playing Vin Diesel’s sidekick>>> I kind of agree with that.]

    Otherwise the movie was AMAZING!!
    The guys were hot, the girls too, lots of action, good acting..
    A little bit “overated” at some parts (I know this is a movie but some things looked so impossible..)

    Anyway, great! I want to see it again and can’t wait for the DVD to be out and for the next one!!

  • peyton


    Indeed I saw it in England! And in France (where I’m from) people are crazy about it!!
