'Fast & Furious 6' Blows the Doors Off Holiday Box Office With $122M

"Fast & Furious 6" turned its showdown with "The Hangover Part III" into a blowout, and drove the Memorial Day weekend box office into the record books.

The latest entry in Universal's cars and criminals franchise is roaring to a $122 million four-day haul in its debut, and setting the pace for an overall box office that will top $300 million for the weekend. That easily beats the previous best Memorial Day holiday haul, which was the $276 million rung up in 2011, when "Hangover II" led the pack with $85 million.
