Fast and Furious Leaves Box Office Records in The Dust

Fast and Furious Leaves Box Office Records in The Dust
The latest installment of "the Fast and The Furious" franchise, "Fast and Furious", has a record breaking opening weekend. The film brought in $72 million, far exceeding the amount that many thought the film would bank.

"2 Fast 2 Furious", the second installment, opened with $50 million and was the previous record holder for the franchise.

"Fast and Furious" was up against "Adventureland" which brought in only $6 million for its opening weekend.  Both films had wide releases, but "Fast and Furious" earned a staggering $20,950 per screen average.
