'The Hangover III' is no match for 'Fast and Furious 6' at the Box Office

fast-furious-6-paul-walker-car.jpgIt's looking like a big Memorial Day weekend at the Box Office already, thanks to the debut of "Furious 6," the latest film in the Vin Diesel and Paul Walker led "Fast and Furious" franchise.  The movie opened Friday with an impressive $39 million opening night take, more than "Fast 5" made on its opening night. It's predicted to rake in around $130 million this weekend alone.

Meanwhile, "The Hangover III" made around $26 million, falling short of the approximately $31 million that "The Hangover II" earned opening night. While it's still considered a hit, "The Hangover III" is underperforming compared to expectations.

Also opening Friday was animated film "Epic," which earned $9 million -- but since it's a kid's movie, its Friday gross isn't necessarily representative of how much it'll rake in over the course of the long weekend.
