Fast & Furious 6 heads up US box office

Biggest Memorial Day weekend of all time

Fast & Furious 6has powered to the top of the US box office, one of a clutch of big releases that produced the biggest Memorial Day box office of all time.

The new film took an impressive $98.5 million in its opening weekend, proving that the public’s appetite for souped-up muscle cars is as rabid as ever.

The presence of The Hangover 3, Star Trek Into Darkness, Iron Man 3 and The Great Gatsby in the top ten meant that this years haul easily surpassed the previous record of $223 million back in 2011, with the final figure yet to be confirmed.

Iron Man 3’s continuing presence in the top 10 saw its overall take sail past $1.1 billion, a remarkable performance that will surely increase the chances of a fourth solo outing for Tony Stark.

Meanwhile, Univeral bosses will be thinking that the upcoming seventh Fast & Furious is looking to be an increasingly lucrative proposal…

      I can't believe the hugely disappointing Iron Man 3 has grossed over $1 billion, Thor 2 better at least make half of that.

      I've just got bk n it deserves every penny it earns, which is more than I can say for a large portion of the films that have come before! Not to mention that it was what Iron Man 3 should have been! Pure underrated brilliance n that fact the franchise has reinvented itself n become more popular especially amongst the super hero over haul is incredible! Hope it tears the box office a new assssss hole! Bring on 7...... Oh n I should add I'm a massive super hero movie fan etc, but action movies need what the F & F franchise has.... Without spandex : D canny wait for Man of Steel though XMX
