Fast Five Sets New Franchise Record at US Weekend B-O

MAY 2, 2011 - Fast and Furious 5 (or Fast Five) made off with an estimated US$83.6 million at 3,644 locations in North America over the May Day weekend. The action sequel shot past Fast and Furious's US$71 million start for a new franchise high.

Fast Five more than doubled fellow Rio de Janeiro adventure, Rio (US$39.2 million), to claim the biggest opening of 2011. It was also the third highest-grossing opening weekend outside of the summer and holiday seasons, behind Alice in Wonderland (2010)'s $116.1 million and The Passion of the Christ's US$83.8 million.

Water for Elephants retreated 46 percent to an estimated US$9.1 million for a US$32.3 million sum in 10 days.

Meanwhile, Thor pulled in an estimated US$83 million from 56 foreign markets, a week before the Marvel comic book adaptation opens in North America. Top-ranked openings included Britain (US$9 million), France (US$8.1 million) and South Korea (US$5.7 million). Its foreign total stands at US$93 million after the Paramount Pictures release got an early start in Australia last weekend.

Owning a franchise is more than owning a business where you have to be there every day in order to make money. It’s hard to enjoy some of the benefits of business ownership when you are the business.
