Friday Box Office: 'Fast Five' leads the pack with $34M
The fifth film in the franchise "Fast Five" dominated the box office on Friday, Apr. 29, bringing in almost $34 million. The action flick starring Vin Diesel and Paul Walker is on track to earn $80 million this weekend. The film was made from $125 million.
The weekend's other new release, Disney's "Prom," didn't have quite as much luck -- the rom-com brought in only $1.8 million and should make $8 million over the course of the weekend. On the bright side, "Prom" only cost $10 million to make.
Last weekend's box office champ "Rio" earned $3.2 million and should pass the $100 million mark this weekend. "Madea's Big Happy Family" brought in $3.1 million and "Water For Elephants" made $2.7 million. "Hoodwinked Too!" only brought in $1.1 million.
