‘Fast 6′ vs. ‘Hangover 3′: Who Will Win the Memorial Day Weekend Box Office?
Memorial Day weekend is always one of the biggest of the year for movies, and 2013 is offering up some juicy options: ‘Fast and Furious 6‘ and ‘The Hangover Part 3.’ (Sorry, ‘Epic,’ but we’re leaving you out of this.) So which one will be getting your dough?
Obviously, these are two highly anticipated sequels to a couple of very, very profitable movies. 2011′s ‘The Hangover Part 2′ made a whopping $586 million worldwide, while ‘Fast Five’ (also released in 2011) made even more: $626 million worldwide. It’s no secret that people are going to flock to the latest installments of these crowd-pleasing franchises in droves.
While both movies are sure to rake in a ton of cash, ‘The Hangover Part 3′ will have the slight advantage of opening a day early, Thursday, May 23, as opposed to ‘Furious,’ which opens on the 24th. ‘Hangover Part 3′ is also — allegedly — the last film in the franchise, while the ‘Furious’ movies will continue for who knows how long. Will that make ‘The Hangover Part 3′ more of a priority for audiences?
