Fast & Furious 6 Still Riding High At US Box Office
While Now You See Me trumps After Earth

Fast and Furious 6

All things considered, this will not be a weekend that Will and son Jaden Smith look back on with fondness. Their latest father/son acting collaboration After Earth faced a pummelling from critics and then suffered a humiliating defeat at the box office across the pond.

For Vin Diesel and the Fast & Furious gang, however, things continue to speed along smoothly, with the sixth instalment staying atop the US charts in its second weekend of release, earning $34.5 million along the way and more than $170 million so far in the States alone. New arrival Now You See Me also did decent business, with the magicians-pull-heists pic making $28 million vanish from punters’ pockets. After Earth, meanwhile, staggered into third place, taking home $27 million.

Animated adventure Epic clung to fourth place with $16.4 million, and fifth-place Star Trek Into Darkness made the same amount.

The Hangover Part III sank to sixth, likely hurt by bad word of mouth, managing just $15.9 million this week. Iron Man 3 was down to seventh, taking in $8 million, while The Great Gatsby was eighth with $6.2 million. At ninth, The Croods made $615,000, with Frances Ha slipping into the top 10 with $552,000.

To see Vin and co drive circles around Will Smith in the full chart rundown, head to Box Office Mojo.

WOW! After Earth only managed $27m Spose it just goes to show even having Smith onboard can't save a "M Night Shaymalan-a-ding-dong!" film. ;-) More
