Box Office Breakdown: Vin Diesel Revs His Way Back to #1

Fast and Furious

Vin Diesel’s come a long way in just a short amount of time.

Back in September, the action star’s last film, Babylon A.D, debuted to a disappointing $11.5 million and a 2nd place finish. Seven months later, he’s nearly septupled that amount.

Fast & Furious, the fourth installment of the racing series, pulled in a whopping $70.9 million over the last three days. That gross easily broke the 2009 record set by Monsters vs. Aliens just one week ago. The movie reunited the original’s four stars (Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez and Jordana Brewster) and bested the debut of 2003’s 2 Fast and 2 Furious by over $20 million.

Friday’s only other wide screen release, , opened in 6th place with $5.7 million in ticket sales.
