Posted by at 6:31 am on May 3, 2011

Ticket sales of $86.2 million for the fifth volume in the high-speed car chase series, in which Paul Walker and Vin Diesel reunite with fellow Fast veterans, marked the biggest premiere for any film so far this year.

It is also currently racing ahead in the UK box office. In it’s opening weekend last weekend it took £5,332,096.

The film is directed by Taiwan-born Justin Lin who also directed Fast & Furious (2009), the fourth instalment of the series.

Lin’s versions of Fast & Furious are generally rated by critics as being better, with slicker sequences than the first three in the series by original director Rob Cohen.
