Universal Pictures, the studio which released the film, is likely breathing a sigh of relief having a bona fide breakaway hit, after having a few years of box office duds. The studio was so sure that Fast Five was going to be successful, that another sequel, Fast Six, is already in the works.
Rio, the musical animated hit, was #2 at the box office, taking in another $14.4 million. This brings its total to $103.6 million in its third week of release.
Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family, which was in the second spot at the box office last weekend, dropped to #3 this week earning $10.1 million. Perry is already at work on his next film, Good Deeds, which will be released in 2012.
Rounding out the top five movies were the romantic drama, Water For Elephants, starring Robert Pattinson and Academy Award winner Reese Witherspoon at #4 earning $9.1 million, and at #5 was the Disney teen flick, Prom, pulling in $5.0 million.

As everyone expected, Battle:Los Angeles dominated at the box office this weekend taking in $36.0 million. The film received mostly positive reviews, and the special effects were amazing. There was no doubt Battle: Los Angeles would take the top spot, it was just a matter of much it would earn.
The family animated movie, Rango, which claimed last weeks top spot, fell to second place grossing $23.1 million. This is not bad considering three other movies, Red Riding Hood, Battle: Los Angeles, and Mars Needs Moms, all opened this weekend.
Red Riding Hood finished in third place pulling in a very disappointing $14.1 million. The film received mostly negative reviews, despite having a likeable cast led by Amanda Seyfried.
Rounding out the top five at the box office were the romantic thriller, The Adjustment Bureau, starring Matt Damon and Emily Blunt, which came in forth place earning $11.5 million, and the disappointment of the weekend was the Walt Disney animated family film, Mars Needs Moms, making only $6.8 million in the fifth place spot.
