The Hangover Part 2 Breaks Box Office Record For A Comedy
After “The Hangover” Came out and its popularity soared, movie goers were ready for the sequel and the box office numbers confirms it!!!
So, exactly how much DID The Hangover Part II make this Memorial Day weekend??
Oh, just a mere $86.5 million for the three-day weekend, which makes the movie the highest grossing live-action comedy for a holiday weekend.
The movie beat out the original record holder, Austin Powers in Goldmember, which made $73.1 million. It’s also the second-best opening for an R-rated film, topping The Passion of the Christ.
If you include the full 5-day opening from Thursday, the movie made a massive $137.6 million. The first Hangover made less than half of that amount in its first five days.
WOW!! We knew it was going to be big, but for a movie that didn’t get the greatest reviews, this is really impressive.
Here are the top five box office results:
1. The Hangover Part II — $86.5 mil
2. Kung Fu Panda 2 — $48.0 mil
3. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides — $39.3 mil
4. Bridesmaids — $16.4 mil
5. Thor — $9.4 mil
