SPAIN: 'Hangover 3' Opens #1; Can 'Fast 6' Outgross 'Iron Man 3'?
on June 05, 2013
The Hangover Part III edged out Fast & Furious 6 to top the box office in Spain last weekend. The two films combined to outgross the cumulative earnings of all other films in the top ten. The race between the comedy and the action caper shows more distance, however, when taking into account the films' per-screen averages. The Hangover Part III premiered with a $2.6 million weekend and $6,379 average across 397 screens. Fast & Furious 6 posted a strong $2.1 million weekend in its sophomore frame, reaching an $8.7 million cume. The latest Fast sequel edged out the comedy with 531 screens, but was only able to earn an average of $4,042 despite its wider release. Fast & Furious 6 has an outside shot at outgrossing Iron Man 3 in Spain; the superhero sequel has grossed $12.4 million after six weeks. If Fast & Furious 6 can keep its momentum, it could potentially become the biggest hit of the year at the Spanish box office.
