Who makes the top 10?
7. Fast & Furious 6
Release date: May 24
Comparison: "Fast Five" ($209 million)
Prediction: $215 million
Why: Unlike many action franchise, "The Fast and The Furious" has defied all odds by growing in popularity over the past two films. Interest in "Fast and Furious 6" is at fever pitch (especially online) and Universal was confident enough in its prospects to slot it on Memorial Day weekend opposite expected weekend champ "The Hangover, Pt. III." Plus, the studio has already green lit a seventh installment. Granted, there will likely be some cannibalization between the "Hangover" and "FF" audiences, but not enough to keep the road racers from a franchise record gross.
