Los Angeles - It's a blowout at the box office.
Fast & Furious 6 is revving past The Hangover Part III in the No 1 position at the Memorial Day holiday weekend box office.
Universal Pictures' sixth instalment of its muscle car franchise featuring Vin Diesel and Paul Walker debuted with $98.5m domestically from Friday to Sunday, according to studio estimates on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the final edition of the raunchy Warner Bros comedy trilogy starring Zach Galifianakis, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms opened with $42.1m in the No 2 spot.
Universal estimates that by the end of the four-day holiday weekend on Monday, Fast & Furious 6 will have pulled in $122.2m domestically and $275.5m worldwide. That would give it the second-biggest opening of the year behind Iron Man 3.
Paramount Pictures' science-fiction sequel Star Trek: Into Darkness earned $38m at No 3 in its second weekend at the box office, while the Fox animated film Epic opened at No 4 with $34.2m.
Overall domestic receipts for the four-day Memorial Day weekend are expected to come in ahead of 2011's record-breaking $276m.
Paul Dergarabedian, an analyst for box-office tracker Hollywood.com, estimated that four-day revenues this time will total $323m, about 15% above Memorial Day weekend in 2011, when The Hangover Part II delivered a $103.4m debut.
