Last time we did one of these Long Distance Box Offices, we looked at some of the big blockbusters of the summer
and this probably won't be our last Long Distance Box Office about summer movies, but we wanted to take a closer look at one particular weekend this summer that will probably be discussed a lot over the next couple weeks and probably for the rest of the summer, and that's Memorial Day weekend.
Every year, at least one or two big movies have opened big over the holiday weekend and there have only been a couple Memorial Day weekends in recent memory where nothing opened that big.
This year that just won't be the case because we have two big sequels to movies that each opened over $80 million as well as a new family animated adventure hoping to follow other Memorial Day animated hits. The big feud for the top spot will come between two primarily male-driven sequels, Fast and Furious 6
and The Hangover Part III
. This may sound familiar to those who remember when The Hangover Part II
took on Kung Fu Panda 2
two years back and absolutely trounced it. Things might be a little bit different this time since The Hangover Part III
is taking on a PG-13 movie that's going to be just as or even more appealing to guys of all ages.
