'Fast Five' Favors Spectacle Over Teeny Brazilian Bikinis
THR caught up with Paul Walker and Vin Diesel in Rio for the inside story on the year's first smash hit movie.
Wait a minute! The fifth movie in an action franchise is supposed to be less popular than the rest -- but Fast Five is the year's biggest domestic hit so far. It could double the opening weekend grosses of Rio. It scored 50 percent higher on Rottentomatoes than the first film in the series, 2001's The Fast and the Furious, and almost three times higher than 2009's Fast and Furious. It got a perfect A CinemaScore.
