It was the first weekend in theatres for the Wolf Pack‘s sequel, The Hangover Part 2 this weekend. There was so much anticipation for this film because of how funny the first one was and how little the previews gave away for this sequel. It was a must see for so many! The film was shown in 6,700 screens at 3,615 locations and after this opening weekend, the film has now already brought in over $118 million. That’s insane. In fact, it kicked off the weekend as the top-grossing Friday ever for a live-action comedy, more than double of what Sex and the City 2 did.

Another sequel that also kicked butt at the box office this weekend was Kung Fu Panda 2, which has now brought in almost $54 million after only it’s first weekend. I have to admit, I haven’t even seen the first one, but I’ve heard good things.

Two more films from big movie franchises that are beyond their sequels were also in the top ten list again this weekend. Find out which films they are and what other flicks did well in the list below.
