Published on May 21, 2023

“Fast X” opened with $67.5 million this weekend to lead all North American box office films, according to industry estimates released Sunday.

The latest edition of the long-running action franchise, which some have criticized for encouraging the dangerous trend of street racing, was far ahead of “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3,” which grossed $31.9 million in its third week of release, Comscore reported.

Third place went to “The Super Mario Bros. Movie,” which took in $9.8 million Friday through Sunday in its seventh week.

“Book Club: The Next Chapter” was fourth with $3 million in its second week, followed by “Evil Dead Rise” with $2.3 million in its fifth week.

Rounding out the top 10 domestic releases, as estimated by Comscore, were “John Wick: Chapter 4” ($1.33 million), “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret” ($1.32 million), “Hypnotic” ($825,000), “MET Opera: Don Giovanni” ($701,025) and “BlackBerry” ($525,000).
