'2 Fast 2 Furious' Whoops 'Nemo' At The Box Office

'Furious' takes in $52.1 million over the weekend.

Paul Walker is faster and more furious this time around, at least with his race to the top of the box-office heap.

"2 Fast 2 Furious" earned $52.1 million over the weekend, topping "The Fast and the Furious" by $12 million in its opening weekend two years ago. As expected, about 75 percent of the film's audience was under age 25, according to studio polling. [article id="1471992"](Click for photos from "2 Fast 2 Furious.")[/article]
