'Fast & Furious 6' tops weekend box office

With its supercharged muscle cars, "Fast & Furious 6" raced to first place at the box office for the second consecutive weekend, The Associated Press reports.

The Universal Pictures film is expected to add another $34.5 million to its North American ticket sales, keeping it in the No. 1 spot after opening to more than $120 million over the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

Box office analyst Paul Dergarabedian said the sixth installment in the street-racing franchise was "preordained to be No. 1 again." But in a season of sequels, three original films -- "Now You See Me," "After Earth" and "Epic" -- were among the most popular at cinemas over the weekend.
