(Newser) – In a sequel-heavy weekend of film, it was the sequeliest that came out in pole position, with Fast & Furious 6 projected to make at least $122 million this Memorial Day weekend. Moviegoers haven't been racing quite so fast to see Hangover III, which is expected to take in at least $53 million, but may have suffered due to the similar male audience targeted by both flicks, writes the Hollywood Reporter. Rounding out the top three, Star Trek Into Darkness is expected to take in $48 million for the long weekend
