Moviegoers are still hot for the fast cars and action of “Fast & Furious 6.” The sequel held onto the number spot at the domestic box office over the weekend leaving two new films eating its dust.

“Fast & Furious 6” earned an estimated $34.5 million pushing its two week domestic total to around $170 million. In second, the new magic heist film, “Now You See Me” with about $28 million, and in third, the Will and Jaden Smith sci-fi flick, “After Earth” with around $27 million.

The big story is the failure of the Smith father and son film to create a blockbuster opening in the U.S. Has Will Smith lost his crown as the biggest movie star in the world? More on Smith and the serious money business at the box office on Forbes.
