One of the most highly anticipated box office rivalries of the Summer has been settled, resulting in the biggest Memorial Day weekend total box office since 2011. Fast & Furious 6 emerged victorious with a $98.5 million haul, while its stiffest competition, fellow new release The Hangover Part III, earned less than half as much, taking in $42.4 million. Last week's winner, Star Trek Into Darkness, added $38 million to its total, while animated family film Epic earned $34.2 million in its first week. Iron Man 3 hung in the top five with $19.4 million, and Richard Linklater's Before Midnight took in $274,000 in limited release.
