Fast and Furious had the best April opening weekend ever for a film, taking in a hefty $72.5 million dollars from Friday to Sunday. The movie is playing on 3,461 screens and averaged an incredible $20,950 per venue. Compared to the other opening weekends for past films in the racing car franchise, Fast and Furious also is the best: 2001's The Fast and the Furious netted $40.1m in its opening weekend followed by 2 Fast 2 Furious in 2003 with $50.5 million and then in 2006 with The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift which earned $24 million opening weekend. Fast and Furious has already earned more in its opening weekend than Toky Drift did in its entire domestic run at theaters ($62.5 million dollars.)

The previous record holder for best April opening was 2003's Anger Management which grossed $42.2 million.

Friday night box office receipts show Fast & Furious leaping out of the starting gate with an incredible $30,111,000 in ticket sales. To give you an idea as to how tremendous that showing is, the all-time highest three-day opening for a movie is currently for 2003's Anger Management with $42.2 million dollars; Fast & Furious is $12m short of besting that record and that's only after one day in release. It's entirely conceivable that Fast & Furious could come very close to enjoying at $70m opening weekend.

If you want to flex your racing muscles right now a new online game that ties into the movie  is waiting for you. Fast and Furious: Desert Run is a Flash-based browser game that puts you behind the wheel of a supercharged car. After selecting which one of the film's two male leads that you want to play as, you're off and racing around twisting curves, looking out for roadblocks and avoiding the police pursuing you. It's a fun way to spend a few minutes.

The final North American one-sheet for Fast and Furious has made its debut on Coming Soon and it features the giant floating heads of the film's four main stars over a muscle car. You definately won't confuse this poster for The Reader or Slumdog Millionaire. See it for yourself.

The latest (and presumably final) trailer for Fast and Furious has just pulled into Yahoo Movies. Clocking in at 2 minutes and 23 seconds, things start off with a foot chase and rough tackle before gunning ahead with the appearance of Vin Diesel and Paul Walker in full. The ending may have you rolling your eyes as plausibility goes out the window but hey, it might look pretty cool when Dom guns it on the big screen.

It's a smartly designed teaser poster for Fast and Furious that MTV's Movies Blog debuted today. You've got the hood of a buffed muscle car front and center and gleaming in the reflection are the show's four main stars. Better still is the film's tagline: "New Model. Original Parts". Short, sweet and to the point, the poster should grab the attention to the fans of the original film.
