OFF 2 FAST START
Vin Diesel is no doubt nursing a bruised ego today. The street-racing sequel 2 Fast 2 Furious which some predicted would tank sans Diesel fuel sped to No. 1 at the box office with $52.1 million. The original pic grossed $40.1 million in its opening weekend in 2001. That bumped Disney's Finding Nemo to second place with a still-potent $45.8 million. The animated smash's 10-day total stands at $143.3 million. Rounding out the top five: Bruce Almighty (No. 3 with $21.7 million), The Italian Job (No. 4 with $13.3 million) and The Matrix Reloaded (No. 5 with $9.1 million).
