Default Re: 2013: The Re-Up (box office predictions) - Part 1

As much as it's an undeniable hit, I wonder if the Fast and Furious films have hit a certain ceiling, domestically at least, in terms of how much they can earn. Domestically, Fast and Furious Six only made about $30 million more than Fast Five. Maybe this is the fault of my own expectations, but with the near unanimous praise for Fast Five, seemingly bringing in a larger audience, and with an almost equal level of love for Six, I was predicting a significant bump, upwards of the $300 mil mark. Internationally, the sequel also added an additional $60 mil from Five, nothing to scoff at, but with the mammoth amount of growth for sequels nowadays in both domestic and international terms, I can't help but wonder if this series has reached its maximum potential.
