The Hangover Part II Earns $30 Million on Opening Day

The critics of the world tried their best to dissuade audiences from seeing The Hangover Part II, but it seems no one listened. After gobbling up $10.4 million from midnight showings on Thursday, the Todd Phillips-directed sequel earned another $20 million to push its opening day tally to $30 million. That puts the film on pace to earn $125 million through Memorial Day. It took the first film 18 days to reach that mark in 2009. [Deadline]
