LOS ANGELES - "Fast & Furious 6" raced to the top of a record-breaking weekend at North American theaters, and the sixth installment in the street-racing franchise also delivered a turbo-charged performance overseas.

Hollywood.com reports that the film debuted atop the holiday weekend box office, collecting $117 million domestically and $158 million internationally - the biggest opening yet for a Universal Pictures release.

Ticket tallies over the four-day weekend also set a Memorial Day record with $314.2 million.

More than a third of the take belonged to "Fast & Furious 6" which stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Michelle Rodriguez, Dwayne Johnson and an international supporting cast. The film follows the muscle-car crew as they join with police in a worldwide hunt for a terrorist, battling a plane and a tank along the way.
