LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Hollywood's hangover is a lot bigger the second time around.
"The Hangover Part II" hauled in $86.5 million in its first weekend, nearly twice the business the original blockbuster comedy did in its debut two years ago, according to studio estimates Sunday.
In its first four days since opening Thursday, the Warner Bros. sequel has taken in $118.1 million. The movie is on track to finish the long Memorial Day weekend with about $140 million in the bank.
The first "Hangover" did not top $100 million until its second weekend. The movie went on to gross $277 million domestically.
DreamWorks Animation's "Kung Fu Panda 2" opened solidly with a $48 million weekend, though it came in well below the $60.2 million debut of the first installment three years ago.
