Four months into 2011, the movie business finally has the year's first huge global hit. Universal's "Fast Five" debuted to an estimated $83.6 million domestically this weekend, more than doubling up on the year's previous best start ($39.2 million for Fox's "Rio") and shattering Universal's previous best opening ($72.1 million for "The Lost World: Jurassic Park").

The movie overperformed pre-release estimates in the $60 million to $70 million range, while leading the previously ice-cold domestic box office to a 54 percent uptick over the same weekend last year. With $45.3 million playing at 3,211 international playdates this weekend, "Fast Five" now has a cumulative worldwide total of $165 million. The film was shot for $125 million after tax breaks.

The success of "Fast Five" overshadowed two other disappointing debuts from smaller films: Disney's "Prom" opened to only $5 million, widely missing projections closer to $10 million; and Weinstein's long-gestating 3D kiddie film "Hoodwinked Too!" endured a similar fate, grossing just $4.1 million.

Here's how the top 10 finished:

"Fast Five"  $83.6 million
"Rio" $14.4 million
"Madea's Big Happy Family"  $10.1 million
"Water for Elephants"  $9.1 million
"Prom"  $5 million
"Hoodwinked Too!"  $4.1 million
"Soul Surfer"  $3.3 million
"Insidious"  $2.8 million
"Source Code"  $2.5 million
"Hop"  $2.5 million
