Studio estimates released Monday show “The Hangover Part II” set a new high for comedy debuts with $105.8 million over the long Memorial Day weekend.

The blockbuster sequel also led Hollywood to a new revenue record of around $280 million for the holiday weekend.

The movie raised its domestic haul to $137.4 million since opening Thursday, nearly half the business 2009’s “The Hangover” did over its entire run.

Opening at No. 2 behind “The Hangover Part II” was another sequel, the animated adventure “Kung Fu Panda 2,” with $62.2 million. “Kung Fu Panda 2” has pulled in $68 million domestically since its Thursday debut.

Slipping to No. 3 with $50.4 million was “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.”
