    Daymm, Pitch Perfect 2 - grosses $70M almost as much as Avengers and Mad Max combined. Sofia and Reese are weak in 4th place. The over 40 crowd loses to younger women.

    How many times did Howard see this movie????
    Anna Kendrick is mighty fine.:wub:

    Going into the weekend, it was looking like a tight race between Universal’s comedy sequel Pitch Perfect 2 and George Miller’s return to action with Mad Max: Fury Road, but once estimates came in for Friday, it was obvious that Pitch Perfect 2 was going to win the weekend by a large margin… which it did.

    Once again starring Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Adam DeVine, Ester Dean and Elizabeth Banks, who made her feature film directorial debut with the sequel, Pitch Perfect 2 kicked off its weekend with $4.6 million in Thursday previews, which helped add to its opening day take of $27.8 million. While it was thought from that Friday the movie would exceed $60 million, it was reported Sunday that it had grossed an estimated $70.3 million for the weekend, which is $5 million more than the original movie grossed in its entire theatrical run. With an “A-” CinemaScore from its 75% female audience with 62% under the age of 25 is a good sign for the movie’s legs over the next few weeks, although young women tend to rush out to see movies they want to see opening weekend as seen by previous young adult hits like “The Twilight Saga” and “The Hunger Games” films, so we’ll have to see if this ends up over $200 million or below.

    I think it's the best reviewed movie of the year so far. I've got kids, so getting out of the house to see movies is a bit tougher - but I'll definitely see it as soon as it comes out on VOD.

    The first Pitch Perfect was fun and had a dark sense of humor; I'm starting to grow a little sweet on Ms. Anna...

    I'm dying to see the new Mad Max. I can't believe Pitch Perfect not only garnered a second installment but beat Mad Max and Avengers.

    I thought the second one was less dark, but better overall. They found a way to still keep it fresh.

    Mad Max looks like a typical Hollywood festival of special effects. Perhaps there is nothing to distinguish Mad Max from every other effects-centered film. The one I don't get is the success of Fast and Furious 7.

    Gayest movie ever. After the first. Straight males over 11 have no business at this movie.
