Box Office: Pitch Perfect 2 Outruns Mad Max: Fury Road At Weekend Box Office
The return of the Road Warrior was no match for the return of the Bellas at this weekend's box office.
While Pitch Perfect 2 opened far ahead of Mad Max: Fury Road, both films still grossed over $40 million in their respective North American debuts.
Pitch Perfect 2 bowed with an estimated $70.3 million for first place, knocking previous champ Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron down to third place with $38.8 million. Pitch Perfect 2's opening haul is more than what the 2012 original made during its entire domestic theatrical run ($65 million).
This also marks the biggest opening ever for a first time feature director (Elizabeth Banks) as well as the second biggest debut for a female-directed movie behind Fifty Shades of Grey.
Mad Max: Fury Road opened in second place with $44.4 million. That's a solid showing for a franchise whose last installment came out 30 years ago. However, given the film's hefty price tag (reportedly between $150-220 million) and the studio's hopes for revving up an old franchise, Mad Max: Fury Road still has a lot of ground to make up to not be considered a commercial disappointment. Additionally, the George Miller-directed film opened to an estimated $65 million in 68 international markets.
Avengers: Age of Ultron's current domestic tally is $372 million, and it has just passed $1 billion at the worldwide box office.
Here are the weekend estimates via Rentrak:
1. Pitch Perfect 2 $70.3 million
2. Mad Max: Fury Road $44.4 million
3. Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron $38.8 million
4. Hot Pursuit $5.8 million
5. Furious 7 $3.6 million

8. Home $2.7 million
9. Ex Machina $2.1 million
10. Far From the Madding Crowd $1.3 million
