Pitch Perfect 2 breaks the $70M mark for its amazing opening weekend!


Box Office: ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ Outsings ‘Mad Max’ With Stunning $70.3M Debut

The Pitches are back in a big way.

Scoring one of the top openings of all time for a non-tentpole, Elizabeth Banks‘ Pitch Perfect 2launched to a massive $70.3 million at the North American box office, thanks to ardent female fans. And in only three days, it’s earned back more than twice its $29 million budget — and more than the first Pitch Perfect grossed in its entire domestic run ($65 million).

Overseas, Pitch Perfect 2 debuted to an equally stellar $38.1 million from 29 markets for a world total of $108.4 million, just shy of the $115 million earned all in by the original movie.


Appealing heavily to younger femmes, Pitch Perfect 2 marks the feature directorial debut of Banks and stars Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Hailee Steinfeld. Steinfeld is a new addition and stands to inherit the franchise. In terms of fellow female-driven films, the sequel opened just ahead of the first Twilight and Maleficent, both of which launched to roughly $69 million.

Three-quarters of ticket buyers were female, while 62 percent were under the age of 25, a statistic rarely seen. Pitch Perfect 2 also marks the highest domestic opening ever for a first-time director.

Pitch Perfect 2 earned an A- CinemaScore from audiences, as well as good reviews from many critics. Fury Road is an all-out hit among reviewers, sporting a 98 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, while audiences gave it a B+. Heading into the weekend, tracking suggested both films would open in the $40 million range.


Pitch Perfect 2 debuted in 27 territories, topping the box office in the U.K. and Ireland, Austria, Germany, Netherlands, Slovenia, South Africa, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Taiwan.
