1 minute read

Musical comedy Pitch Perfect 2 earned more than $70 million to take the top spot at the box office this weekend, handily beating Mad Max: Fury Road.

Estimates released by box office tracker Rentrak show the Elizabeth Banks-directed sequel has already eclipsed the entire $65 million box office run of the original film in 2012. Mad Max: Fury Road, the first movie in the franchise in 30 years, performed as analysts expected and marked the best opening ever for director George Miller, Deadline reports, bringing in $44.4 million.

Avengers: Age Of Ultron, Hot Pursuit and Furious 7 earned $38.8 million, $5.8 million and $3.6 million, respectively, to round out the top five.
