Nobody thought Pitch Perfect 2 would be a flop, but it's far exceeding expectations on its opening weekend. The aca-sequel is topping big-budget critical darling (yup) Mad Max: Fury Road. This is good news for female-driven films, and one directed by Elizabeth Banks to boot.

Pitch Perfect 2 is looking to hit $64 million by the end of the weekend, with Mad Max at $41 million. Slot number three goes to The Avengers: Age of Ultron which is still pulling in $37 million. That franchise installment hit $1 billion worldwide yesterday.
