This should cause for some either acca-awkward moments or mad fury rage-filled fights on date nights! What movie should a couple go see? “Pitch Perfect 2”, the sequel to the catchy surprise singing girl-power hit movie? Or the high-octane visual masterpiece that has been 30 years in the making “Mad Max: Fury Road”? If the early box office reports are any indication…..it seems the women are winning kicking all sorts of ass at the movies as well!
“Pitch Perfect 2″ with Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp and Skylar Astin are far surpassing expectations with a projected $64 million weekend! That is putting the singing girl group at more than $20 million ahead of “Mad Max: Fury Road,” which should end up at around $41 million when the weekend is over.
The mighty combo finally toppled “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” which ruled the last two frames and should still see a solid $37 million this weekend.
It does help Pitch Perfect 2 that it is only a PG-13 movie while Mad Max with Tom Hardy has to battle the much lesser R-rating crowds. Teen-girls and female money is one of the strongest markets in the industry as “50 Shades of Grey” has also shown. It is no surprise the girls from Pitch Perfect have perfectly sang and tapped their way nicely into that market. This battle is far from over since the word of mouth is just getting out on which movies have the best overall audience satisfaction.
