Box Office: ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ Crossing $100 Million Mark

Pitch Perfect 2” will cross the $100 million mark at the U.S. box office on Saturday.

This is yet another high note for the Universal comedy as it looks likely to edge out big-budget tentpole “Tomorrowland” at the Memorial Day weekend box office, with just north of $41 million. The “Pitch Perfect” sequel has an estimated $29 million pricetag, while Diseny’s “Tomorrowland” reportedly cost $180 million to produce.

Pitch Perfect 2” will surpass $125 million by the end of the four-day weekend.

The a cappella sequel launched in theaters last weekend to a surprise $69.2 million — more than the original movie grossed in total at the domestic box office ($65 million). This is the top musical opening and the second-biggest PG-13 comedy debut of all time.

For Elizabeth Banks, this marks the best debut for a first-time feature film director and is the second-highest grossing opening for a movie by a female director, behind Sam Taylor-Johnson, whose “Fifty Shades of Grey” launched to $85.2 million in February. Banks also stars in and co-produced the movie.

Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow and Anna Camp returned for the sequel, which also stars newcomers Hailee Steinfeld and Katey Sagal.
