LINDSEY BAHR, Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) – The ladies of “Pitch Perfect 2” hit all the right notes opening weekend, amassing a huge $70.3 million debut, according to Rentrak estimates Sunday.

The Elizabeth Banks-directed sequel to the 2012 sleeper hit and video on demand phenomenon cost Universal Pictures only $29 million to produce. The first film, however, grossed only $65 million domestically across its entire run.

George Miller’s critically acclaimed “Mad Max: Fury Road” claimed a distant second place in its debut weekend with a solid and expected $44.4 million. The high-octane film cost a reported $150 million to make and stars Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy.

Holdovers “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” ”Hot Pursuit,” and “Furious 7” claimed the rest of the spots in the top five.pitch perfect 2 box office
