Scoring one of the top openings of all time for a non-tentpole, Elizabeth Banks’ Pitch Perfect 2 launched to a massive $70.3 million at the North American box office, thanks to ardent female fans. And in only three days, it’s earned back more than twice its $29 million budget — and more than the first Pitch Perfect grossed in its entire domestic run ($65 million).

Overseas, Pitch Perfect 2 debuted to an equally stellar $38.1 million from 29 markets for a world total of $108.4 million, just shy of the $115 million earned all in by the original movie.

In North America, the Universal film easily overshadowed George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road in terms of sheer grosses, even if Fury Road opened to a respectable $44.4 million for an R-rated film. Together, the two movies helped deliver the biggest pre-Memorial Day weekend of all time ($183.4 million).

Internationally, Fury Road beat Pitch Perfect 2 overall with $65 million from 68 markets, putting its global debut at $109.4 million.

Males made up the vast majority of Mad Max’s audience domestically, while 46 percent were under the age of 25. (That’s not a bad turnout for a sequel to a film that opened in 1980.) The issue Fury Road faces is that it cost at least $150 million to make. Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow partnered on the film, starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron.

Nearly nine years ago, Nicholas Hoult gave a series of interviews. They all followed a similar template: remember the kooky, pudding-bowl kid from About a Boy? He’s grown up, got hot and is about to star in some new series called Skins. He’s also, most pointed out, very amiable and polite, at 17 still a little gauche beneath the cheekbones – a nice Wokingham lad.

I wrote one of these. I remember Hoult was ever so excited to have just bought a moped, which he used to get to and from sixth form college. His mum – who had packed him cheese and ham sandwiches to take along for the day – was more sceptical.

So it’s hard to imagine the unhappiness of Mrs Hoult after her son was cast in Mad Max: Fury Road – eight months in the Namibian desert hanging off exploding lorries, told not to move lest his head come off. The watchword of George Miller’s movie is verisimilitude; CGI sneered at for all but tweaks. As critics have observed, the fear on Hoult’s face is pretty convincing.

In fact, the experience helped exorcise his petrolphilia. Just as gearheads round the world get revved up over the rigs, he says his motoring mania is behind him. “I’ve grown out of it. OK: a great car does have a little bit of a soul to it. There can be something special about the noise of it. But I’m no longer obsessed.”
