Box Office: ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ Snags Aca-Okay $4.6M Thursday

Pitch Perfect 2 got off to a solid start this weekend with $4.6 million in Thursday previews. That’s almost more than the entire $5.1m debut weekend of the first Pitch Perfect back in September of 2012, with the caveat that said debut took place in just 335 theaters. Anyway, Pitch Perfect 2 is the sequel to the 2012 sleeper smash, which made $113m worldwide, sold $101m worth of Blus and DVDs, and scored a platinum soundtrack all on a budget of $17m. The sequel brings pretty much everyone back, including stars Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson while co-star and producer Elisabeth Banks directs this time around. The big addition to the cast this time around is Hailee Steinfeld of True Grit fame. The $29m sequel comes courtesy of Gold Circle and Universal/Comcast Corp.
