Women don't get enough credit in Hollywood - but that could all soon change.
According to MTV, first-time director Elizabeth Banks and her squad of blockbuster heroines landed their flick, Pitch Perfect 2 the number one spot in the box office with gross sales of $70.3 million.
To put that into perspective, its prequel, Pitch Perfect brought in a lifetime domestic gross of $65 million. The second instalment toppled that figure in a single weekend.
No business like 'she' business
The female-dominated musical also came in octaves above contender Mad Max: Fury Road, which, interestingly, landed the second-top spot at the box office after receiving not-so-fury-inducing accolades for its feminism-centric storyline.
But both films are still strides away from ringing in revenues close to that of the penultimate femme flick of the year - Fifty Shades of Grey. Led by female director Sam Taylor-Johnson, it's grossed a whopping $600 million worldwide to date.
Fifty Shades of Pay might be more accurate.
