Who run the box office? Girls

What the top grossing movies of the weekend have critics saying about the future of women in Hollywood


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.
