  • Pitch Perfect was a plucky little musical comedy from 2012 that followed the adventures of an all-female college a cappella group. It only made $65 million at the domestic box office, but it has since taken on more fans thanks to endearing characters, enduring humor, and a popular soundtrack. These new fans came out in droves this past weekend, when Pitch Perfect 2 opened to $70 million, more than the original did in its entire run.

  • The Avengers is just about the biggest movie franchise in the world. Movies starring the individual members do big business, but when they team up, they make an immediate impact on the all-time box office records. In other words, The Avengers: Age of Ultron is going to get everybody's money no matter what I say. But I actually have some good things to say.
