** It's also a new high for music-based films. Not only is it the biggest ever opening for a live-action musical (past ''Film/HighSchoolMusical 3''[='=]s $42 million), but also the biggest opening for a film about music in general (past ''Film/EightMile'''s $51 million) and the biggest opening for any musical, live-action or animated (ahead of ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'''s $67 million -- yes, it beat out what is considered the biggest cultural phenomenon of a movie this decade). Plus, it appears as if it will take down the all-time record for highest grossing live-action musical; one that has stood for nearly ''thirty-seven years'': the $189 million take of ''Film/{{Grease}}.''

to:

* Das Sound Machine doing an epic rendition of Muse's "Uprising" at the car showshow.
* Real-life example: The film opening to a whopping ''$70 million dollars'' in its first week is epic for so many reasons (and broken records):
** The film made more money in its first week than its predecessor did in its entire run ($65 million). Only one other movie has ever accomplished this rare feat: ''Film/AustinPowers: The Spy Who Shagged Me'', which opened to $55 million versus the $54 million lifetime gross of the first film. In fact, ''Pitch Perfect 2'' is even ''further'' ahead of its predecessor than ''Powers'' is.
** Elizabeth Banks nearly made history, as the film just missed becoming the highest-opening directorial debut of all time, only losing out by a few thousand dollars to Robert Stromberg's ''Film/{{Maleficent}}.''
** Banks also has the second highest opening for a female director of all time, beaten out only by the $85 million opening of Sam Taylor-Johnson's ''Film/FiftyShadesOfGrey''. However, ''Pitch Perfect 2'' is looking to be far less frontloaded and is expected to soar past ''Grey'''s $166 million final total. In fact, if it holds up, Banks' film could become the highest grossing female-directed movie of all time, ahead of the $220 million ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks: The Squeakquel'' directed by Betty Thomas.
** This is notable as a rare film directed by someone primarily known as an actor. While it's not expected to soar to the same heights as Mel Gibson's "Passion of the Christ" or Clint Eastwood's "American Sniper", it did break a record as a self-directed movie. The film shattered the $54 million opening weekend record of Creator/SethMacFarlane's ''Film/{{Ted}}'' and should also make a play to break its $219 million lifetime gross record.
** It's also a new high for music-based films. Not only is it the biggest ever opening for a live-action musical (past ''Film/HighSchoolMusical 3'''s $42 million), but also the biggest opening for a film about music in general (past ''Film/EightMile'''s $51 million) and the biggest opening for any musical, live-action or animated (ahead of ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'''s $67 million -- yes, it beat out what is considered the biggest cultural phenomenon of a movie this decade). Plus, it appears as if it will take down the all-time record for highest grossing live-action musical; one that has stood for nearly ''thirty-seven years'': the $189 million take of ''Film/{{Grease}}.''
** How does it compare to other comedies? Only the third biggest ever (behind the third ''Austin Powers'' and second ''Hangover.")
** Now, let's talk about the significance of female-targeted films. How many films have opened as big as ''Pitch Perfect 2'' with minimal support from male audiences (therefore, films like ''Film/TheHungerGames'' and ''Film/{{Divergent}}'' don't count): Only four out of the five ''Series/{{Twilight}}'' films and ''Fifty Shades of Grey.'' The only other true chick-flick breakout this decade? ''Film/TheFaultInOurStars.''
** New career high grosses are likely to be set for actors such as Hailee Steinfeld (past ''True Grit'') and Rebel Wilson (''Night at the Museum 3''). And when Anna Kendrick's minor role in the ''Twilight'' movies is taken out of the equation, she'll be ahead of her current record (''Into The Woods'') by nearly $100 million.
** Let's not forget about how it knocked '''''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron''''' out of the top spot. With ''ease.'' Even if ''Avengers'' didn't get its opening weekend and legs dampened by not-so-great word-of-mouth and the Mayweather/Pacquiao match, amongst other things, $70 million probably still would've been an easy #1 for ''Pitch Perfect.''
** Last but not least, the above facts only cover its performance in North America. While this looks to be a rare movie whose domestic gross beats out its international earnings, we can't count out any further historic achievements.

** Both awesome and funny? Lilly not singing at all, but cocking and shooting a "air" shotgun at the Treble Makers. (Especially when you take into account the truly disturbing things she mumbles.)
