Up next is the film that has been topping the "BuzzJack Hype Chart" for a while now and it's, of course 'PITCH PERFECT 2'!





How do we think this one will do on it's opening weekend? A few things you may need to consider before predicting...

- The first film in the franchise opened to 947,058 in the UK and $5,149,433 in the US.
- It was a BIG sleeper hit as (despite it's relatively weak openings) it has gone on to gross well over $110m WW!
- It seems to have a big cult following.
- Whenever they've released a trailer for the film, it's gone on to be a big Social Networking trend!

Will all of this translate into a big second film for them? Or are we expecting it to flop on it's behind?

I am going to predict big and go for...

Around $27.3m for the US and around 2.8m for the UK!

It would not surprise me if they actually did a lot more though!

Don't want to over-estimate this based on Buzzjack hype and how much of a success 'Cups' was in the US (although it was a big thing on social media in the UK too!), but I think it can clear the 4m mark in the UK, something like 4.2m.

And $25m in the US.

US | $27.5M
UK | 2.1M

Something tells me it won't have a HUGE opening in the UK, I would like it to though...

That is huge for a film like this! A big hit for a film that's not a blockbuster ('Avengers'/'Fast & Furious'/'Harry Potter' etc..) usually ranges from 2m - 4m!

I think it will do really well first weekend but drop off really quickly due to shit reviews ala 50 Shades Of Grey. I dunno why, I just have a feeling it'll be shit but I am hoping to be proved wrong.

Can you change my US prediction to $40m+ please (I predicted $25m - $29.99m)? I'm going to keep my UK prediction of 2.8m!
