by BoxOffice Staff

Warner Bros. reports Mad Max: Fury Road held the top spot again on Wednesday with $2.32 million, off just 41 percent from the same day last week. In the process, the strongly received action flick crossed the $100 million domestic barrier as it now sits at $100.08 million, which is nearly 4 percent ahead of where Prometheus stood at the same point in its release cycle.

In the runner-up spot, Pitch Perfect 2 added $2.06 million yesterday for a 47 percent week-to-week drop. The hit comedy sequel has tallied $130.7 million domestically through 13 days of release, 34 percent ahead of Neighbors.

Disney's Tomorrowland claimed third place on Wednesday with $1.97 million. The Brad Bird-helmed adventure film has earned $47.56 million through its first six days, which is essentially on par with the $48.05 million six-day take of J.J. Abrams' Super 8 in 2011.

Avengers: Age of Ultron landed in fourth place yesterday, off 39 percent from last Wednesday. Its domestic take is now $414.75 million.

Filling out the top five, Poltergeist grossed $1.25 million yesterday. The horror remake's six-day tally is $29.36 million, about 4 percent less than 2013's Evil Dead remake through the same point.
