Move over, “Sex and the City.” There’s a new R-rated movie with a woman-dominated cast that has taken your spot as the most popular female film.

The Hollywood Reporter reports that this summer’s comedy “Bridesmaids” is on track to earn $153.7 million, surpassing 2008’s “Sex and the City” at $152.6 million.

“Bridesmaids” also reached other firsts for Universal, becoming the company’s biggest romantic comedy ever.

For Judd Apatow, who produced the film, it has made the most money. Apatow’s previous films, “Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby” and “Knocked Up” earned $148.2 million and $148.8 million, respectively. This is his latest blockbuster.
