Pitch Perfect is easily my favorite movie of 2012. No joke, it’s on my top ten list for the year, though it should be much higher ranked in retrospect, as there was a stretch of ten days after it came out on DVD where I watched it at least once a day, and my views probably topped 30 throughout the rest of the year. So, as you probably guessed, I’m rather excited for the upcoming Pitch Perfect 2. Who expected competitive college a capella to be my jam? But now the first trailer is here, and I apologize in advance for the long periods where I disappear for days at a time and just watch this.
All the major players are back, including Beca (Anna Kendrick) and Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson), along with new additions like Hailee Steinfeld from True Grit and Katy Sagal from Married…With Children and Futurama. This time around the Barden Bellas are headed to…wait for it…the a capella world championships, which only go down every four years and are like the aca-lympics. There’s all kinds of Eurotrah to deal with, the Treblemakers are on the scene, you’ve got secret vocal throwdowns, and, for some reason, Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews shows up. I don’t know why, but damn I’m excited to find out.
Pitch Perfect 2 opens everywhere May 15, 2015. Enjoy, and check out the new poster as well.
