Pitch Perfect swept the nation when it came out in 2012, resulting in critical praise, $113 million worldwide, and even a successful single from Anna Kendrick called Cups, so when a sequel was announced fans sang their little hearts out.
Yahoo Movies talked to producer and co-star of the first movie Elizabeth Banks about the upcoming Pitch Perfect 2, which will see her making her feature directorial debut. Banks said that movie takes place during the senior year for the Bellas, who are coming up to gradutation:
“They’re coming to the end of their time as Bellas and figuring out how to sort of leave the nest and the comfort of each other’s friendship and figure out what they’re going to do with the rest of their lives.”
Banks also promised cameos from actual Acapella groups Pentatonix, the Filharmonic, and Penn Masala: “I can confirm all are in the movie, »

Sony Pictures Home Entertainment announced the DVD release of Grace: The Possession, which is neither a sequel to Grace or The Possession. Shooting took place last summer on the film under the direction of Jeff Chan.
Fast plays Grace: a naive, beautiful, virginal college freshman trying to deal with campus culture and her outgoing new roommate. But when a terror takes over her body and unleashes chaos, Grace returns to the cold clutches of her severe grandmother (Lin Shaye) and the strict rules of the church.
The post Grace: The Possession is a Not a Sequel to Either of Those Films appeared first on Shock Till You Drop. »

Remember how the Maniac remake jolted the hell out of you by unfolding strictly through the eyes of a killer? Well, Grace: The Possession is taking the same route with possession. Read on for details.
From the Press Release
Just in time for Halloween, a producer of Sinister and executive producer of Insidious brings a chilling twist to the classic horror story when the terrifying Grace: The Possession debuts on DVD and Digital HD October 28th from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Alexia Fast (Jack Reacher) plays the title role of Grace, an 18-year-old Catholic girl who moves away to college, never having sipped alcohol, done drugs, or had sex. But something dark comes over her, and her purity is taken as she becomes possessed by demonic forces. The film offers audiences a unique first-person perspective of the possessed like never seen before. The cast also features Lin Shaye »

Whilst not quite sparse enough to be considered anomalies, British sci-fi thrillers are rare beasts. As such, you have to at least admire the ambition in Noel Clarke’s third directorial feature – titled The Anomaly – if not the execution.
Set in the near future, the Memento-inspired plot is centred on grizzled ex-soldier Ryan (Clarke), who wakes up sans-memory in the back of a van with a kidnapped boy. After 9 minutes and 47 seconds Ryan blacks out, only to reawaken several days later in a new location. This cycle keeps repeating itself, and each ten minute rebirth brings with it a new set of clues as to Ryan’s predicament.
The core idea at the heart of The Anomaly is a good one, and Simon Lewis’ potential laden script sets it up well. In the decidedly strong first act we’re just as bewildered as our protagonist, frantically trying to piece together what’s going on. »

If something doesn't feel quite right about British sci-fi thriller The Anomaly, it's because the script should have spent longer in development. As a director and producer (this time not a writer), Noel Clarke proves that you don't have to throw a lot of money at the screen to create the right atmosphere, but it takes more than a few nifty camera tricks and digital effects to draw an audience in.
Clarke also has the starring role, as Ryan, an apparent hostage who wakes up in the back of a van where a boy called Alex (Art Parkinson) is begging for his help. Ryan has no memory of how they got there and barely a grasp of his own identity, although judging by his skills in hand-to-hand combat, he's not your average civilian. »

Review by Andrew McArthur
Set in the future, a former-soldier Ryan (Clarke) wakes up holding a young boy captive, with no memory of how he got there. After nine minutes forty-seven seconds, he blacks out waking up several days later in a new location with a mysterious figure (Ian Somerhalder), until blacking out again. In these brief moments of consciousness it is up to Ryan to piece together his surroundings, until he gradually discovers a wider conspiracy featuring bio-technology and mind control.
The Anomaly finds Noel Clarke in an ambitious mood. Taking centre stage, and directing a feature for the third time, this is a science fiction film that demands concentration and works hard within its limits. And it opens really very strongly too. Clarke's character, Ryan, wakes up in the back of a van, with just minutes to work out what's happening. One quick escape later, and the mystery of the film gradually begins to unfold.
For we learn that Clarke's character here - coincidentally in a film not a million miles away from Edge Of Tomorrow in theme - is a man who has a small amount of time, before he drifts into unconsciousness, only to wake up somewhere else in the world, and sometimes much later on. So what's going on? Well, »
Four years after his last directorial outing 4321, Noel Clarke steps back into the director's chair for The Anomaly - a high-concept sci-fi thriller that star Ian Somerhalder has dubbed "The Bourne Identity meets Memento".
As if calling the shots wasn't demanding enough, Clarke also takes on the lead role, playing a soldier who only experiences consciousness for 9 minutes and 47 seconds at a time. It's dizzying for his protagonist, and for the audience along for the ride too. Digital Spy sat down with Clarke to discuss making the film, throwing in Doctor Who cameos and why he's still reaching for the stars.
I just really liked the fact that Simon had written something that could be quite high concept, but at the same »
The Anomaly focuses around traumatised ex-soldier Ryan (Clarke) who wakes up in the back of a van, alongside a kidnapped boy. Ryan helps him escape but when he finds a mask in his pocket he comes to an appalling realisation…. But there’s no time to act – after 9 minutes and 47 seconds of consciousness it all goes black.
What does this have to do with Ryan’s past as a patient at the experimental Medical Unit? Ryan has a lot of questions, and very little time to find any answers.

In the blisteringly hot mid-summer of 2013 HeyUGuys were whisked away to a warehouse in East London to see one of this summer’s big British films, Noel Clarke’s The Anomaly, be shot. As soon as we walked into the warehouse, all sunshine was lost, and we found ourselves in a garish corridor, deep reds from floor to wall, and windowed booths every other step. This, apparently, is part of a brothel set on the sci-fi film’s shoot, and is being used at this point to house crew and cast between takes in a bedroom just far enough away to barely hear the dialogue being shot, but the punches are clear. Just to check, I asked Noel Clarke if this is in any way a family film. “No, 100% no. Have you seen any of my films that are family films? Except maybe Fast Girls.”

Noel Clarke is back behind the camera again, after a brief hiatus (doing mostly acting), with the sci-fi actioner titled "The Anomaly," which he also stars in, alongside Luke Hemsworth and Ian Somerhalder. Shot in London and New York, Brian Cox and Alexis Knapp round out the cast of a film that follows a traumatized ex-soldier (played by Clarke) who wakes up in the back of a van, alongside a kidnapped boy. The soldier and the boy escape, but when he finds a mask in his pocket, he comes to an appalling realization…. but there’s no time to act.

It’s really only fitting that the most popular a capella group in America should land a role in the world’s most highly anticipated a capella comedy. That’s right – Pentatonix just locked down a supporting role in next year’s Pitch Perfect 2.
The five-person ensemble, which won a season of NBC’s The Sing-Off and found chart success soon after, will have a small role as a rival group to the Barden Bellas. It sounds like their part in Pitch Perfect 2 is more of a cameo than anything – the group spent just one day on the sequel’s Baton Rouge, Louisiana, set. Intriguingly, during their visit, members Scott Hoying, Mitch Grassi, Avi Kaplan, Kirstie Maldonado and Kevin Olusola got the full makeup and wardrobe treatment.
“We’re wearing some pretty interesting thing. You can definitely tell it’s the five of us, but what we’re »

Ryan has a lot of questions, and very little time to find any answers.

The Anomaly stars Ian Somerhalder (The Vampire Diaries, Lost), Noel Clarke (Star Trek into Darkness, Fast Girls), Brian Cox (The Bourne Ultimatum, Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Alexis Knapp (Pitch Perfect, Project X) and Luke Hemsworth in his first lead feature film role.
Pulling double-duty as star and director, British filmmaker Noel Clarke – who rose to fame through Kidulthood and Adulthood – is the driving force behind the upcoming sci-fi action film, The Anomaly, and we now have a new trailer to study for clues. Though Universal Pictures are handling the July 4 UK theatrical release, there is currently no sign of a foray into Us cinemas. This may be scheduled if the movie performs well with British audiences, however.
Clarke directs for the third time, here from a script by relative newcomer Simon Lewis. Co-starring Luke Hemsworth (older brother of Chris and Liam), Ian Somerhalder (The Vampire Diaries), Brian Cox (Red 2), and Alexis Knapp (Pitch Perfect), the tale plays out in both London and New York City. Following a former soldier (Clarke) who is continually ‘re-booted’ after 9 minutes and 47 seconds, he must uncover the truth about what is happening to him and why, before »
