New Pitch Perfect 2 Images Feature Familiar Faces and New Additions

20 November 2014 3:39 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Earlier this morning, Universal released the first trailer for the upcoming musical comedy Pitch Perfect 2 and it was kind of fantastic.  The follow-up looks to be every bit as fun and surprising as the first film, and it has Elizabeth Banks in the director’s chair to boot.  Continuing on with today’s festivities, Universal has released a batch of new Pitch Perfect 2 images from the film, which reveal what Adam Devine’s Bumper has been up to since the first movie (hanging with Joe Lo Truglio, of course) and also give us a look at the Barden Bellas’ new addition Hailee Steinfeld.  I’d go so far as to say that the first movie was the most entertaining movie I saw in theaters in 2012, so I’m fairly excited for this one. Check out the new Pitch Perfect 2 images after the jump.  The film also stars Anna Kendrick, »

They’re Back, Pitches! First Poster For ‘Pitch Perfect 2′

19 November 2014 11:41 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

To think it was all those years ago, well 2012, that Pitch Perfect became the surprise smash-hit for a top class cast with a unique approach, singing in the spirit of Glee and similar but bringing with a great sense of humour and a pretty impressive narrative play – I think it had a lot to do with the awesome Anna Kendrick.

It’s great to have them back for Pitch Perfect 2 and we saw that cast photo with a whole host returning and reuniting, plus news of newcomers and the rest of the newcomers right here. There’s not too much news on what to expect, bar the singing of course, but we’re sure it’s a whole host of feel good that follows Fat Amy and Beca through their senior year at Barden University.

Pitch Perfect 2 is directed by Elizabeth Banks and stars the aforementioned Kendrick, plus Rebel Wilson, »

The Barden Bellas Are Back In First Image For Musical Sequel Pitch Perfect 2

19 November 2014 10:03 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

To label 2012’s Pitch Perfect as a cult classic is somewhat of an understatement. Pulling in close to $120 million on a budget of $17 million, the musical comedy was a bona fide hit, so it should come as no surprise that Universal was eager to get the ball rolling on a sequel. And today, we have our first look at that follow-up in question thanks to Entertainment Weekly, with returning stars Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, and Brittany Snow adorning this week’s cover for Pitch Perfect 2.

The sequel will see Elizabeth Banks step up from actress/producer to director, as The Hunger Games star has been brought onboard to replace Jason Moore from the first film. Speaking to EW, the actress-turned-filmmaker poked fun at the task in front of her.

“This is the stupidest idea I’ve ever had,” she jokes during a break in shooting. “My first movie is »

Please don't stop the music!

While we're still singing a cappella to the first film's soundtrack, Pitch Perfect 2 is well underway! We recently caught up with Elizabeth Banks – who produced and appeared in the first film, and is directing the sequel – and she told us just how proud she is of the franchise. "It's like my little baby," she told Et.

"There are not many [females] getting to direct films," she continued, "and to do one about a lot of great women is really important to me."

In celebration of Banks' pride and joy, we're breaking down five things you didn't know about the cast.

Elizabeth Banks talks about Pitch Perfect 2

22 September 2014 1:17 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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, »

Pentatonix Will Take On The Barden Bellas In Pitch Perfect 2

24 June 2014 10:11 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

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 »

Skylar Astin Officially In For Pitch Perfect 2

22 May 2014 1:26 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With less than a year to go until Pitch Perfect 2, the hotly anticipated sequel to Universal’s 2012 hit a capella comedy, hits theaters, we’ve been hearing a lot about the project over the past few weeks. Most recently, Sons of Anarchy star Katey Sagal joined the cast, playing the on-screen mother of another new cast member, Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld. Now, it’s been announced that Skylar Astin, one of Pitch Perfect‘s breakout actors, will be returning for the follow-up.

Astin played Jesse, the love interest of protagonist Beca (Anna Kendrick), in Pitch Perfect. A member of Barden University’s male a capella group The Treblemakers, Jesse originally came into contact with Beca as a singing rival, considering that The Treblemakers often competed against Beca’s all-female group, the Barden Bellas. Sparks flew between the two, and their blossoming romance was one of the most well-received plotlines in the original film. »
