Young adults at a cabin in the middle of nowhere are a big attraction for alien abduction.
From IFC Midnight, the Vicious Brothers present a sci-fi horror using the common alien abduction folklore and legends in “Extraterrestrial.”
Here’s the synopsis:
Still reeling from her parents divorce, April (Brittany Allen) is dragged back to the vacation cabin she spent fond summers at as a child accompanied by a group of friends. Her trip down memory lane takes a dramatic and terrifying turn when a fireball descends from the sky and explodes in the nearby woods. Lead by her boyfriend, played by Freddie Stroma (Harry Potter & The Half Blooded Prince, Pitch Perfect), the group venture out toward the crash site and discover the remnants of a ship from another planet along with footprints that suggest its alien occupants are still alive. The college friends soon find themselves caught in the middle »

Clash of the twitter threads. I recently started muting words on twitter on subjects I just had no interest in hearing about anymore and in some cases never did despite the rest of the world's inexplicably insatiable interest (my timeline is blessedly "Kardashian" free - you should try it! I'm missing nothing) and I've been so much happier.
Twitter is still a colossal time sucker in some ways but it keeps the pop culture conversation lively and my favorite thing about it is hearing smart people say amusing things that I didn't think to say - that I felt but never put into words (like the first tweet below). Anyway, here are a dozen or so tweets that amused or edified. Just because it's fun to share them.
Really enjoyed A Most Violent Year. First film I've seen in ages where guns are actually treated as guns i.e. Incredibly Dangerous. »

Long have we waited. Our lands have been barren, our sleep fitful, our souls thirsting for what we have been promised. But hope may yet again have a life in our hearts, because the trailer for the Pitch Perfect sequel has been granted unto us. Aca-praise be.
Honestly, Pitch Perfect 2 is exactly the kind of movie where most of us know long before a trailer hits whether we're a yes or a no. (I'm a yes because when I saw the first one, it was at a three-dollar theater after a happy hour, and I was with resident Tfe ray of sunshine Anne Marie. Five-star experience, would recommend.)
That said, the trailer calls irresistably for our scrutiny. Excited to join our acappella brethren and sistren for an evening of good/clean/goof fun featuring extensive cameos from the Top 40 of our recent past? Hop on board.

It started out as a small movie about an all-female singing group, but not long after Pitch Perfect hit theaters it became clear this one was going to take on a life of its own. The film became an instant fan favorite, growing in popularity once it arrived on home video, and of course that meant a sequel wouldn't be too far away. Now we have the first trailer for Pitch Perfect 2, due in theaters on May 15, 2015, and... well, they crushed it. Check it... The Bellas are most definitely back, and this time they're going global. Even better... the female-driven sequel is also being directed by a woman, with star Elizabeth Banks stepping behind the camera for her big debut. Starring Anna Kendrick, Skylar Astin, Rebel Wilson, Adam DeVine, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow...

Earlier today, Universal Pictures dropped the very first movie trailer (below) for their upcoming "Pitch Perfect 2" comedy flick, and it gives us a new look at all of our adorable Barden Bellas as they take on a new acapella singing challenge on the international stage, and it doesn't look like they get treated very well by their competition. They get called losers, and get heavily made fun of. There's also a ton of great comedy scenes, and more. Check it out,below. The movie stars: Brittany Snow, Anna Kendrick, Katey Sagal, Anna Camp, Rebel Wilson, Alexis Knapp, Adam DeVine, Hailee Steinfeld, Ester Dean, Kelley Jakle and Hana Mae Lee. The initial press release for the film, reads like this: "The Barden Bellas are back in "Pitch Perfect 2," the follow-up to summer 2012’s smash hit.

It's a good week to be a Pitch Perfect fan, what with the trailer for Pitch Perfect 2 finally dropping (not to mention the awesome poster), and things are about to get a lot better if you love Fat Amy and the gang or know someone who does. We've gathered some aca-awesome gifts for the Pitch Perfect superfan for this holiday season, featuring stuff with the best quotes and a DVD set and soundtrack they probably don't have yet. »
The Barden Bellas are back — ready to wreak harmonious havoc on any and all a cappella challengers in the new trailer for Pitch Perfect 2. While the clip opens with a somber, aching rendition of "Cups" — the breakout track from the first movie — things quickly lighten up thanks to a good ol' fashioned fart joke.
This time around Anna Kendrick and Co. find themselves competing in the World Championships of A Capella, an Olympic-style competition that no American team has ever won. Along with some trash-talking Germans who speak eight »
Last night saw the debut of the first poster for the follow-up to the superb aca-comedy Pitch Perfect, and now just 24 hours later, we can bring you the first trailer for the sequel, which is due next summer.

As a large, bearded man whose wardrobe consists of many hooded sweatshirts and whose primary occupation includes typing words into the void, I’m not ashamed of many things. I’m certainly not ashamed of my unabashed love for Pitch Perfect, the 2012 musical comedy about the highly competitive world of collegiate acapella. It starred the adorable Anna Kendrick alongside a host of comedic and musical talents such as Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson and that guy from Workaholics whose name I always get confused with the guy from Maroon 5 (Adam DeVine). If you’ve seen the first film, you know that it’s about as infectious and fun as any movie we, the collective of moviegoers, have seen in the last half decade. And now there’s making a sequel. As a teenaged girl might say, Squeee!! The first Pitch Perfect 2 trailer is now online following a debut at a quote-a-long event in Los Angeles last »

Pitch Perfect surprised audiences when it initially released and garnered a following of those who wouldn't normally be into such movies. As such fans have bene eager to see what's going on with Pitch Perfect 2, and the first full trailer for the film is finally here to break it down.
I'm going to apologize for the overly punny headline, but come on, that's too easy to resist! Regardless, the trailer for Pitch Perfect 2 is here, and it's pretty damn good:
The scale of the film's story is obviously bigger, as their singing group is now joining the world stage. While that's all well and good, the trailer makes it clear that the little moments will be the things to remember (much like with the first film), as there are certainly elements of emotion and character growth sprinkled in there. The trailer makes little mention of some of the newer characters, »

The gang’s all here! All the Bellas — Beca Mitchell (Anna Kendrick), Aubrey Posen (Anna Camp), Chloe Beale (Brittany Snow), Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson), Cynthia-Rose Adams (Ester Dean), Stacie Conrad (Alexis Knapp), Lily Onakuramara (Hana Mae Lee), and Jessica (Kelly Alice Jakle) — return to go from national to international competition in the “Pitch Perfect” sequel. A few new faces will be joining the Bellas as well: Hailee Steinfeld and Chrissie Fit. In a non-a capella roll, “Sons of Anarchy” star Katey Sagal will play Steinfeld's mom. The sequel picks up three years after the last movie. The Bellas have been decimating the collegiate competition, but after an unknown monkey wrench prevents them from entering college-level tournaments the ladies take their brand to the world of professional a capella competition. Pitch please! The Bellas are back in theaters 5.15.15. Exclusive new trailer tomorrow! #PitchPerfect2 pic.twitter.com/NBEkVjD2uW — #PitchPerfect2 (@PitchPerfect) November »

Though the trailer starts off with a slowed-down reprise of Anna Kendrick’s “Cups” (“When I’m Gone”), it picks up halfway through, teasing enough riff offs and music-related puns to get you psyched for another two hours with Kendrick, Brittany Snow – node-free? – and the rest of the Barden Bellas.
In terms of new cast members, Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit) joins the Bellas as their new recruit, andDavid Cross(Arrested Development) appears to take over the role of emcee from now-director Elizabeth Banks andChristopher Guest regular John Michael Higgins. Eagle-eyed YouTube aficionados may also notice the welcome addition ofFlula Borg as the Bella’s foreign foe.
Oh, and aca-scuse me! It looks like even though Bumper Allen, the leader of the Treblemakers, »

The first Pitch Perfect was a pleasant surprise, and it's looking like lighting may strike twice with Pitch Perfect 2. The first trailer for the sequel, which sees the original's producer and co-star Elisabeth Banks take on directing duties, has hit and it shows off a plot very reminiscent of kids sports movies with the Barden Bellas (who include a returning Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, and new comer Hailee Stanfield) entering the world a ccapella championships (they even take on their evil, efficient German counterparts). The humour and music that made the original so enjoyable returns, with the trailer packing in some genuine laughs. Check it out below. Released: 15th May 2015 »

"She actually speaks eight languages, but 'loser' is not one of them." Following last night's debut for only the most hardcore Barden Bella fans in cities across the country, the first trailer for the anticipated music-infused comedy sequel Pitch Perfect 2 has arrived, and it's aca-awesome. Things start off nice and sweet, but then get serious as the Bellas (who now have their own sorority house of sorts) strive to compete in the World Championships of A Capella, which only happens every four years. It's basically the Olympics of music made with mouths. Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and the whole gang are back, pitches! Watch! Here's the first trailer for Elizabeth Banks' Pitch Perfect 2 from The Ellen Show: Pitch Perfect 2 is directed by Elizabeth Banks (star of Pitch Perfect, making her feature directorial debut) and written by Kay Cannon (Pitch Perfect, "30 Rock," "New Girl") This time the Barden Bellas (Anna Kendrick, »

Universal Pictures just released the very first Pitch Perfect 2 trailer and it looks as though the musical comedy sequel could be another big winner. Not only did the first film turn out to be a surprise hit and claim over $113 million at the worldwide box office, but it also helped Anna Kendrick's rendition of "Cups" hit #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and wound up amassing such an enthusiastic following that Universal decided to bring the original film back to theaters in sing-along format. As someone who's watched Pitch Perfect time and time again, there's a lot riding on the sequel and based on this first look at the film, actress/producer-turned-first time feature director Elizabeth Banks may have nailed it. Forget the national college a cappella competition. In Pitch Perfect 2 it's all about the world championship of a cappella. We've got familiar songs and faces, "Cups" is still »
