One of the best feel good movies of the last couple of years,in this humble reviewers opinion, has to be Anna Kendrick movie “Pitch Perfect” and now we have the first Pitch Perfect 2 trailer. For those who haven’t seen Pitch Perfect the plot is based around the highly competitive world of collegiate a cappella and one outsiders journey on a highly entertaining path to find her place in that world.
The movie had a slow boil affect as many audiences came aware of the movie once it was released on home media and streaming sites. The appeal of the first movie,for me any way, was the mix of great characters and a great script. Each member of the cast brought something to the table with many of the guest stars leaving a lasting mark. This time Elizabeth Banks, Rebel Wilson, John Michael Higgins, Adam DeVine, Brittany Snow, and Anna Camp are joined by newcomers Hailee Steinfeld and Katey Sagal.
The plot this time would appear to revolve around a similar story as the first movie but if it ain’t broke why fix it. Although the first movie is loosely based on a true-ish story by Mickey Rapkin it hasn’t been confirmed yet if the sequel is based on another true story. So far this is what we know about the movie.
Collegiate a cappella group the Barden Bellas enter into an international competition that no American team has ever won.
Banks has had a big hand in bringing this series to the big screen as she produced and starred in the first movie while this time around she will be producing, staring in as well as taking up directing duties. As it is her first picture as a director the jury is out on what we can expect but she has built a career on unique roles in the likes of the “Hunger Games” series, Sam Rami’s “Spider-man” movies as well as working on “30 Rock” for a number of seasons so it is hoped that she will bring her experience to the table.
The other big break out star of Pitch Perfect, and also returning for Pitch Perfect 2, is Anna Kendrick who brought the cups song to the public attention. Kendrick has always been a sign of a good movie and her name attached to any release usually means that we can expect an above par release.
