Yes, the internet just shook with squeals of glee (no pun intended): the ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ trailer has arrived and, for better or worse, it looks like a whole lot more of the same. For fans, that's perfectly okay! Why fix something that clearly isn't broken? For the people who just couldn't deal with the first entry, this one promises all kinds of new nightmares and/or migraines.
Pitch Perfect 2
'Pitch Perfect 2' has added some fresh blood to its cast of returning players by recruiting 'True Grit' star Hailee Steinfeld into its a capella choir. And word is that she's being primed to take over the franchise if it becomes a series.
When 'Pitch Perfect 2' was greenlit, it was assumed -- or at least hoped for -- that stars Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson would return. The former led the first film, while the latter was its breakout performer. And if you're a fan of 'Pitch Perfect' you'll be happy to know that both are coming back for the sequel.
Despite its seemingly low-key release, 2012's 'Pitch Perfect' was one of the year's biggest surprise hits and most pleasant surprises, grossing $115 million worldwide and winning over even the most cynical of audiences. A sequel was a no brainer, but we've already been thrown a curveball -- original director Jason Moore will not be back and will be replaced by producer and star Elizabeth Banks, making her directorial debut.
Aca-heck yes! Universal confirms they're planning a 'Pitch Perfect 2,' and that news is so great that we don't even care that we can't see it for another couple years or so.
