There are few performers as easy to watch as Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick. Both are blessed with that most uncommon superpower – they walk on screen and you instantly like them, no strings attached. So any movie that casts them side-by-side deserves your attention. If that movie is a musical, that movie becomes an instant must-see. But now Hollywood have decided to test your devotion by making them the leads in the upcoming Trolls, an animated musical based on those creepy Troll dolls.

Joe Swanberg has gone from prolific director of divisive mumblecore indies to director of more widely-seen and loved indie features, like Drinking Buddies — although Swanberg has been making films for over a decade, Drinking Buddies was his mainstream breakout. Or as mainstream as indies can get, anyway. As you can see in the trailer for his latest, his appeal is only growing.

by Britt Hayes June 15, 2015 @ 4:43 PM
Before Pitch Perfect 2 even hit theaters, Universal already began cooking up plans for Pitch Perfect 3, with Rebel Wilson reportedly returning to reprise the role of the beloved Fat Amy. The studio has now made those plans official, and not only is Wilson returning, but so is Anna Kendrick. Aca-obviously.

‘Pitch Perfect 3’ is Officially Happening With Series Screenwriter Kay Cannon

by Jacob Hall June 10, 2015 @ 12:12 PM
The original Pitch Perfect grossed a modest $65 million at the domestic box office, which was just enough to justify a sequel. Three years later, Pitch Perfect 2 has just passed $160 million on a budget of only $29 million, so yeah, of course Universal is officially moving forward with Pitch Perfect 3. It turns out that a combination of snarky comedy and a capella remixes of pop hits is a license to print money. So much money.

‘Pitch Perfect 2’ Clips Bring Fierce Rivalry and a Very Sad Version of ‘Cups’

Pitch Perfect 2 is expanding the quirky realm of a capella competition, as the Bellas prepare to face off against rivals from around the world. We get to meet some of these new competitors (zee Germans) in the new clip above, and yeah, they’re pretty fierce (and funny). Universal has released an additional clip as well, but that one’s a bit more somber, and features a totally bummer version of “Cups.”

‘Pitch Perfect 2’ Trailer: The Bellas Go International

by Jacob Hall February 10, 2015 @ 11:15 AM
The first ‘Pitch Perfect’ was a sleeper success, doing surprisingly solid business at the box office and earning equally solid reviews from critics. But it was home video that transformed this little a cappella comedy into a genuine sensation, instantly becoming the favorite film of 12-year-old girls (and their initially reluctant parents) all over the world. So the new ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ trailer arrives with the air of an event film. The sequel is not an underdog, but the Bigger, Flashier, and Louder follow-up that has the confidence to suggest that there is an entire franchise to be found here.

‘The Voices’ Trailer: Ryan Reynolds’ Pets Tell Him to Kill People

by Jacob Hall January 8, 2015 @ 3:44 PM
After years of trying and failing to become a franchise-friendly leading man, Ryan Reynolds may have finally found his true calling: starring in pitch black comedies about crazy people who murder women on the order of their pets. At lest that’s the premise of ‘The Voices,’ a deranged little movie that won its fair share of fans on the festival circuit last year. Now that the new trailer has arrived, we can see why: this thing looks nuts.
