Pitch Perfect 2 Trailer — WATCH HERE!
The Pitch Perfect 2 trailer is here! The first preview for the highly-anticipated musical sequel premiered on Thursday. Watch below!
The original film, starring Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, and Brittany Snow, hit theaters in 2012 and became a surprise hit. The second installment again follows the college singing group Barden Bellas as they get into more a capella shenanigans with their male counterparts, the Treblemakers. This time, the plot revolves around an international competition.
The new issue of Entertainment Weekly, of which Kendrick, Wilson and Snow are on the cover, features an interview with the stars and Elizabeth Banks, who is making her directorial debut with the sequel after producing and appearing in the first movie. “This is the stupidest idea I’ve ever had,” she jokes to the magazine. “My first movie is this huge studio movie that a lot of people care about that also happens to be a musical with massive dance numbers. I don’t know what I was thinking.” She further tells EW, “The first film flew under the radar, and it was a gift. This time around, much higher stakes.”
Hailee Steinfeld joins the cast, with returning stars Anna Camp and Skylar Astin. The preview to the film, which will hit theaters on May 15, kicks off with a new version of Kedrick’s beloved “Cups” song. Check out the trailer below!
