Pitch Perfect 3

Although the Pitch Perfect films have never been strong on narratives or plots, their strength lies in the rapturous a cappella beats of top 40 cover songs and themes of friendship. That has been their constant, and it remains true in Pitch Perfect 3, where there is a razor-thin plot and a list of nonsensical things that don’t even belong in the film in the first place.

However, in its meta sense of humor and cheesiness, along with some rather fun a cappella music and those themes of friendship, Pitch Perfect 3 isn’t a forgettable jazzy blur but semi-entertaining sing-a-long that doesn’t quite remember where it came from. My full review below.

Pitch Perfect 3

It’s hard to deny the absolute charm of Pitch Perfect, and because the first film was so successful, we got a trilogy. Though the second one was a somewhat flawed installment, it still had that hilarious chemistry between the cast. But the upcoming third promises to be the end of the Bellas, at least the ones that started this cinematic a cappella journey.

A new trailer for Pitch Perfect 3 just hit the web, and it reminds us of why this musical ensemble is not only hilarious, but also musically infectious. Check out the latest trailer for Pitch Perfect 3 here below.

The Edge of Seventeen

STX Entertainment has released a red band trailer for The Edge of Seventeen. The movie is a coming-of-age dramedy starring Academy Award nominee Hailee Steinfeld (True Grit, Pitch Perfect 2).

The Edge of Seventeen follows a teenager already dealing with her awkward existence. One day she discovers her best friend is dating her popular brother, leaving her feeling abandoned. It sounds like another generic “teenager dealing with teenager stuff” story at first. But mix in some naughty humor and some talented actors, and it becomes something that might just be worth checking out.

Continue below to watch the trailer, which of course comes with a NSFW warning.

Pitch Perfect 2

A $69 million dollar weekend opening for a music comedy sequel is rare, but it happened to Pitch Perfect 2, and with the film already grossing over $250 million worldwide, Universal Pictures has already decided that we need to be pitch slapped once more. The studio has announced that there will be a Pitch Perfect 3, with Kay Cannon – screenwriter of the first two movies – in talks to return to write the script for the third.

Rich Moore who directed the first Pitch Perfect film did not return to direct its sequel. He was replaced by Elizabeth Banks, who also served as a producer on the first film. It is unclear if she will return to direct Pitch Perfect 3.

Pitch Perfect 2
Directed by: Elizabeth Banks
Written by: Kay Cannon
Starring: Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Katey Sagal, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Flula Borg, Hana Mae Lee, Skylar Astin, Adam Devine, Chrissie Fit, Alexis Knapp, Ester Dean, John Michael Higgins
Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 115 Minutes
Release date: May 15, 2015

Pitch Perfect was the unexpected hit of 2012. The film took the world by storm with its hilarious collegiate a cappella groups covering of foot-tapping chart topping top 40s songs, witty humor, and its simple yet sweet underdog story. It was rather easy at the time to write the film off based on those things alone, but because it was just so much fun to watch, the Pitch Perfect became one of the top box office grossing films. Three years later, we are now getting a sequel that was expected to be an exciting follow-up to the original. Unfortunately, it falls short of that. Still, Pitch Perfect 2 is every bit as cheery as its predecessor, it just doesn’t know how to express itself like the original film.

Here Elizabeth Banks makes her directorial debut after having produced the first one. Using a script from Kay Cannon (who also returns), the sequel makes a few changes, with some of the original characters looking towards a future beyond collegiate a cappella singing, while others are just stepping foot into it.

Pitch Perfect 2

In Pitch Perfect 2, the Barden Bellas are graduating, and most of them have to come to the realization that there is life beyond collegiate a cappella competitions. The film has such a strong female presence, that the male cast are the supporting players. It’s a nice change of pace. Skylar Astin plays Jesse, another a cappella singer and Beca’s (Anna Kendrick) boyfriend, while Ben Platt plays Jesse’s best friend and Emily’s (Hailee Steinfeld) love interest.

We were recently invited to the film’s press conference where we talked about what it was like to work with Elizabeth Banks (who makes her directorial debut), improving, the evolution of their characters, some hilarious outtakes, and more.

Read our full interview with the Astin and Platt below.

Pitch Perfect 2

The first trailer and Super Bowl spot for Pitch Perfect 2 only provided a sampling of the plot of the upcoming a capella sequel starring Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson. The tone for both were a bit somber and gave us a few chuckles, but the latest trailer brings back a lot of what made the original so funny with witty and sometimes raunchy humor (courtesy of Wilson), and banter between film director and star Elizabeth Banks and John Michael Higgins.

Hit the jump to see the latest trailer for Pitch Perfect 2.

Pitch Perfect 2 Header

One of the most surprisingly hilarious films of 2012 was Pitch Perfect. The film had a sweet blend of witty humor and top 40 pop songs mashups that even had some haters tapping their foot to the beat of the music. Now Anna Kendick and Rebel Wilson are back for some more in Pitch Perfect 2. The first film saw the Barden Bellas beat the odds to become the first female a capella group to win a national title. In the sequel, the Bellas will enter themselves in a world wide competition where no American team has won.

The first trailer for Pitch Perfect 2 has comedy, cameos, the return of familiar faces, and of course music. But there are some emotional layers that can be heard as well, as hinted by the very first song sung in the trailer. Hit the jump to check it out.
