Listen up, aca-maniacs, the big day is finally here. Yesterday brought us the very first official poster for "Pitch Perfect 2," the most anticipated upcoming release in the highly popular genre we like to call Female Bonding Movies With Laughter And Also A Lot Of Mouth Noises. Today, you're in for an aca-treat. The aca-trailer is here. (We usually just call it a trailer, but, hey, when something works, it just works.)
Beca (Anna Kendrick), Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson), Jesse (Skylar Astin) and the gang are back with some new friends (what's up, Hailee Steinfeld), and this time, they're going international. The Barden Bellas are determined to win a global a cappella competition and keep their sisterly love intact, but it's going to be tough because, as Elizabeth Banks' judge character Gail (Banks also directs this installment of the series) says, "No American team has ever won," for reasons that the whole world "hates us."
Oh, also there are fart jokes and really great group arrangement of "Cups," the surprise hit from the first movie. Come inside, warm up your singing voice, and get ready for an aca-ride. Or just a ride. Either one.
"Pitch Perfect 2" sings and dances its way into theaters May 15, 2015.
