Pitch Perfect, the most popular movie ever made about a cappella (not that it has a lot of competitors for the title), has a sequel on the way.
Directed by Elizabeth Banks, Pitch Perfect 2 finds Beca (Anna Kendrick), Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson), and the rest of their singing group once again prepping for an important competition. The new trailer reveals that they’re aiming for global domination this time: they want to be the best in the world. “No American team has ever won,” intones an a cappella expert (played by Banks).
The rest is campus shenanigans — parties, awkward flirting, and… trapping students in giant nets. Hailee Steinfeld joins a wonderful cast with Kendrick, Wilson, Banks, Brittany Snow, Alexis Knapp, Anna Camp, and the always delightful Katey Sagal.
Pitch Perfect 2 opens May 15, 2015.
