The First Trailer For ‘Pitch Perfect 3’ Has Arrived, Watch Anna Kendrick And Rebel Wilson Star In The Final Film Of The Franchise!

The original ‘Pitch Perfect‘ film was fantastic. It surprised everyone with its humor and charm. And then Hollywood did what it always does, it made a sequel.

Pitch Perfect 2 hit theaters in 2015 and while it wasn’t as wonderful as the original film, it still received mostly positive reviews from critics and made over $280 million worldwide against a budget of just $29 million. It became the highest-grossing music comedy film of all-time, overtaking the delightful School of Rock.

The third (and final) film in the franchise, Pitch Perfect 3, is currently scheduled for a December 22, 2017 release date. You may remember it was originally going to be released this summer, but they decided to push it back.

Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Elizabeth Banks, Hailee Steinfeld and Anna Camp will all be returning. That’s probably why the sequels have worked so far. The cast from the original film have remained committed. The chemistry is still there.

You can check out the first trailer for the final film in the franchise below…

Movie Review: Pitch Perfect 2 – Almost As Fun As The First

pitch_perfect_anna_kendrick_a_l - 29MAY2015

I’ve never been a big one for musicals. I’m one of the few people that used to fast forward through all of the singing parts in Glee. One thing I like about Pitch Perfect is that despite the fact that it’s about music, it isn’t too heavy on the music. The characters aren’t randomly bursting into song every three minutes, which made this premise tolerable for me. But it’s really the humor that sells it. While I will say the story is there, it’s a bit been there done that.

In this installment, we are again introduced to a perky acapella singing group, after they suffer an embarrassing mishap onstage. They then fight to get into an international acapella competition to redeem themselves and their group. To be honest, this premise was almost exactly the same as the first. If you really need to know it, just go watch Pitch Perfect. The only thing that changed is the venue.

Luckily, the snarky humor was there. It still has the breezy humor of the first, and is a movie that makes you fall in love with it, as it makes fun of itself. The actors brought the same energy they had and when it comes to laughs and dialog, it didn’t fall flat.

One area where it did fail was the failure to use Kendric. While the first movie really centered on her, she’s more of an afterthought in this one. That’s a shame, because I like my heroines with a bit of edge. She’s still edgy in this one, but we just don’t see as much of her.

This time around, it’s Rebel Wilson who takes center stage. That’s a bit of a problem, as Wilson is and always has been a one note character. She had charm and great comic shtick, but a little of her goes a long way and focusing the film around her felt kind of exhausting. I feel like if they’d toned her down a bit, it would have been more tolerable.

The music is a bit overproduced for something that’s supposed to be acapella. It’s almost too perfect and it causes a bit of a disconnect between the story and the sound. The scenes with the other groups in the international competition were amusing, but they went a bit too far with the stereotypes and turned every other country into a weird cliché.

There are a bit too many storylines going on as well. They really didn’t need to add as much as they did. There were lots of side plots about Beca’s secret internship that really didn’t need to be there. I also wasn’t 100% sure why she was hiding it. I mean, she’s a senior in college. Of course she’s going to secure her future, right? They could have removed that part entirely and the movie wouldn’t have suffered for it. It also would have felt a bit cleaner.

I will say it was worth the watch. It just wasn’t quite as good at the first go-around.

Watch All The Super Bowl Movie Trailers, Including ‘Furious 7’ and ‘Jurassic World’


Apparently, something called the ‘Super Bowl‘ aired last night. I’m still not exactly sure what those people wearing the helmets on the field do, but I did enjoy the amount of movie trailers aired during the big game. Overall, the Super Bowl commercials were disappointing. I think I chuckled once? Maybe twice? The creativity was definitely lacking this year.

However, there was one thing that saved the night, and no we are not talking about the dancing sharks during Katy Perry’s halftime show.
