Pitch Perfect 2: What You Need To Know

Those superstars of acapella, the Barden Bellas are back for a second outing! After scooping over $100 million at the box office first time round, they came back earlier this year and took almost $300 million with Pitch Perfect 2. It’s out on DVD now (you can order it on the right-hand side of the page) and here is everything you need to know about their second outing...

 

What’s The Plot?

After triumphing in the national championships of acapella, the Barden Bellas are rewarded with the chance to perform for the President of the United States. At first it all goes swimmingly, but disaster strikes when the group’s maverick Australian Fat Amy suffers a serious wardrobe malfunction. Humiliated and the Bellas are taken out of the Aca-Circuit, possibly for good. Desperate to regain their good name and their status, the group strike a deal with their governing body, if they win the international championships of acapella, they can be reinstated. There’s just one problem, it’s a competition no American team has ever won...

 

Who’s In It?

Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Skylar Astin, Anna Camp and Brittany Snow all reprise their roles from Pitch Perfect, with True Grit star and new singing sensation Hailee Steinfeld, Sons Of Anarchy’s Katey Sagal and Teen Beach Movie’s Chrissie Fit all joining the cast for the sequel.

 

Does It Deliver?

Absolutely. It’s bigger, bolder and just as much fun as the original movie. The new additions complement the returning Wilson, Kendrick and others perfectly, the laughs are bigger, the songs are catchier and your smiles while watching it will be even bigger. Thankfully Pitch Perfect 3 is already confirmed for 2017 and the story of the Barden Bellas isn’t over yet...

 

Pitch Perfect 2 is out now.
