There is only one place a cappella groups get any love post-college, and that’s in Hollywood. Just ask any of the cast members of Glee, or better yet, Pitch Perfect, which became an instant cult classic when it was released in 2012. The movie was so popular, that they’re rounding up Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow and Adam DeVine for the sequel, which is due to hit theaters in May of next year.
We can hardly wait. And to hold us over until spring (it seems so, so far away), the trailer for the film has just been released and it is as great as we thought it would be. This time around, the Bellas are going up against some of the best singers in the world to win an international a cappella title – something an American team has never won.
There are hot singing studs, snotty Europeans who speak eight languages (but not the one called “loser”), fart noises and the Green Bay Packers. Yup – the team’s offensive line makes an appearance in the film as a very buff group of male a cappella singers. And yes, you do get the chance to see their bulging muscles. Thank you, director Elizabeth Banks.
Watch the trailer above and get psyched for this Spring, when the movie hits theaters.
