Pitch Perfect 2 Releases A Trailer

Pitch Perfect was a small film back in 2012 that surprised many people. The trailer could do the film any sense of justice of how funny and endearing the film actually was. Pitch Perfect eventually became a new favorite for me. Released just today was the trailer to the sequel, Pitch Perfect 2. Everyone you know and love from the first film is back with some fresh faces in this feature directed by Elizabeth Banks.

The trailer begins with an acapella version of ‘When I’m Gone’ sung by the original gang of girls and immediately builds and shows an almost Fight Club-esque secret society of acapella groups. See for yourself.

The sequel looks like it could be a lot of fun with friends and fans of the original film but it seems like there’s something missing. The charm from the first film is missing in this trailer, which makes me weary. Rebel Wilson, whom had her breakout role in the first film, seems to be trying extra hard to earn a laugh. We do get shots of everyone including the return of Adam DeVine for an unknown reason.

I’m not writing the film off entirely this early on since the first film’s trailers didn’t do the film any justice either.

Pitch Perfect 2 is set to come out May 15, 2015.

Are you excited? What was your favorite scene from the first film?
