The first trailer debuted earlier this summer, giving us a great impression of a film not taking itself too seriously, and just having fun with the music – exactly what musical-comedies should be doing, in my books – and now Apple have debuted a new featurette, giving us A Look Inside.
“Beca is that girl who’d rather listen to what’s coming out of her headphones than what’s coming out of you. Arriving at her new college, she finds herself not right for any clique but somehow is muscled into one that she never would have picked on her own: alongside mean girls, sweet girls and weird girls whose only thing in common is how good they sound when they sing together.
When Beca takes this acoustic singing group out of their world of traditional arrangements and perfect harmonies into all-new mash-ups, they fight to climb their way to the top of the cutthroat world of college “a cappella.” This could wind up either the coolest thing they’ll ever do or the most insane, and it will probably be a little of both.”
Starring alongside Kendrick in the lead will be a great supporting cast, headed up by Brittany Snow (John Tucker Must Die), Rebel Wilson (Bridesmaids), Alexis Knapp (Project X), Adam DeVine (Workaholics), and John Michael Higgins (Yes Man), with the excellent Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games) producing, who makes a nice appearance here behind the scenes.
Avenue Q’s John Moore (One Tree Hill) makes his feature directorial debut, with a script from Kay Cannon (30 Rock), adapting Mickey Rapkin’s original book.
Pitch Perfect will be hitting theatres in the US on 5th October, followed by a UK release on 19th October. I can’t wait. In the meantime, enjoy this new featurette. (I’m still loving the mini a cappella version of David Guetta’s Titanium (feat. Sia).)
