The Pitches are now available to rent or purchase at Amazon.com. The movie comes out through Netflix and Redbox on October 20th.
2011 Critics’ Choice Movie Award winner for “Best Young Actress” Hailee Steinfeld (right), shows off her voice with fellow Bella singer Beca (Anna Kendrick). You may recognize Steinfeld from 2010’s remake of “True Grit” or last year’s “Begin Again”.
In this hilarious continuation to the surprise hit from 2012, Anna Kendrick reprises her role as Beca, orchestrating her collegiate a cappella singing group’s return to competition. Rejoining Beca on stage is the returning cast of misfits from the first movie, along with politically incorrect competition commentators John (John Michael Higgins) and Gail (Elizabeth Banks). “Pitch Perfect 2” marks a stunning directorial debut for Banks (“The Hunger Games” collection), who took on the difficult Hollywood task of making a sequel as good as–if not better than–the original film.
“Pitch Perfect 2” delivers a chorus of nonstop laughs throughout the movie using gags, one-liners and expanded story lines on each of the singers. The always amusing Australian stand-up comic Rebel Wilson headlines most of this film’s funniest scenes. As Fat Amy, Wilson provides us with an impeccable, quick-witted physical comedy presence not seen since Leslie Mann’s magnificent, Jim Carrey-esque performance in last year’s “The Other Woman”.
