The Barden Bellas are back in the newest trailer for the upcoming Pitch Perfect 2. Expanding on the teaser trailer released in November, we get a glimpse of the incident that gets the a capella group banned from competition, and the steps they need to take to achieve redemption.
When Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb) suffers a most embarrassing wardrobe malfunction during the group’s performance of Miley Cyrus’ Wrecking Ball at a party for President Barack Obama’s birthday, the Bellas are suspended from collegiate competition. Their only hope for reinstatement is to win an international competition that has historically been dominated by European teams. Anna Kendrick (Into the Woods), Brittany Snow, and Anna Camp are among those who return for the sequel, joined by Hailee Steinfeld (Ender’s Game) as the newest Bella.
Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games series) directs this time around, from a script by returning writer Kay Cannon. The Universal film is slated for a May 15 release. Check out the trailer below.
