Super Bowl XLIX would be the last place you would think you’d see an ad for Pitch Perfect 2, starring Anna Kendrick. But with the first film’s popularity, there is really no reason to question the decision. The latest TV spot is more or less like the teaser trailer that was released earlier this year, with a few hints of new footage and jokes. And since it is the Super Bowl, it only seems fitting that the ad feature some players from a football team – in this case, the Green Bay Packers.
Hit the jump to check it out.
Just in case you don’t know who the Barden Bellas are singing off against, that’s T.J. Lang, Don Barclay, David Bakhtiari, and Josh Sitton, with Clay Matthews flexing his muscles in attempts to intimidate the Bellas. Of course this leaves Rebel Wilson‘s character very flustered.
The sequel will center on the Barden Bellas competing in the World Acapella Championships, where no American team has ever one.
Pitch Perfect 2 also stars Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow, Skyler Astin, Katey Sagal, Anna Camp, Adam DeVine, and more. It is directed by Elizabeth Banks and written by Kay Cannon. The film opens on May 15, 2015.
The Barden Bellas are back in Pitch Perfect 2, the follow-up to 2012â€™s smash hit. The comedy is helmed by Elizabeth Banks, co-star and producer of Pitch Perfect, and produced by Paul Brooks, Max Handelman and Banks. Writer Kay Cannon returns to the team to pen the next chapter.
