Pitch Perfect 2 starring Anna Kendrick

Christmas is finally behind us, and so are all the holiday-centric movies. So it wouldn’t be much of a November or December release without a movie involving Christmas or Santa Clause. And it looks like we will be getting one of those from Disney soon, with none other than Anna Kendrick starring as the daughter of Santa Claus.

The currently untitled Disney Santa Claus movie, under the working title Nicole, comes from Miss Congeniality scribe Marc Lawrence, who will also direct. Kendrick is in talks to play Santa Claus’s daughter who is forced to take over the family business after her father decides to retire and her brother gets cold feet on the big night. More on the story below.

DreamWorks Trolls title

I’ll admit that I had my doubts about DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls being an entertaining film considering that it was based on the ’80s toys that many of us have long forgotten about. But when that first gleeful trailer popped up, it came to many viewers as a pleasant surprise. Then they showed even more footage at the San Diego Comic-Con, and soon enough, the film caught my attention.

Now a new trailer has been released featuring the film’s lead voice stars, Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick, talking about the film and how music and animation go hand in hand. Check out the latest trailer for Trolls below.

DreamWorks Trolls title

Thursdays at San Diego Comic-Con International are probably the most uneventful, while also still being just a little bit special at the same time. While most people are pumped and getting situated for Saturday, DreamWorks Animation had a presentation for their upcoming film Trolls featuring the voice talents of Justin Timberlake and Anna Kendrick.

We briefly saw what kind of a film Trolls would be in a teaser trailer. Full of comedy and top 40 songs, Trolls is based on the 90s toys that took over the pop culture world by storm, and if a hit with audiences, it will likely make a huge come back.

Since Thursday is one of the lightest days of the Con, we sat down at Hall H to find out more about this movie. Check out what they had to say and a brief description of the scenes that were shown at the panel.

Pitch Perfect 2

With Pitch Perfect 2 grossing $260 million worldwide since its release, Universal Pictures has already put Pitch Perfect 3 into development. Last week, it was reported that Kay Cannon (the screenwriter to penned the first two scripts) was coming back to write the third installment. However, leads Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson weren’t optioned for a third film, which meant that if they were to return, they would need to have new deals inked. Elizabeth Banks is also unconfirmed to return, but seeing as how she was the creative force behind the sequel’s success, there could be an offer made to her soon.

Now we are getting word that Kendrick and Wilson are indeed coming back for Pitch Perfect 3, and that the film has been scheduled for a July 21, 2017 release. More on the story below.

Pitch Perfect 2

A $69 million dollar weekend opening for a music comedy sequel is rare, but it happened to Pitch Perfect 2, and with the film already grossing over $250 million worldwide, Universal Pictures has already decided that we need to be pitch slapped once more. The studio has announced that there will be a Pitch Perfect 3, with Kay Cannon – screenwriter of the first two movies – in talks to return to write the script for the third.

Rich Moore who directed the first Pitch Perfect film did not return to direct its sequel. He was replaced by Elizabeth Banks, who also served as a producer on the first film. It is unclear if she will return to direct Pitch Perfect 3.

Pitch Perfect 2
Directed by: Elizabeth Banks
Written by: Kay Cannon
Starring: Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Katey Sagal, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Flula Borg, Hana Mae Lee, Skylar Astin, Adam Devine, Chrissie Fit, Alexis Knapp, Ester Dean, John Michael Higgins
Universal Pictures
Rated PG-13 | 115 Minutes
Release date: May 15, 2015

Pitch Perfect was the unexpected hit of 2012. The film took the world by storm with its hilarious collegiate a cappella groups covering of foot-tapping chart topping top 40s songs, witty humor, and its simple yet sweet underdog story. It was rather easy at the time to write the film off based on those things alone, but because it was just so much fun to watch, the Pitch Perfect became one of the top box office grossing films. Three years later, we are now getting a sequel that was expected to be an exciting follow-up to the original. Unfortunately, it falls short of that. Still, Pitch Perfect 2 is every bit as cheery as its predecessor, it just doesn’t know how to express itself like the original film.

Here Elizabeth Banks makes her directorial debut after having produced the first one. Using a script from Kay Cannon (who also returns), the sequel makes a few changes, with some of the original characters looking towards a future beyond collegiate a cappella singing, while others are just stepping foot into it.

Pitch Perfect Cast 2

If you’ve seen the commercials for Pitch Perfect 2 and wondered, “Hey! I need to first mock the first one,” well congrats because this week’s Screen Junkies Honest Trailer is up! Presenting… Pitch Perfect!

Check out the video below.

The 2012 surprise hit starring Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson told the story of Beca (Kendrick) who is talked into an all girl a capella group on her college campus. The Honest Trailer hooks me right away by tapping into my childhood with references to Carmen San Diego and Michael Winslow of Police Academy/Spaceballs fame, before declaring the film, “The greatest movie ever made about making noises with their mouth!”
