New PITCH PERFECT 2 Images Feature Familiar Faces and New Additions

by     Posted 29 days ago


Earlier this morning, Universal released the first trailer for the upcoming musical comedy Pitch Perfect 2 and it was kind of fantastic.  The follow-up looks to be every bit as fun and surprising as the first film, and it has Elizabeth Banks in the director’s chair to boot.  Continuing on with today’s festivities, Universal has released a batch of new Pitch Perfect 2 images from the film, which reveal what Adam Devine’s Bumper has been up to since the first movie (hanging with Joe Lo Truglio, of course) and also give us a look at the Barden Bellas’ new addition Hailee Steinfeld.  I’d go so far as to say that the first movie was the most entertaining movie I saw in theaters in 2012, so I’m fairly excited for this one.

Check out the new Pitch Perfect 2 images after the jump.  The film also stars Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Skylar Astin, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow, Alexis Knapp, Ester Dean, Hana Mae Lee, John Michael Higgins, and Katey SegalPitch Perfect 2 opens in theaters on May 15, 2015.

PITCH PERFECT 2 Trailer: The Barden Bellas Take on the World Championships of A Cappella

by     Posted 29 days ago


Universal Pictures just released the very first Pitch Perfect 2 trailer and it looks as though the musical comedy sequel could be another big winner.  Not only did the first film turn out to be a surprise hit and claim over $113 million at the worldwide box office, but it also helped Anna Kendrick‘s rendition of “Cups” hit #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 and wound up amassing such an enthusiastic following that Universal decided to bring the original film back to theaters in sing-along format.  As someone who’s watched Pitch Perfect time and time again, there’s a lot riding on the sequel and based on this first look at the film, actress/producer-turned-first time feature director Elizabeth Banks may have nailed it.

Forget the national college a cappella competition.  In Pitch Perfect 2 it’s all about the world championship of a cappella.  We’ve got familiar songs and faces, “Cups” is still quite catchy and the Bellas are as charming and amusing as ever, but it looks as though Banks and co. are going bigger in every respect and based on how this trailer plays, it could work exceptionally well.  Hit the jump to check out the Pitch Perfect 2 trailer for yourself.  The film also stars Rebel Wilson, Brittany SnowSkylar AstinHailee SteinfeldAnna CampKatey SegalAdam Devine and of course Banks as well.  Pitch Perfect 2 opens in theaters on May 15, 2015.

Workaholics Adam Devine Blake Anderson Anders Holm Kyle Newacheck

Comedy Central’s hit single-camera comedy series Workaholics, recently renewed for Seasons 4 and 5, tells the story of three friends who live, work and party together 24/7.  Even though they sometimes do their jobs well, they’re more concerned with sleeping in, getting drunk and partying like there’s no tomorrow.

During this exclusive interview with Collider, while they were at the Comedy Central portion of the TCA Press Tour, creator/actors Adam Devine, Blake Anderson, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck (who also directs the show) talked about how surreal the success of the show is, that they always had the goal of doing a TV show but that there were several attempts that fell through, the moment they realized just how many people were actually watching the show, and what fans can expect from the all-new episodes they have airing on Wednesday nights.  Check out what they had to say after the jump.

Skylar Astin and Anna Camp Talk PITCH PERFECT, Auditions, Favorite Songs in the Film, Improv, Filming Vomit Scenes, Go-To Karaoke Songs and More

by     Posted 2 years, 78 days ago


The hilarious new comedy Pitch Perfect, from director Jason Moore (Broadway’s Avenue Q) and screenwriter Kay Cannon (New Girl, 30 Rock), tells the story of Beca (Anna Kendrick), a young woman who dreams of being a music producer, but who instead finds herself at Barden University in an all-female a cappella singing group.  With both new takes on old favorites and hits of right now, The Bellas fight to climb their way to the top of the cutthroat world of college music competitions.  The film also stars Rebel Wilson, Skylar Astin, Adam Devine, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow, John Michael Higgins and Elizabeth Banks.

At the film’s press junket, co-stars Skylar Astin (who plays Jesse, one of the Treblemakers who also competes for Beca’s affections just as hard as he does the championship title) and Anna Camp (who plays Aubrey, the stubborn and high-strung leader of The Bellas) talked about their audition songs, their favorite songs to sing in the film, their go-to karaoke songs, what it was like to shoot the vomit scenes, how much improvisation went on during shooting, and when they decided they wanted to get into acting.  Camp also talked about her role in the new Fox comedy series The Mindy Project, starring Mindy Kaling, and Astin talked about his upcoming comedy 21 and Over, from the writers of The Hangover, and they both revealed which musical they’d love to be in the movie version of.  Check out what they had to say after the jump.

7 Clips from PITCH PERFECT Starring Anna Kendrick

by     Posted 2 years, 86 days ago


Anna Kendrick is becoming an actress I trust instinctively.  I love watching her on screen, so if I am not sure about a movie, her presence will nudge me to go see.  Pitch Perfect is a good test case.  It’s a snarky college movie, which can be good but often isn’t.  The Kendrick Factor makes me want to check it out though, and it helps that the movie has been getting great early buzz.  Even if you haven’t fallen for Kendrick as hard as I have, you can check out 7 clips from Pitch Perfect to get a sense of the movie after the jump.

Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Alexis Knapp, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Adam Devine also star in the acapella comedy.  Directed by Jason Moore, Pitch Perfect opens October 5.

by     Posted 2 years, 130 days ago


Anna Kendrick (Up in the Air) could do no wrong, even before this new clip of her engaging in a rap battle in director Jason Moore’s musical comedy film, Pitch Perfect.  Kendrick stars as Beca, a college student who stumbles into an a cappella club populated by a motley crew of girls whose only common link is their singing ability.  While the clip features other cast members joining in on the “riff off,” Kendrick steals the show at the end.

Also starring Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Alexis Knapp, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Adam Devine, Pitch Perfect opens October 5th.  Hit the jump to watch the clip and to see how you can make it into a music video for the movie.

First Images from the Set of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT Season Four Reveal a Sheet-Covered Tobias and the WORKAHOLICS Guys

by     Posted 2 years, 132 days ago


It’s strange to think that the same show that was cancelled for a lack of viewers six years ago is now having to field eager paparazzi interested in snapping shots of the actors on set.  Nevertheless, the first images from the set of the fourth season of Arrested Development have hit the interwebs.  They’re not much, but for those of us obsessed with finding out what the Bluth family has been up to all this time, shots of David Cross characteristically wrapped up in a body sheet are pretty damn tantalizing.  Moreover, it looks like Workaholics stars Blake Anderson, Adam DeVine and Anders Holm make an appearance in an early episode.

Hit the jump to check out the images.  Cross, Jason Bateman, Portia de Rossi, Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Alia Shawkat, Tony Hale, Jessica Walter and Jeffrey Tambor all return for the new season of Arrested Development, which will premiere on Netflix sometime next year.

First Trailer for PITCH PERFECT Starring Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson [Updated with 9 Images]

by     Posted 2 years, 187 days ago


The first trailer for the musical comedy Pitch Perfect has gone online.  The film stars Anna Kendrick and centers on an all-girls college a capella group that is in the process of rebuilding in order to defeat the rival all-boys group.  Yes, the film is likely capitalizing on the country’s sudden obsession with Glee, The Voice, etc., but this trailer is saved by the electric charm of Kendrick and Bridesmaids standout Rebel Wilson’s impeccable sense of humor.  In other hands Pitch Perfect has all the makings of a Step Up copycat, but with the promising chemistry between Kendrick and Wilson, Avenue Q’s Jason Moore in the director’s chair, and Elizabeth Banks producing, I’m definitely interested to see more.  Also, as if Kendrick wasn’t already one of the coolest people around, the girl’s got an impressive voice to boot.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer.  The film also stars Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, John Michael Higgins, Adam DeVine and Christopher Mintz-PlassePitch Perfect opens on October 5th.

Comedy Central Orders Third Season of WORKAHOLICS

by     Posted 3 years, 55 days ago

Comedy Central announced today a pre-emptive order for yet another season of Workaholics, the hilarious new comedy series currently in the middle of its second season. A surprisingly funny, and outrageous comedy series, this is one of my favorite new series that seems to be gaining a lot of ground with viewers. Complete with 90′s pop culture references, reckless behavior, ridiculous mishaps and a fantastic trio of main characters composed of Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm, Workaholics is easily one of the best original series Comedy Central has had in awhile. Kent Alterman, head of original programming and production at Comedy Central says, “We feel like the show is one, big public service announcement, teaching the youth of America how to engage with the workplace.” Offices would be much more interesting with this trio around, and a third season is just want the doctor ordered.
