Hollywood loves to tell larger-than-life stories, and it’s pretty good at it. But these tales almost always come with a bit of embellishment, none more so than the movies about college life. Whether you’re watching Old School, Acceptedor Sydney White, there are always going to be differences between the movie magic and the everyday realities of college living. Here are just a few that stick out like Elle Woods in her bunny suit. Continue reading
Why is Anna Kendrick my celebrity girl crush? She’s hilarious, talented and a big name star…That’s why! You know her from Pitch Perfect and Up In The Air. She plays the smart, sarcastic, funny girl in many of her ﬁlms and she’s very charismatic and down-to-earth during interviews and behind-the-scenes footage from her movies. What sets Anna apart from other actresses is that she has an amazing singing voice, and she has sung in several of her ﬁlms. She’s even a rapper in Pitch Perfect! I was excited to learn that Anna is the lead in two musical ﬁlms coming out this year – The Last 5 Years and Into The Woods! I’m clearly a fan of Anna’s work, but in case you need more persuading here are 3 reasons why YOU should join the Anna Kendrick Fan Club… Continue reading
According to a recent Movieweb article, a Pitch Perfect sequel is in the works! Skylar Astin, who played Jesse in the first film, told Movieweb that he and co-star Rebel Wilson are currently in talks with representatives from Universal regarding the development of the sequel, but did not have much more information to share at this point. As funny as I found Pitch Perfect to be, I’m a bit surprised Universal is considering a sequel for two reasons: one is that the first film was not a huge box office money maker and two being that sequels to these kinds of films often make even less (consider the Mean Girls or Bring It On sequels).
However, Pitch Perfect has begun to develop a cult like following with much being made of the film’s sharp and relatable humor (as well a Rebel Wilson’s wonderful comedic timing and Anna Kendrick’s surprisingly good singing voice; if you haven’t seen the clip of her singing live with a cup on Letterman, you’re missing out!). Universal might just be banking on that cult following to keep fans coming back for more installments of a capella goodness, with or without Astin, Kendrick, Wilson, and the rest of the film’s stars.
I, for one, would definitely check out a Pitch Perfect sequel as long as some of the original cast is involved. I enjoyed the first film enough that I would like to see more of the original characters, but if it was a total recast, I don’t know how enthusiastic I would be.
