Pitch Perfect 2 is the new film in this successful franchise, directed again by Elizabeth Banks who also co-stars as Gail.

Now in their senior year, the Barden Bellas are back to compete in an international a cappella competition that no American group has ever won before. Following an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction that sees Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) expose herself at an event to celebrate the US President’s birthday, the Barden Bellas attempt to restore their tarnished reputation by entering the World Championships, which sees them competing against European champions Das Sound Machine from Germany – check out Birgitte Hjort Sørensen from Borgen.

Pitch Perfect 2 follows Beca (Anna Kendrick) and the gang through their final year and sees many of the original cast reprising their roles, including Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow, Hana Mae Lee and Alexis Knapp. Along with more catchy singing  performances from the Bellas, the film also features cameo performances from real-life a capella groups Penn Masala and Pentatonix and the Filharmonic.

This film delivers well in the feel good genre – funny, with lots of music, some original songs and sparkling enthusiastic dance routines, which offer plenty of evidence that the franchise will be back for a third outing.
