In a year where audiences have been cool on sequels, will “Pitch Perfect 3” sing the right tune? The breakout musical comedy has sustained two pictures, but the third installment is swinging for the fences, aiming for a holiday season release, and it’ll be interesting to see if moviegoers are ready for another song.
The massive ensemble this time around includes Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Hana Mae Lee, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Chrissie Fit, Kelley Jakle, Shelley Regner, Elizabeth Banks, John Michael Higgins, John Lithgow, and Ruby Rose, with the story seeing The Bellas back together – out of school and on tour overseas, where more musical mayhem unfolds.
“These movies are so good at capturing relevant moments that happen to all kids,” Kendrick told EW. “In this case, they’re heightened and absurd, but most people’s first years out of school are a pretty bleak reality check, and that’s where we pick up the story in this movie.” Here’s the official synopsis:
After the highs of winning the World Championships, the Bellas find themselves split apart and discovering there aren’t job prospects for making music with your mouth. But when they get the chance to reunite for an overseas USO tour, this group of awesome nerds will come together to make some music, and some questionable decisions, one last time.
“Pitch Perfect 3” opens on November 10th.
