Can Anna Kendrick Make A Cappella Watchable All Over Again?

The movie that almost made a cappella seem cool is now a franchise.

Pitch Perfect 2‘s second trailer just dropped and it makes the first one look like the Whiffenpoofs’ cocktail hour. The Barden Bellas are now at the President of the United States’ birthday celebration, where Fat Amy (the inimitable Rebel Wilson), accidentally exposes herself and gets the team suspended from domestic competition. Desperate for a stage, our protagonists end up enrolling in the World Competition and facing off against a vicious European team of indeterminate origin (let’s just call them Icelandic).

We’ll be rooting for Anna Kendrick, Brittany Snow, and the rest of the Bellas when the movie hits theaters on May 15th. We’ll also pretend we’re going to make our girlfriend happy. This will only be partially true.
