Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson go all “Glee” on us in the first trailer for “Pitch Perfect“, which premiered on Yahoo Movies!. A female-centric comedy, the film follows rival a cappela groups at the fictional Barton University. Kendrick stars as Beca, a freshman student who is cajoled into joining The Bellas. After realising their reportoire is stuck in the last century, it’s clearly down to Beca, and fellow new singers including Wilson’s Fat Amy to get The Bellas to the Finals.
This first trailer showcases Kendrick’s gorgeous singing voice (check out 2003′s “Camp” for another example!) but it looks like Wilson (“Bridesmaids“) is going to be the scene-stealer here, taking on her weight, a hate for cardio and comparing crystal meth to kissing the wrong boys – all in one two and half minute trailer!
Also starring Brittany Snow, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Adam DeVine and Elizabeth Banks, “Pitch Perfect” is released in October.
