The Barden Bellas have already conquered the United States. In Pitch Perfect 2, they take on the world. Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson lead the cast of the a capella sequel, which hits theaters May 15. This time, the Bellas will attempt to win the world a capella championships, something no U.S. team has ever done. Along they way they’ll bond, go camping, haze new recruits and explore what looks like an underground world of a capella that includes David Cross, NFL star Clay Matthews and more.
But Pitch Perfect 2 isn’t all fun and games, as you’ll see right at the beginning of this trailer. It looks like there’s gonna be some emotion along side the jokes, part of the formula that made the 2012 original such a big cult hit. Below, watch the first Pitch Perfect 2 trailer.
UPDATE: We’ve added a bunch of photos from the set of the film. Check them out below. Read More »

It took Zach Braff ten years to get from his first directing effort to his second, and even then he had to turn to Kickstarter for funding. But it looks like he won’t be waiting quite so long to make his third. And he won’t need crowdfunding to get this one going, either.
Braff has entered talks with New line to direct Going in Style, a remake of the 1979 caper starring George Burns, Art Carney, and Lee Strasberg. Hit the jump for more details on the Zach Braff Going in Style remake. Read More »
Look, there are some great sequels coming out in 2015: Star Wars, The Avengers, Jurassic Park, The Terminator… the list goes on and on. But none of those will have synchronized dancing, a capella covers of pop songs, or Anna Kendrick. Those elements put the sequel to Pitch Perfect right up there on my must-see list.
Pitch Perfect 2, directed by Elizabeth Banks, opens May 15. The first trailer will be out Thursday, after it debuts at nationwide Pitch Perfect Sing-a-Long screenings Wednesday. In anticipation, a great teaser poster has been revealed. Check out the Pitch Perfect 2 poster below. Read More »
Paul Thomas Anderson never ceases to amaze. He makes a rain of frogs look plausible, turns Adam Sandler into an actor, and makes an iconic image out of drinking milkshakes. He’s always doing something surprising and wonderful. Anderson’s latest film, Inherent Vice, is two hours of those moments loosely strung together with a detective narrative.
Based on the novel by Thomas Pynchon, Inherent Vice stars Joaquin Phoenix as Doc, a ratty detective whose mysterious ex-girlfriend Shasta (Katherine Waterston) asks for help with a supposed plot against her new squeeze. Doc obliges, as Doc does with many people in the film, but the movie never really cares about solving this mystery. It’s more interested in Doc’s pot-infused, Choose Your Own Adventure lifestyle where he says “yes” to everything and takes the ride that follows.
That ride introduces some absolutely insane, memorable characters played by the likes of Josh Brolin, Martin Short, Reese Withersooon, Owen Wilson, Benicio Del Toro, Eric Roberts, Maya Rudolph and Jena Malone, all of whom pop in and out of Doc’s life on a whim. Some play significant roles, others do not, but Inherent Vice isn’t a movie about connecting these points. It’s pretty much just about the trip.
Inherent Vice had its Los Angeles Premiere at the AFI Fest presented by Audi and you can continue reading our Inherent Vice movie review below.

After perfecting her plain-girl act in Arrested Development, Mae Whitman (her?) is trying to shake it off in The Duff. She plays Bianca, a high school senior who’s dismayed to realize she’s considered the DUFF — Designated Ugly Fat Friend — to her prettier pals. In an effort to reinvent herself, she enlists the help of handsome popular jock Wesley (Robbie Amell).
It all sounds pretty silly, starting with the notion that Whitman is ugly and fat. But this is movie-land, where Rachel Leigh Cook was once considered freakishly repulsive because she dared wear overalls and glasses. And where we’re supposed to believe Amell, a 26-year-old former male model, is a typical teenager. Hit the jump to watch The Duff trailer.

DreamWorks Animation had it’s own Ghostbusters-style movie, B.O.O.: Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations, set for summer 2015 release. But now the company is rethinking the release date. ”We regularly evaluate how to maximize [our films'] value, including determining the most opportune time to release a film,” said a DWA spokesperson, and it turns out that summer 2015 is not the opportune time for B.O.O. The film is now floating in the aether without a release date, like one of its own ghosts. Read More »

Since his return to the screen, Arnold Schwarzenegger has dabbled not only in new projects, but in films that return the actor to well-known roles from his past. There’s Terminator: Genisys, of course, in which Schwarzenegger steps back into the metal skeleton of the T-800. And there are possible returns to Twins and Conan, as well. Now the actor says there’s a potential Running Man sequel in the offing — that would be a return to the comic/dystopian world of the 1987 adaptation of Stephen King’s early novel of the same title.
