This weekend brings Pitch Perfect 3 to theaters, offering a different kind of musical opposite Hugh Jackman’s circus extravaganza in The Greatest Showman. So just in case you haven’t seen the first two installments of the a capella franchise, Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Chrissie Fit, Hana Mae Lee, and Ester Dean took the time to run through both Pitch Perfect movies in under seven minutes. It’s not as fun musically, but it’s a good way to catch up for anyone who has a friend dragging them to the final performance of the Bellas.

Are all you pitches ready for one last round with the Bellas?
The first Pitch Perfect 3 trailer arrived online this weekend, giving us a much better idea of what the a capella group featuring Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp and more are up to for what appears to be their third and final outing together. All of the Bellas have graduated college now (well, almost all), and they’re having some trouble getting jobs and staying motivated.
Desperate for some semblance of purpose, the Bellas decide to get together for an overseas USO tour that apparently also doubles as some kind of competition. But this is the first time the Bellas will be facing musical groups who don’t just make music with their mouths. So how is that going to turn out? Watch the Pitch Perfect 3 trailer below to find out.

The follow-up was originally slated for a July release, but got pushed back a bit into the old release date once occupied by the delayed Pacific Rim 2. And now the film has a director.
