One of the most surprising summer movies this year, Pitch Perfect took what could have have been a formulaic story filled with stereotypical characters and gave it enough fresh twists – and a whole lot of awesome a cappella music – to make it a lot of slightly twisted fun.
On December 18th the film is getting a home video release, that’s packed with features (even on the standard DVD!) including two (!!) audio commentary tracks, deleted and extended scenes and the proverbial much, much more. For the complete list, check out the official press release, following the jump.

“UNDENIABLY COOL, IRRESISTIBLY CHARMING AND UNFLINCHINGLY FUNNY!” - JAKE HAMILTON, FOX-TV
Universal City, California, November 20, 2012 – Beca (Anna Kendrick) arrives at her new college to find herself not right for any clique but somehow muscled into one she never would have picked on her own: alongside mean girls, sweet girls and weird girls whose only thing in common is how good they sound when they sing together in this hilarious laugh out-loud comedy, Pitch Perfect. The outrageous and irreverently fun Pitch Perfect, packed with deleted and extended scenes, line-o-ramas, music videos and more, will be available on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, DVD, On Demand and Digital Download on December 18, 2012 from Universal Studios Home Entertainment.
When Beca leads this acoustic singing group out of their traditional arrangements and perfect harmonies into all-new mashups, they fight to climb their way to the top of college music competitions. This could wind up either the coolest thing they’ll ever do or the most insane, and it will probably be a little of both. The Pitch Perfect ensemble includes Anna Kendrick (Twilight, Up in the Air), Anna Camp (The Help), Brittany Snow (Hairspray) and Rebel Wilson (Bridesmaids, Bachelorette).
Pitch Perfect is “completely hilarious and completely original” – Dean Richards, WGN-TV-WGN America, and is the must-own movie that you’ll want to watch over and over again, just in time for the holidays!
