Dignity Trailer: Pitch Perfect 3!

What to do? What to do?

The teaser trailer for Pitch Perfect 3 offers a look at how the former Bellas choose to deal with that question – and it looks like an intriguing variation on what has gone before.

Pitch Perfect 3 opens on December 22nd.

Table 19 is a lighter-than-air confection about a girl who was broken up with via text and went from being her oldest friend’s maid of honor to one of the people at table 19 – the people invited through a sense of obligation but not actually expected to attend.

Eloise McGarry (Anna Kendrick) was to be Francie’s (Rya Meyers) maid of honor until Francie’s brother, Teddy (Wyatt Russell), broke up with her via text. As a result, she is stuck at the ‘random’ table with others who should have RSVP’d NO – but not before sending a gift from the wedding registry.

Check out the first trailer after the jump. The Hollars opens in New York and Los Angeles on August 26th.

TABLE 19
TABLE 19

Eloise got dumped – by text – the night before she was to be maid on honor at the same wedding where he’s best man. Instead of staying home and just sending a gift from the couple’s registry, she’s decided to go anyway. It’s the same wedding – the same celebration, right?

Check out the trailer for Mr. Right after the break. Mr. Right stars Anna Kendrick and Sam Rockwell and will be in theaters and On Demand & Digital HD on April 8th.

Pitch Perfect 2 Is Aca-Frikkin Awesome!

Pitch Perfect 2

It’s not often you get a sequel that surpasses the original, but it’s happened with the aca-frikkin’ awesome Pitch Perfect 2.

Written by Kay Cannon (who wrote the first one) and directed by first-timer Elizabeth Banks, PP2 is sharper edged, more focused and has refined the vulgar-to-sweet ratio to a tee.

Behind The Scenes: Into The Woods – From Stage To Screen!

INTO THE WOODS

Although Disney’s Into The Woods is doing well in theaters, it was considered to be a risky move – taking a three-hour hit Broadway musical and turning it into a two-hour movie. Plus, there was the fact that Into The Woods is not the lightest exploration of fairy tales.

On the plus side, director Rob Marshall was an old hand at adapting Broadway hits into movie form – his Chicago nabbed a few Oscars® – and the screenplay for Into The Woods was adapted by James Lapine, who, with Stephen Sondheim, created the original musical.

So, what did it take to take Into The Woods from stage to screen? Follow the jump to check out a video dealing with that very topic.
