Thanks Lilian for the HQs
If you’re one of the many “Pitch Perfect” lovers hoping the sequel will be as aca-mazing as the first film, Elizabeth Banks has your back.
The actress got behind the camera to direct “Pitch Perfect 2” and has been keeping fans in mind as she’s now editing the film ahead of its release next May.
“It’s very exciting — and harrowing, and nerve-wracking,” she laughed. “I really want to put out a great movie that fans love.”
Directing the follow-up to the 2012 musical hit, Banks told CBS News, was “a really amazing experience.”
“I loved working with all the collaborators, from the actors to the screenwriters to the set designer to the [director of photography] — all across the board I just had amazing partners, and it was that collaborative process that was very gratifying,” she said. “And I liked being the boss!”
One of the themes of “Pitch Perfect 2” is the transition from college to adulthood, Banks revealed.
“The first movie was about that transition into college, everybody was an incoming freshman, and now we’re telling a story about that transitional time when you have to leave the nest and planning for your life and what your ambitions are, goals for your future, and having to say goodbye to the friends you made and go out into the big, bad world,” she explained. Singing, naturally, will be involved as well — “While making a lot of music with their mouths.”
