Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson and Hailee Steinfeld star in the sequel to the hit music comedy, which marks the directorial debut of actor-producer Elizabeth Banks, and is again scripted by Kay Cannon. It’s three years since the events of the first movie and college a cappella group the Barden Bellas remain consistently the best in their field. However, when a disastrous wardrobe malfunction graphically reveals ‘Fat Amy”s (Wilson) preference for ‘going commando’ to President Obama, the Bellas are barred from continuing their victory tour and are replaced by German outfit Das Sound Machine (led by Birgitte Hjort Sørensen and Flula Borg). There is a glimmer of hope for the Bellas, though: if they can win the World Championships, they can return to competing nationally. But will their efforts be undermined by Beca (Kendrick) devoting more and more of her time to her secret internship in a recording studio, or can new girl Emily (Steinfeld) redeem the Bellas’ fortunes?
