Last night (April 12), a new clip of the highly anticipated Pitch Perfect 2 made its debut during the MTV Movie Awards, and things got “aca-awesome” in the newly unveiled scene. The clip was introduced by several of the film’s leading ladies and premier members of the a Capella group, The Barden Bellas, including Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson, Anna Camp, and Hailee Steinfeld. In the new footage, the Bellas can be seen engaging in an ultimate a Capella battle to the death.
The footage from the film reveals that Pitch Perfect 2 is paying tribute to the first film by having the a Capella groups engage in yet another “Riff Off.” This time, the Barden Bellas are facing off against a much larger base of competitors including some international talents. With a theme of “90s hip-hop jamz,” the groups battle through a variety of hip-hop classics. Some of the revisited hits include Montell Jordan’s “This Is How We Do It” and A Tribe Called Quest’s “Scenario” led by Rebel Wilson’s Fat Amy.
Before introducing the Pitch Perfect 2 preview, Wilson had an announcement to make. The comedic actress strutted her way onstage during the event wearing a pair of high waisted black pants with “THINK” emblazoned across the back, a bedazzled and fringed black bra, and a pair of luxurious angel wings attached to her back. “I actually want to say something from my heart tonight,” Wilson admitted before pulling out an envelope and reading an apology to the “Dear People of the World.”
She apologized for the “moment when I accidentally showed my girl power to the President of the United States,” going on to clarify “by girl power, I do mean my vagina.” It has been alleged that the Barden Bellas are disgraced after Wilson’s character Fat Amy experiences a serious wardrobe malfunction during a performance in front of the President. As such, her speech at the MTV Movie Awards seems to come from Fat Amy’s heart. Or it came directly from her girl power, that remains to be seen.
Wilson has also revealed that she would be game to appear in a third Pitch Perfect film, though she is unsure if fellow lead character Anna Kendrick would be rejoining the cast. The first film in the Pitch Perfect saga was released in 2012 and was incredibly well-received. Shortly after making its debut, Pitch Perfect 2 was announced. The sequel will be making a May 15 debut.
