We Came in Like a Wrecking Ball... to Watch Pitch Perfect 2

I was pretty nervous about Pitch Perfect 2; I left the first movie, immediately turned to my sister and said, “Can we go back in and see that again?” My adoration, coupled with the fact that sequels are rarely anywhere close to as good as the originals (and that PP2 was getting a ton of hype but mixed reviews), didn’t… » 5/15/15 3:00pm 5/15/15 3:00pm

Anna Kendrick is Writing a Book of Funnies

Cool Girl Anna Kendrick is now adding the title of ‘published author’ to her résumé. The Pitch Perfect 2 actress has just signed a deal to write a collection of humorous personal essays for Touchstone. Kendrick is known for her clever tweets and scene-stealing wit so a book of LOLs sounds like a pretty good move.

Rebel Wilson Would Go 'Psycho' If She Tried to Be Funny All the Time

Rebel Wilson is on the cover of April's Elle Australia, looking smokin' in graphic prints a bold red lip. (Truly, Rebel, this is your lipstick shade—never let it go.) In released excerpts from the interview, she discusses Tyra Banks, nailing it in one take and the importance of allowing herself to not be funny every… » 3/19/15 1:50pm 3/19/15 1:50pm

Here's Your First Behind-the-Scenes Look at Pitch Perfect 2

If you can't wait until May to get your fix of Pitch Perfect 2, this segment from the Today Show should help to tide you over for a little while.

Hands in, Aca-Bitches: Pitch Perfect Gets Sequel

The Aca-Tramps from Pitch Perfect are headed back to the theaters in 2015. Kay Cannon is returning as the screenwriter (yes!), but nothing is confirmed beyond that — though it's hard to imagine the cast would pass up the opportunity to reprise their rolls in a Cannon-penned script. Besides, what else does that cast of… » 4/17/13 10:30am 4/17/13 10:30am

Anna Kendrick Blows Away Dave Letterman with Her Awesome Cup Playing Skills

Thanks to YouTube, cup playing has gone from a thing you did at summer camp in middle school (at least it's a thing that I did at summer camp in middle school [Ed: I've never even HEARD of this!]) to a full-blown trend showing up in TV, movies and on actual albums. In fact, actress Anna Kendrick is such a fan of cup… » 10/05/12 5:15pm 10/05/12 5:15pm

Pitch Perfect Hits Almost All the Right Notes

I don't know what kind of movie you're hoping to see if you go to Pitch Perfect, the Anna Kendrick-starring comedy about college a cappella tournaments, but I can almost guarantee that it won't be what you expect. At least it wasn't for me. I went into the theater thinking I was about to take in a cross between Glee » 9/28/12 5:15pm 9/28/12 5:15pm

Here's Rebel Wilson Stealing The Pitch Perfect Trailer

Sorta willing to bet that even Anna Kendrick leading a chorus of girls in Blackstreet's "No Diggity" can't beat anything Bridesmaids' criminally-underused Rebel Wilson is gonna do in this movie, which looks like a Glee/Bring It On mashup of epic proportions. All that's missing is Will Schuester's Jheri Curl and… » 6/16/12 1:00pm 6/16/12 1:00pm

Women Make Dads Out Of Dudes With Deep Voices

Men with deeper, more "masculine" voices have more children than those with higher-pitched voices, according to a report from Biology Letters. Researchers from Harvard conducted a study on the Hazda, a group of hunter-gatherers in Tanzania, because the Hadza live much like our ancestors did, without the trappings of… » 9/26/07 10:30am 9/26/07 10:30am
