Not pictured on the poster is funny lady Elizabeth Banks, who serves as a producer on the film. (Interestingly enough, she earned her first producer credit working on Bruce Willis' 2009 sci-fi thriller "Surrogates.") Banks, fresh off starring as the villainous Effie in the blockbuster "The Hunger Games," spoke about "Pitch Perfect's" ensemble cast last year. "We're definitely catching our actors at such amazing points in their career. I liken it to when I did 'Wet Hot American Summer,'" she told Entertainment Weekly, referencing the 2001 cult flick that she made with Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Molly Shannon, and more. "As a young actor, this is the exact type of movie you want to do. It's like going to camp with a bunch of your friends and making each other laugh, and singing and dancing. There's nothing better than that."
The finished product, Banks said, will be a fun movie musical. "You could compare it to 'Rock of Ages.' You could compare it to 'Mamma Mia!,' because it's being made by the same studio [Universal Pictures]," she told the magazine. "Yes, there is some singing and dancing in our movie. But essentially, we're making a coming of age comedy — a very classic tale." Are you excited to see "Pitch Perfect"?
Check out the movie's trailer when it premieres exclusively on Yahoo! Movies on Thursday, June 14, at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT.
