Music Video: Anna Kendrick - Cups (Pitch Perfect’s “When I’m Gone”) (Director’s Cut) | Vevo
Accidental pop star.
Apparently Pitch Perfect was such a hit, today the album “More from Pitch Perfect” was released in the iTunes store. In the 8-track EP, the lead song is the Anna Kendrick “Cups” extended remix we previously posted along with a few other original songs used for the film’s soundtrack. Perhaps this is a sign the sequel in plans might gain some traction soon?

Anna Kendrick is coming to a radio near you beginning March 26th - Nearly everyone loves Pitch Perfect. With a solid box office release, the film has become a smash since it hit Blu-Ray and DVD in December (so much so that Skylar Astin claims Universal is in very early talks for a sequel).
But among the impressive numbers, it’s Anna Kendrick’s audition performance in the film “Cups” that has become one of the most popular. Now, the song has been remixed and is scheduled to hit radio stations next month beginning on March 26th. Check out the first listen of the single above.
Merry Christmas everyone. I got you this news item.
coreythedopest asked: I find it funny that "Pitch Perfect" would poke fun at "Glee". I mean, without the popularity of "Glee", they probably would never have made "Pitch Perfect". Not saying that "Glee" is a good show, but just an interesting aside.
This isn’t the only shot ‘Pitch Perfect’ takes at ‘Glee’ if I’m remembering correctly, and in the modern cultural landscape they do seem intrinsically linked (especially considering ‘Glee’ may have swiped a song from a real group featured in the ‘Pitch Perfect’ book).
But I’m not entirely sure the movie wouldn’t exist without ‘Glee.’ Just by the timeline, the book came out in 2008, Elizabeth Banks acquired the film rights to it a few months later, but Fox didn’t air a sneak preview of ‘Glee’ until spring 2009. Also, this genre of college-club movies isn’t new and you could argue that both ‘Pitch Perfect’ and ‘Glee’ draw inspiration from it.
That said, the popularity of ‘Glee’ probably made it easier for Universal to greenlight ‘Pitch Perfect’ in 2011. I mean, they both owe it all to ‘High School Musical’ anyway, of course.
‘Hotel Transylvania’ and ‘Looper’ both did great for Sony this weekend. But here’s what I really care about …
Universal Pictures released “Pitch Perfect” in just 335 and audiences are singing their song as it made $5.2 million over three day. That’s an absolutely knockout $15,522 per screen average. “Perfect” expands to over 2,700 theaters nationwide on Friday.
In honor of ‘Pitch Perfect’ coming out today (in select cities) here’s my college group Orange Appeal performing Phil Collins’ “In The Air” circa 2008.
