'Pitch Perfect 2' star and YouTube sensation Flula goes Christmas caroling at EW

Pitch Perfect 2 features a number of new faces, among them YouTube sensation and DJ Flula Borg. He’s the lead male vocalist for the Bellas’ biggest rivals, the very German (and very tough) Das Sound Machine.

'Cups' returns in 'Pitch Perfect 2' trailer


In case that “Cups” song wasn’t enough of an earworm, it’s back again in the trailer for Pitch Perfect 2 with the Barden Bellas giving audiences a sweet, a cappella (aca-duh) version. And then the fart noise comes.

Yes, EW‘s cover stars, the Bellas, are back and headed for the World Championships, where they are once again the underdogs. Hailee Steinfeld is on hand as a new addition to the group, but a lot of familiar faces are back, including Benji (Ben Platt), who is still doing magic, and Bumper (Adam DeVine) who is still being obnoxious. In the trailer’s final moments he asks Fat Amy if she wants to have sex later. She says no, but she winks.

(Spoiler alert? They do get it on.)


10 Things You Need to Know About 'Pitch Perfect 2'

EW’s latest cover is an all-access, exclusive peek behind the scenes of next summer’s highly anticipated musical comedy Pitch Perfect 2. The movie takes place 3 years after the first film, with the Barden Bellas ruling the collegiate a cappella world.

Casting Net: Josh Brolin to voice Marvel's supervillain Thanos; Plus, Anna Camp for 'Pitch Perfect 2', more

• Josh Brolin (No Country for Old Men) is reportedly voicing a CGI Thanos in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. He’ll be joining fellow voice actors Bradley Cooper (Rocket Raccoon) and Vin Diesel (Groot) in the James Gunn-directed pic, which also stars Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt, and Lee Pace. Thanos, a nihilistic purple supervillain, was introduced briefly in the post-credits sequence of The Avengers and is expected to be the main foe in Avengers: The Age of Ultron (May 1, 2015), which will be a more prominent role than his Guardians part. EW’s Darren Franich actually proposed Brolin as an option to voice the part back in 2012 — although folks seemed to prefer Gary Oldman, “anybody from Game of Thrones,” Ian McShane, and Ray Winstone to the W. star.
