Teen-pop musicals are a big deal right now, with films like Step Up continuing to pump out entries. The latest one to break the mold and earn some dough is Pitch Perfect, starring the now popular Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson. The film was smartly marketed, which resulted in a casual roll-out to more and more theaters, eventually stealing some thunder from other more well known titles.
I’m not fan the biggest fan of the genre, so I stayed away, but our very own Jonathan Lack had this to say about the film in his review:
Pitch Perfect has enough pleasures to overcome its failings, even if the margin is fairly slim at times. It is worth watching, but prepare to be bothered by how much of its potential goes unrealized.
The film will be coming in a Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack. The following bonus material has been confirmed:
- Deleted and Extended Scenes
- Alternate Scenes
- Line-O-Rama improvisational montage
- Starships, the Pitch Perfect music video
- Backstage at Barden profiles & interviews
- On the Set: Burrito Drive By! behind-the-scenes featurette
- A Look Inside first-look featurette
- Audio Commentary with Director Jason Moore and Producers Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman
- Audio Commentary with Producer Paul Brooks
Pitch Perfect will street on December 18th, 2012.
