'Pitch Perfect 2' boys get patriotic for Fourth of July

This Fourth of July, Elizabeth Banks is celebrating aca-America.

The director of Pitch Perfect 2 posted a video to her Facebook page of Skylar Astin and Ben Platt, who play Jesse and Benji in the movies, singing “America the Beautiful.”

The pair, dressed in maroon blazers–the signature for the Treblemakers, Barden University’s all-male a cappella group and rival to the Bellas–sing with an American flag behind them. Nothing says sings America quite like these two.

The video ends with a message: “Happy Fourth of July from Pitch Perfect 2.”

Would the Bellas like to challenge, perhaps bringing back “Party in the USA” as seen in the first flick? Keep your eyes aca-peeled. For now: READ FULL STORY

Skylar Astin in for 'Pitch Perfect 2' -- PHOTO

Things we now know about the Pitch Perfect sequel: Skylar Astin will be involved!

We knew it was pretty much a guarantee, but thanks to the above aca-amazing photo, uploaded by Benji (Ben Platt) himself, we now have photo proof of the knowledge Jesse and Beca’s love story isn’t over yet — or, even if it is, the two are ready to belt out some sad breakup tracks because Jesse will be back for round two. “What better way to spend my first day on set for #PitchPerfect2 than by doing a scene with my roomie @SkylarAstin,” Platt tweeted.

Things we still don’t know: Much of the plot information of Pitch Perfect 2, which will include Pitch Perfect alums Rebel Wilson and Anna Kendrick, as well as newbies such as Hailee Steinfeld. They’ll be graduating seniors this time around, but will the film once again center on a collegiate a cappella competition? An all-singing summer camp they want to attend? What if the whole thing is a fever dream of Fat Amy’s?

Things we will never get tired of discussing: How cute this photo is.

Pitch Perfect 2 will be released May 15, 2015.

Rebel Wilson posts the first photo from the set of 'Pitch Perfect 2'

I hope you have your pitch pipes ready, because things are about to get aca-mazing.

Rebel Wilson tweeted out the first photo from the set of Pitch Perfect 2, and even though it doesn’t feature Anna Kendrick or any of those Barden Bellas uniforms, it’s full of familiar faces. Specifically, Wilson is joined by Ester Dean, Brittany Snow, Kelley Jakle, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee, and the film’s director, Elizabeth Banks.
