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.

While talking to E! Online on the red carpet at the SAG Awards, Tina Fey mentioned that she thought Mariah Carey could star in her Mean Girls musical. (She told EW of her plans to turn her hit film into a musical back in our September cover story.)

“Maybe she can play Amy Poehler’s part,” Fey joked, after discussing Mariah’s knowledge of the film.

Mariah Carey as Mrs. George? She certainly has the singing voice for the role. But who else would we cast in our perfect production of Mean Girls? READ FULL STORY
