Hot on the heels of its big Super Bowl spot featuring the Green Bay Packers earlier this month, a second full-length trailer has debuted for Pitch Perfect 2. The Barden Bellas will be back in action this May as they look to take on the world as Mighty Ducks 2 style as Team USA in the A Capella World Championships held in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Perhaps the film’s use of “Wrecking Ball” is a metaphor to represent the U.S.? As I’ve made mention in the past when the first trailer for Pitch Perfect 2 released, the movie reminds me of Rocky IV. And this trailer continues to validate my point.
Let me break it down for you in a way we can all understand, through GIFs:
The Bellas become too comfortable with their place in the world of a capella and a new challenger comes along, looking to take them down a notch
Americans embarrass themselves on a public stage for the world to see
A training session/montage will take place outside the confines of Barden University
They’ll discover who they are as a team to overcome their fears
The two titans of a capella, the Bellas and Das Sound Machine face off at the World Championships
In the end, the Bellas win only to deliver a message of peace and unifying the world.
The end. Watch the original trailer for Rocky IV below.

“The girls are now graduating seniors. They’re coming to the end of their time as Bellas and figuring out how to sort of leave the nest and the comfort of each other’s friendship and figure out what they’re going to do with the rest of their lives.”
