During NBC's pre-game coverage for Super Bowl XLIX, Pitch Perfect 2 director and star Elizabeth Banks showed up at the big game, bringing with her a new behind-the-scenes clip from her highly-anticipated sequel, which, surprisingly enough, does have a football connection. Green Bay Packers players Clay Matthews III, David Bakhtiari, TJ Lang, Josh Sitton, Don Barclay and Jordan Rodgers appear in the sequel as themselves, during an a cappella competition, as we catch glimpses of new footage along with the players themselves getting ready for their big scene.
Unfortunately, the sequel will not have an official Super Bowl commercial during the big game, but the first trailer was released back in November. It remains to be seen when we'll get our next glimpse of footage from Pitch Perfect 2, which brings back the Barden Bellas as they attempt to win an international a cappella competition that no American team has ever won before. With the May 15 release getting closer and closer, we could see the second trailer sooner rather than later.
Pitch Perfect stars Anna Kendrick, Skylar Astin, Brittany Snow, Anna Camp, Rebel Wilson, Adam DeVine and Alexis Knapp returns, with Hailee Steinfeld joining the cast for the sequel. When the young actress joined the cast in April 2014, it was reported that she will headline future sequels after Pitch Perfect 2, but little has been confirmed about her character. While we wait to learn more about the future sequels, take a look at this behind-the-scenes clip from Pitch Perfect 2.
