If you need more Glee-tastic rhythms in your life, then you're gonna love Pitch Perfect when it opens in theaters October 5 (watch the trailer here). The film stars Anna Kendrick (Camp, Up in the Air), Anna Camp (The Good Wife, True Blood, House of Lies), Rebel Wilson (Bachelorette), and Brittany Snow as college women engaged in a battle of the sexes with the rival guys' show choir. Jason Moore (Broadway's Avenue Q, if you recall), the film's director, told The Advocate in a recent interview that singer Ester Dean plays a lesbian who is initially mistaken for a man.
"You've got 10 girls, one of them's got to be a lesbian, you know. There's some funny running jokes about her, but I believe that we should be able to make fun of ourselves and everybody should be made fun of. That's comedy to me, no one's above reproach."
To get a sense of the main characters, check out this video that features the cast covering Nicki Minaj's "Starship" with a little help from a whole bunch of YouTubers.
