Fat Amy really put it best when she said, "Even though some of you are pretty thin, you all have fat hearts, and that's what matters." The first "Pitch Perfect" was packed with so much heart, sass and fun times had by all. Following the wonderful news that Elizabeth Banks is going to direct the "Pitch Perfect" sequel, we now have our first two casting confirmations. Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson, although were expected to return, have now officially been locked in.

Kay Cannon, who scribed the first film, is back to pen the sequel as well. Banks not only had a small but wonderful role in the first film, but she also was on as a producer. She was big reason why the first film happened in the first place, so I'm really looking forward to seeing her make her directorial debut with this. I really like consistency, with sequels especially, and having four of the main players back is a great start.

The first film grossed $113 million on a budget of only $17 million. It was so fresh and clever and packed with a lot of talented actors that can actually sing. I literally couldn't count how many times I've seen the first film and it has cemented itself as one of my favorite comedies of all-time. I can't wait to see what new adventures are in store for the Barden Bellas.

Are you excited for the sequel? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
