We’re so gonna miss you when you’re gone. In a new clip from ‘Pitch Perfect 2,’ the ladies gather around a campfire and sing a seriously emotional version of ‘Cups,’ a perfect homage to the first movie. Watch here!
I was all for the Beyonce power ballad, but this has blown that out of the water. (Sorry, Bey.) After Beca (Anna Kendrick) auditioned with an incredible performance of “Cups” in Pitch Perfect, it’s absolutely adorable that the whole gang decided to perform a very slow version in the sequel. Watch it here.
‘Pitch Perfect 2’: Full Version Of ‘Cups’ Will Surely Make You Cry
“You know when I look back on this, I won’t remember performing and competing. I’m going to remember you weirdos,” Beca says in the clip to the whole gang — Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson), Chloe (Brittany Snow), Aubrey (Anna Camp), Lilly (Hana Mae Lee), Stacie (Alexis Knapp), and Cynthia (Ester Dean).
With that, Chloe begins singing “Cups,” and let’s just say — you’ll get chills.
Why ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ Will Work
While many sequels aren’t so successful, 29-year-old Anna was actually very nervous for trying to make this one work.
She was “getting understandably nervous because comedy sequels are really hard to pull off,” she told New York Times. However, under Elizabeth Banks‘ directing, and after a lot of thinking, she thought it’d be good idea.
“The machinery was so much more present on the second one. There’s worrying over product placement and how many deluxe-edition albums are we going to be able to pull out of this one and heightened choreography,” she said.
Pitch Perfect 2 opens May 15 in theaters and basically, we couldn’t be more excited. Are you ready? Do you love this version of “Cups?” Let us know!
