Pitch Perfect pulled in a tidy sum this fall, bringing in a little over $61 million at the U.S. box office. If you missed the flick over the last few months, you’ll be able to catch it much sooner than I would have guessed. Universal Studios Home Entertainment is bringing the whole musical gang to Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download on December 18.
That’s a quick turnaround for a flick that only hit select cities at the end of September, but it’s good news for anyone hoping to score the film as a holiday gift. If you missed the boat entirely with this awesome musical endeavor, Pitch Perfect follows Beca (Anna Kendrick), a reluctant college freshman who ends up joining a ragtag group of acoustical singers who are competing for the right to sing at Nationals. If you are into pop music, you’ll get a lot of it in this comedy.
Fans who spring for a Blu-ray or DVD copy of the flick will also get quite a few bonus features. Some of the extras are the basic deleted, extended, and alternate scenes which are generally available with comedies and are a whole lot of fun. I do appreciate that a few of the extras will focus on some of the actors and actresses still in character, including “Burrito Drive By!” with Fat Amy and interviews with Benji and Bumper. All in all, it looks to be a pretty nicely put together set—which isn’t too shabby for a Blu-ray that retails at $34.98 and is already available for pre-order at a sale price of $24.49.
