Cool Videos: Anna Kendrick performs the "cup song" from Pitch Perfect in new music video

Apr. 16, 2013by: Paul Shirey

I still have yet to see PITCH PERFECT, the college-age Glee pic starring Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wison, Brittany Snow, and Anna Camp, but it ended up being a pretty big hit for the intended demographic (a sequel is currently in the works). In the film, Kendrick's character performs an a capella version of Lulu and the Lampshades Youre Gonna Miss Me" which has spawned a cavalcade of YouTube inspired copycats and requests for the actress to perform it at every guest appearance she makes. The video is well shot, but had nothing to do with Kendrick's character from the film, serving as a standalone music video, rather than a tie-in to the film.

Kendrick is a lovable actress with some fine comedy skills and she's come a long way. I thought she was great in Jason Reitman's UP IN THE AIR and SCOTT PILGRIM VS. THE WORLD (I'll forgive her for TWILIGHT) and she's got a lot of potential to take the lead, especially in the comedy genre.

Grab a cup:

Kendrick will next be seen in the apocalypse comedy RAPTURE-PALOOZA on May 10, 2013 and GET A JOB with Bryan Cranston and Christopher Mintz-Plasse.

Extra Tidbit: I'd love to see what sort of mischief Kendrick and Anna Faris could get into with a movie team-up.

Pitch Perfect was ok

It was surprisingly funny and as much a parody of the whole Glee-Acapella thing as much as it was a poster child for it. The humor was fresh and the music, well, it couldve been worse. It's worth checking out

How stupid, why would you want everyone to think of you as the cup person? If I was her I would have said no thanks to doing that video.

What an ignorant comment. I don't think anyone, but maybe you will think of her as "the cup person". I think of her as an Academy Nominated actress who picks awesome roles aside from Twilight. Check out her work in Up In the Air, Pitch Perfect, 50/50, and Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and then judge her. Not to mention she does awesome stuff like appear in Ben Fold's new video.......yeah I have a crush on her.

She's so cute.

She looks like a young Kate Beckinsale. And I'm a big fan of both. :)
