It has been a few years since the Barden Bellas graduated from college, and while they have largely managed to stay in touch, they have not performed together at musical World Championships for a very long time. Needless to say, with their various career ventures not going as well as they had hoped and the media still keeping a close eye on them and willing them to fail, they are missing their beloved a cappella sing-a-longs a lot right now.
Beca Mitchell (Anna Kendrick) has quit her job out of boredom, Flo Fuentes (Chrissie Fit) is serving on a city juice stall, Chloe Beale (Brittany Snow) is struggling to get into vet school and Fat Amy (Rebel Wilson) is now a not so popular impersonator called Fat Amy Winehouse. But maybe they can give their musical passions a boost with a new kind of show...
Aubrey Posen (Anna Camp) has an idea of trying to obtain an invite to perform at a competition show in Europe set up by the United Service Organizations (USO) in support of the US Army soldiers. It's not like they have anything else to do at the moment so the group are all for it. However, armed only with their voices, they have quite the competition as many of their rivals are bands with actual instruments.

Banks apologised for comments she made at a Women In Film awards event earlier this week, when she said that Spielberg had never directed a film with a female lead.
The 43 year old star of The Hunger Games, among others, made the comments at a Women In Film awards ceremony on Wednesday (June 14th). She was awarded an excellence in film prize at the ceremony, and used her acceptance speech to highlight the hot topic of gender equality in Hollywood.

The actress was being honored at the Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards
It seems Hollywood superstar Elizabeth Banks wasn’t always as sought out as actress as she currently is and was in fact told she needed to change her looks if she wanted to make it in the industry. The Hunger Games star was allegedly urged to undergo plastic surgery by her first acting agent.
While being honored at the Women In Film Crystal + Lucy Awards earlier this week, the 43-year-old actress revealed a piece of advice she chose not take when she started out in Hollywood in 1997.
The actress will move behind the camera and direct on the franchise revival.
Some may know her as Effie Trinket in the 'Hunger Games' film series; other may have seen her in the more recent 'Power Rangers' big screen adaptation. What you may not know about Elizabeth Banks however is that the actress is planning on moving behind the camera and sitting in the Director's Chair for a planned 'Charlie's Angels' revival at Sony.
Elizabeth Banks is working on bringing the franchise back
Originally coming to viewers as a small screen crime drama between 1976 and 1981, 'Charlie's Angels' enjoyed some big success. Then came a whole slew of botched attempts of reviving the franchise, before a film adaptation in 2000 that featured Cameron Diaz, Drew Barrymore and Lucy Liu as the three leading Angels.

Zack Taylor (Ludi Lin), Kimberly Hart (Naomi Scott), Billy Cranston (RJ Cyler), Trini (Becky G) and Jason Lee Scott (Dacre Montgomery) are five kids with a lot in common; they're all high-schoolers with pretty screwed up lives and going through a lot of the kind of problems that regular teenagers go through. That is until one day, when they stumble across what looks like a long-abandoned spaceship which they somehow manage to accidentally open. Once inside the ship, it soon becomes clear that they are not alone and are very much trapped. It's not the most friendly welcome to their new master as they could have, but they soon realise that Zordon and his robot minion Alpha 5 mean no harm.
In fact, they have chosen these very kids to unite together and become their Power Rangers; superheroes on which the world depends. Of course, they don't believe that they really have super powers at first, but after a series of minor incidents, they are forced to accept their newfound destiny - and quickly because a deadly force is already on the rise led by the dastardly Rita Repulsa.
'Power Rangers' (sometimes known as 'Saban's Power Rangers') is the third and newest movie from the superhero franchise, coming 22 years after 'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie'. It has been directed by by Dean Israelite ('Project Almanac') with a screenplay written by the Academy Award nominated John Gatins ('Flight', 'Real Steel'), and it is set to be released in theatres on March 24th 2017.
The 'Power Rangers' reminded Elizabeth Banks of that 'team' aesthetic.
There's something about the idea of a 'team' in movies that people can't get enough of. Whether it's 'The Avengers' or 'Scooby-Doo', there's an appeal to watching a group of friends band together to save the world, and that's one of the things Elizabeth Banks loved most about working on 'Power Rangers'.
Elizabeth Banks plays Rita Repulsa in 'Power Rangers'
Everyone loves a lone-wolf, but its the famous 'teams' of history that tend to stick in our mind. They're there in every genre; 'Stand By Me', 'The Lord of the Rings', 'The Three Musketeers', 'Harry Potter'; and 'Power Rangers' are taking that theme to its fullest extent with the eagerly anticipated reboot directed by Dean Israelite.

It's the re-boot we've waited 20 years for.
'Power Rangers' returns in an all new re-boot produced by original series creator Haim Saban. Everything from the costumes to the characters have been given an upgrade, so this isn't quite like the TV show and subsequent films you remember from the 90s.
No more lycra for these Power Rangers
'Saban's Power Rangers' is the third movie in the franchise after 'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie' and 'Turbo: A Power Rangers Movie' and a re-boot of the whole series. Directed by Dean Israelite ('Project Almanac') with a screenplay by Oscar nominated John Gatins ('Flight', 'Real Steel'), the movie stars the likes of pop singer Becky G and Primetime Emmy nominated actress Elizabeth Banks.

Go Go Power Rangers! Billy Cranston, Jason Lee Scott, Kimberly Hart, Trini Kwan and Zack Taylor are five kids who are all at Angel Grove high school together. Not one of them is particularly popular and they find themselves being brought together through an equal disdain for the rest of their classmates.
What the five new friends don't realise is that they are soon to become important to everyone on the planet. When the group go off adventuring, they find themselves in an old quarry and uncover the secret that will change all their lives. When they hear sirens, the group flee the area and head back to their homes but in the days following they all realise that their physique has changed significantly and their muscular strength is far superior to any normal human. As they begin to experiment with their new powers, they find they can fight, jump and withstand huge amounts of force.
Their new personal changes are not the only thing the teenagers have to think about, they're also faced with information that will cause a great darkness to be cast over the world. Their little town of Angel Grove is being threatened by a deadly alien force lead by the wicked Rita Repulsa. Though they're young, the five heroes must team together and defend their town - and ultimately the rest of the world - from Repulsa.

The red carpet showed us just how alike Banks and Trinket really are.
By far the most visually stunning character in the whole 'Hunger Games' franchise is, of course, Effie Trinket; the outrageously dressed capitol chaperone brought to life by Elizabeth Banks in every movie. And it seems some of that magic has rubbed off on Banks on the red carpet too.
Effie's unique style doesn't stop at the set of this movie series; Banks has been turning heads at events throughout the year in get-ups reminiscent of the role that brought her to international attention. Now that the series has finally ended with the box office smash hit 'The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2', we hope that Banks continues to work that weirdness. Here's a few of our favourites:

Some of the cast from the billion-dollar franchise would return if any more books were written
Jennifer Lawrence has stood as Katniss Everdeen against the Capitol for the final time in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 and, while she has not spoken of her desire to reprise her role for further films, many of The Hunger Games cast has.
J-Law takes on Katniss Everdeen for the final time
The hugely successful franchise - which has brought in a staggering $2billion at box offices worldwide - is based on Suzanne Collins’ dystopian books and came to its natural end at the same point the novels did.
