As she prepares for the December 22 release of Pitch Perfect 3 — the third and final installment of the highly successful franchise, which follows an all-female a cappella group—the actress is not ready to say goodbye to her star-making role.
Elizabeth Banks, who directed the franchise’s second installment and produced all three films in the series, adds that she’s “very proud” of the franchise—and optimistic that its success will open doors for other filmmakers who want to create female-driven stories.
“What I love most about this movie is it stars a diverse, interesting group of women who are empowering and live their dreams while being true to themselves,” said Banks, who also reprises her role as the inappropriate a cappella commentator Gail in Pitch Perfect 3.
The seminal Alfred Hitchcock thriller shocked audiences in 1960 with its jarring shower scene and ultimate plot twist, but it won’t horrify modern viewers the same way.
Speaking of old movies that aren’t scary-scary by modern standards, Brian De Palma’s adaptation of this Stephen King novel about a bullied high-school girl with a zealous mother is yet another standard-bearer that scared people at the time of its release.
