The international trailer for the action flick was released on Tuesday, and it features a ton of new footage.
The film, starring Scarlett Johansson as the title character, is about a woman who is kidnapped by the drug cartel. The cartel tries to use her to smuggle a special drug, but the package ruptures inside of her, giving her “superpowers”, in a sense. Morgan Freeman portrays a neuroscientist. The film was written and directed by Luc Besson, and will be released on August 1.

Right now there is no confirmation that Bumper’s Treblemakers will also be making a return to challenge the Barden Bellas. However, bringing back this fan-favorite character seems to suggest this might be the case.
Elizabeth Banks will direct, produce, and possibly star in the sequel with Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, and Brittany Snow all set to reprise their roles. Pitch Perfect 2 will sing and dance it’s way into theaters on May 15, 2015. Stay tuned for more news as production continues!
Universal Pictures is always a very busy studio between developing new projects and promoting projects that will be reaching audiences in theaters. Today, at CinemaCon studio chairman Adam Fogelsonannounced a few exciting things about sequels for Pitch Perfect and Snow White and the Huntsman.
First, it was announced that a sequel for Pitch Perfect is officially under development and the studio is hoping for a 2015 release date. Pitch Perfect starred Rebel Wilson, Anna Kendrick, Anna Camp, Skylar Astin, Brittany Snow, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Hanna Mae Lee, Elizabeth Banks, and Ben Platt and was directed by Jason Moore. As of right now there is no official word on if these cast members or Moore will be returning to work on the sequel, but the project is still in early development so we should hear more later on.
Additionally, it was announced that the studio is also hoping for a 2015 release date for the Snow White and the Huntsman sequel. Back in December, Kristen Stewart stated that she will be reprising her role in the sequel. However, there has not been any news about the possibility of Chris Hemsworth and Sam Claflin will also be returning. Fogelson confirmed last month that director Rupert Sanders will not be returning to work on the sequel.
