‘The Last 5 Years’, the new musical starring Anna Kendrick, gets its first clip

The Last 5 Years

With a filmography that includes Up In The Air, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, and End of Watch, actress Anna Kendrick has been seen in a number of genres over the past few years. One of her more notable entries was 2012’s Pitch Perfect, which saw her make a foray into musicals, which she followed up with by signing on to the movie adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical Into The Woods. However, Kendrick will also be seen in The Last 5 Years, an adaptation of the stage musical that follows a couple over the course of their five-year affair. Kendrick takes on the role of Cathy Hyatt in the film, co-starring alongside Betsy Wolfe, who played the role in a 2013 stage revival of the musical, as well as Jeremy Jordan and Natalie Knepp. The film is written and directed by Richard LaGravenese, and made its premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival. The first clip from the film, focusing on Kendrick’s singing, has now been released, and can be seen below. The film will open in American theatres on February 13th, 2015.
