Anna Kendrick is a National Treasure

10 Oct

No matter what you like to watch, you probably know who Anna Kendrick is, at least vaguely. Do you like sparkly vampires? She was in Twilight. Do you like Oscar nominated performances and/or George Clooney? She was nominated for Up In The Air. Do you like quirky dramedies? She was in 50/50. Do you like witty teen comedies? She can currently be seen in Pitch Perfect, where she sings, dances and steals your heart.

With the recent success of The Hunger Games movie leading to increased interest in reading the books, I realized that advertising is just as important for books as for anything else. Everyone’s heard of The Hunger Games, Harry Potter and Twilight. So that’s what everyone reads.

I don't think this girl got the memo
