You Win, Anna Kendrick: How Anna Convinced Us To See ‘Trolls,’ Co-Starring Justin Timberlake

Stars Anna Kendrick and Justin Timberlake are currently out promoting their upcoming Dreamworks Animation film Trolls. Kendrick, America’s sweetheart, sure seems to believe in this movie. She’s really doing everything she can to market the film.

For example, she recorded a cover of Cydni Lauper’s “True Colors” with Timberlake that’s featured in the film and even performed it live at the Cannes Film Festival.

Speaking of which, Kendrick and Timberlake traveled all across Cannes to promote the movie. They even traveled on a boat! Thankfully, they eventually landed and made it safely ashore via the docks.

And while Cannes has a reputation as a serious affair, focusing on high-class celebrities and important films, Kendrick helped pave crucial in-roads for a creature so often ignored on the internet: trolls! Those colorful creatures really pop in the background of this photo.

On the outside, it always seem like red carpets might bore celebrities after a while. Walk a few steps, pose, endure stilted interviews. But Kendrick doesn’t show any signs of fatigue. Look at how she dazzles on the red carpet of Cannes’ Opening Night Gala. All to promote her movie Trolls!

But Anna Kendrick didn’t stop there. This is why we love her. She’s such a team player, doing anything she can to promote a film. While at Cannes, she sat down for an interview, delving into her Trolls character. The actress even compared her character to Timberlake’s in the film.

If you aren’t excited for this movie yet, don’t worry: Anna Kendrick kept on promoting. She then traveled to San Diego Comic Con to market the film. The #professional she is, she somehow suffered posing for photos with JT!

Listen up, Hollywood. You tired of these apathetic stars just aiming to cash another check? Well, Kendrick’s your woman, then. Not only did she do some more traveling for further promotion, this time to London, she’s also using her own platform to highlight the film!

Headlines crossed internet streams when Kendrick (ed. note: Timberlake was there, too) failed to light up the famous London Eye. The button didn’t work. But Kendrick didn’t fret. She didn’t cause a scene. She just laughed it off!

How freakin’ adorable! Timberlake’s sure been busy, too. He pulled double duty in London, performing as part of Capital FM Up Close series. But guess who was there to show her support? That’s right! Kendrick. You just gotta be impressed with this pro.

Well we don’t know about you, but we’re convinced: This Trolls movie is going to be some stunner come November. And even if it’s not—Anna Kendrick!
