Step Up: Revolution Trailer Takes Dance Out Of The Club
"Enough with performance art. It's time for protest art."
Can dancing change the world? That's the premise of the fourth installment of the Step Up franchise, Step Up: Revolution. So You Think You Can Dance All Star Kathryn McCormick stars as Emily, a contemporary dancer who moves to Miami with dreams of becoming a professional dancer. There she soon connects with Sean (model Ryan Guzman making his feature film debut), who heads the fleet-footed local dance crew known as The Mob. Together, they discover that dance can be more than an art form or a means of self-expression. When wielded with the awesome intensity of The Mob, dance can be a tool of political revolt that they use to stop a nefarious developer from leveling the neighborhood they love to make way for luxury hotels.

Of course the premise is a bit ridiculous. But let's get real, when you're going to a Step Up movie, you're there for the spectacle not the story. And when it comes to spectacle, Step Up: Revolution doesn't look like it will disappoint. Already we see plenty of beautiful people—including the bushy browed but debonair Peter Gallagher—on display, along with jaw-dropping dance moves, and inventive setups, like the incredible statue number. But with The League of Extraordinary Dancers' co-creator Christopher Scott in charge of choreography, you can anticipate there'll be plenty more to marvel in theaters, especially in 3D.
Step Up: Revolution will hit theaters in 3D and 2D on April 27th.
