Warning: The following Hollywood Crush EXCLUSIVE clip may trigger uncontrollable popping, locking, booty-shaking, hip-shimmying and even (for our older readers), a sudden recurrence of latent disco fever. Why? Because we’ve got a sneak peek at the sick opening sequence to “Step Up Revolution,” and it will, in the immortal words of Mystikal, make you wanna shake ya a–. SO WATCH YO’SELF.
The “Step Up” franchise has a history of setting the bar high in its first few minutes, introducing audiences to a no-holds-barred display of the cast’s moving and shaking abilities, and this one is no different. As movement on a Miami street grinds to a halt and the music starts thumping, a group of wily teenagers erupts from vehicles and buildings alike, taking their show to a whole new level atop the bumper-to-bumper traffic…at which point you’ll see breakdancing, butt flapping, pogo stilts, tumbling, two-person acro-dancing and at least four hydraulic pimp-mobiles with moves like Jagger. (Yes, even the cars in this movie dance better than you. What.)
And while there’s also a teensy bit of intrigue going on here—who are those masked men doing spray-paint shenanigans behind the distracted crowd?—we’re mostly just psyched to see this flash mob cut loose throughout the movie…and maybe pick up a sick move or two to show off at the reception during our cousin’s bar mitzvah, because last time, we got totally schooled by a bunch of seventh graders and it was seriously super embarrassing.
“Step Up Revolution,” starring Kathryn McCormick and Ryan Guzman opens July 27.
