Step Up Revolution 3D, the fourth installment in the Step Up dancing film series that launched the career of Magic Mike’s Channing Tatum, will premiere this Friday with music by Chris Brown, Jennifer Lopez – and an outdated flash mob theme.
The plot pits aspire dancer Emily Anderson, played by Kathryn McCormick (from the sixth season of Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance), against her wealthy real state developer father when he attempts to develop the Miami neighborhood where she and her boyfriend Sean (Guzman) pursuit their dream of becoming flash mob dancers.
Though the film won’t probably be awarded with an Oscar for "Best Movie," Step Up Revolution will serve to launch some careers – and rescue others. For starters, Kathryn McCormick will prove (or not) that reality television contestants can make it in the big screen.
The movie could also boost newcomer Ryan Guzman, who is debuting in a role similar to the one that launched Channing Tatum’s career in 2006. Additionally, the movie soundtrack could provide Jennifer Lopez with a much needed new hit -- on the heels of her departure from American Idol, and a refocus on her career as a singer.
