Trailer for a dance drama called Battle of the Year: The Dream Team, which stars Josh Holloway, Chris Brown, Laz Alonso, and Josh Peck.
The Screen Gems’ film was previously titled Planet B-Boy, and is directed by Benson Lee.
It’s based on director Lee’s 2007 documentary, also titled Planet B-Boy, which was set in the international world of “B-boying” (aka break dancing).
The fictional narrative film inspired by Lee’s award-winning documentary follows an all-star American b-boy crew training to compete at the Battle of the Year International Championships in France. The crew and their coach must go up against the best b-boys in the world — the Koreans, the Russians and the French, who have dominated the original American dance form for the past decade.
Alonso plays a former b-boy who wants to put the USA back on top of the sport; Chris Brown plays one of the members of the assembled Dream Team.
There’ve been enough of these dance flicks, that there was even a parody movie of them all, wasn’t there?
Screen Gems will release the film on January 25, 2012.
