It feels like so long ago that Channing Tatum was just another hunky dancer in a movie about dancing teens. Approximately eight years later, Tatum is a mega-star who married his onscreen dance partner, and a new generation of dancers has taken over. And they're going to Vegas, baby, Vegas!
Redonkulously handsome Ryan Guzman ("Step Up Revolution," "Pretty Little Liars," "Jem and the Holograms") puts on his dancing shoes to join Briana Evigan ("Step Up 2: The Streets") and a bunch of other "Step Up" alums to compete for their very own Vegas show. Yeah, this is a far cry from the dainty ballerinas and krumping flash mobs of years past.
This is director Trish Sie's first feature-length film. You might know her work from OK Go's video for "Here It Goes Again," which featured the band in a crazy treadmill routine that Sie choreographed and co-directed. That video snagged a Grammy and has inspired tons of parodies. She's also done commercials and/or viral videos for Levi's, Haagen-Dazs, Sony, and El Pollo Loco.
"Step Up All In" opens on August 8.
