Chris Brown is Ready For 'Battle'
August 14, 2012
Chris Brown got his big screen star in 2007's Stomp the Yard and he's returning to the dance genre for his biggest acting role to date with 2013's Battle of the Year.
The heavy-lifting role, which requires Chris to flaunt his dramatic chops as well as his sweet moves, revolves around the Olympics of break dancing, which are held every year and attract the best talent from around the globe. It's a contest America hasn't won in 15 years -- but Chris' team aims to change that! If only they could stop getting in their own way.
The crew is helped on their journey by Blake (Lost's Josh Holloway), a former championship basketball coach, who applies those game theories to this new arena. By combining an underdog story with sick 3D dance moves, Battle of the Year aims to be Hoosiers meets Step Up -- does it succeed? Watch the trailer and find out!
Battle Of The Year hits theaters on January 25, 2013
