Chris Brown Shows Off His Dance Moves in ‘Battle of the Year’ Trailer
Chris Brown will return to the big screen flexing his muscles and his dance moves in a new movie called 'Battle of the Year.' The actor-crooner hasn't been in a flick since his cameo in 'Think Like a Man' and the 2010 heist thriller 'Takers.'
The dance film, which looks like a cross between the popular 'Step Up' franchise and 'Stomp the Yard, ' explores the International world of competitive breakdancing. Here's what the movie's synopsis reads:
'Battle of the Year' is the Olympics of break dancing, a tournament held every year that attracts all the best teams from around the world, but the Americans haven't won in fifteen years. Los Angeles hip-hop mogul and former B-Boy Dante (Laz Alonso) wants to put the country that started the sport back on top.
He enlists his hard-luck friend Blake (Josh Holloway), who was a championship basketball coach, to coach his team. Armed with the theory that the right coach can make any team champions, they assemble a Dream Team of all the best b-boys across the country. With only three months until Battle of the Year, Blake has to use every tactic he knows to get twelve talented individuals to come together as a team if they're going to bring the Trophy back to America where it started. Inspired by the actual World championship held yearly in France."
After watching the trailer, it appears that Breezy is the "bad boy" among the motley crew of b-boy dancers. The singer dyed his hair blond for the role, which he reportedly went back to during his recent trip to St. Tropez.
'Battle of the Year' is directed by Benson Lee, who made some noise in 2007 with his dance documentary 'Planet B-Boy.' The movie is expected to hit theaters on Jan. 25, 2013 and also stars Josh Beck and Josh Holloway.
