"Step Up 3 on Blu-ray is a dazzling, high-energy, high-definition experience and when I saw these talented performers on the TV screen it took me right back to the energy of the production process," noted director Jon M. Chu. "And even more thrilling is that with its availability on Blu-ray 3D, all the vibrance and spectacle of this film will give the audience an incredible in-home 3D experience."
Chu, who made his directorial debut with Step Up 2: The Streets, again captures the liveliness and athletic feats of street dancing in eye-popping action with a talented cast of actors who defy gravity with their hip-hop moves in Step Up 3. Featuring multiple dance styles in addition to hip hop, including ballet, tap and tango, is a wild, animalistic joy to dancing that is irresistible and the talented cast makes it look easy.
The story itself centers on a pair of gritty street dance squads facing off in the World Jam, a high-stakes showdown that is the hip-hop Olympics and revolves around two couples – Moose and Camille (Adam G. Sevani and Alyson Stoner, from Step Up 2 and Step Up respectively), and new characters Luke and Natalie (Rick Malambri and Sharni Vinson).
New York's intense underground street dancing comes alive in Blu-ray 3D when this tight knit group of street dancers (Malambri, Vinson) team up with Moose (Sevani) and find themselves pitted against the world's best hip hop dancers in a gravity defying dance exhibition battle that will change their lives forever.
