The second official trailer for Step Up All In has revealed itself, providing even glimpses into the crazy dances battles yet to come. From Maryland to New York to Florida and now Las Vegas, the stakes are being raised even higher. Wocka Wocka Wocka. With select dancers from every entry of the Step Up franchise coming together, this is sure to be The Avengers of extreme choreographed dance movies. Watch the trailer after the break.
We’re not really given much more in terms of plot or reasoning behind Step Up All In’s intentions, but then again, these movies are paper thin when it comes to any sort of narrative. The only big reveal is that we find out that they’re dancing because they can get a big contract to perform in Vegas for a few years. (Whoa, dreams can come true.)
The best part of any Step Up movie, aside from the dancing, is the low stakes minimalism. With a summer cluttered with end of the world drama and explosions at every turn, it’s seriously refreshing to ground characters to something semi-relatable and visually fun to watch.
The Step Up alums coming back for more includes Alyson Stoner (Step Up/Step Up 3D), Briana Evigan (Step Up 2 The Streets), Adam Sevini (Step Up 2/3D/Step Up Revolution), and Ryan Guzman (ST:R). I really hope that if All In proves to be successful Channing Tatum (Step Up) and Sharni Vinson (Step Up: Revolution) will return for more. I can’t even imagine a Step Up world where Channing Tatum returns based on how much his stardom has expanded over the years. He made a brief appearance in The Streets, but perhaps he prefers to dance on the stripper stage now that Magic Mike 2 is underway.
