trailer break: ‘Step Up 3D’

Take a break from work: watch a trailer…

Is this the wrongest use of 3D ever? It might be. Not that I totally can’t wait to get that one guy’s elbow in my face. Cuz that’s gonna be cool.

I love how the trailer tells us that this is from director Jon M. Chu, like that means something. His only previous work of any note whatsoever is Step Up 2: The Streets. It’s not like he’s Martin Scorsese or James Cameron, where people are going, “Oo, that dude’s got a new movie?” Or have fans of Step Up 2: The Streets decided Chu is some sort of auteur who deserves worship no matter what he does? If Chu made a black-and-white three-hour epic about Latvian glassblowers, would all those Step Up 2: The Streets devotees flock to it because it’s from director Jon M. Chu?

Step Up 3D opens in the U.S., Canada, and the U.K. on August 6.
