I just watched this trailer thingee for the inevitable "Step Up 4" coming out this August. Some things to be concerned about:
- This is the 4th installment of this street dance series, and not once has a person of color been the star. Seriously, WTF?
- First time director Scott Speer.
- Long intro featuring shots of Miami, in case we've never heard of this obscure southern hamlet .
- None of that dance footage looked any good.
- None of the best dancers from previous "Step Up"s appear to be in this, except Madd Chadd. That sorta looks like Moose in the white hat?
- The URL listed at the end of the trailer — stepup4-movie.com — leads to a GoDaddy page?!?
- The music is glitch-hop, which is so 2009, instead of dubstep, which is still pretty hot
Color me very skeptical and a little pissed.
