Burbank, Calif., October 25, 2010 - Bringing the best in 3D entertainment to consumers at home, on December 21 the dance film sensation Step Up 3 will jump off screens and into living rooms across the country on Blu-ray 3D day-and-date with Blu-ray and DVD from Touchstone Home Entertainment.  Pulsating with dazzling choreography, made even more incredible when viewed in 3D, and high-energy chart topping music by some of today’s hottest artists that make you want to move, Step Up 3 is the first dance film shot entirely in 3D making it an innovative third installment in the popular Step Upfranchise.  

Filmed on location in New York City, Step Up 3 makes everyone in the house want to get up and groove, and is the perfect holiday gift for the whole family.  Step Up 3 will be available in several physical and digital download product configurations including a special 3-Disc Combo Pack featuring the film on Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, and DVD with Digital Copy; a 2-Disc Blu-ray Combo Pack (Blu-ray and DVD) and single disc DVD. Download configurations include High Definition and Standard Definition versions of the movie only and the movie with bonus features.  

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 John 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 consumers an incredible in-home 3D experience.” 

Chu, who made his directorial debut with Step Up 2: The Streets, again captures the energy 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, there's a wild, animalistic joy to the dancing that's irresistible and the talented cast makes it look easy.  

The story 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 street dancing underground comes alive in Digital 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. 

The soundtrack for Step Up 3 features chart-topping music by today’s hottest artists including Flo Rida featuring David Guetta, Trey Songz, Roscoe Dash & T-Pain, Laza Morgan and Wisin y Yandel.
