‘Step Up 2: The Streets’, the sequel to Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan’s 2006 extremely successful dance hit ‘Step Up’, will have its world premiere next Monday, February 4, 2008 at the ArcLight Theatre in Hollywood, California. Coincidentally, ‘Step Up’ also had its world premiere at the same theater back in 2006.
For those who are lucky enough to be anywhere near Hollywood next Monday, celebrities are scheduled to arrive at 6PM and the screening of the movie will begin at 7PM. You can expect to see ‘Step Up 2’ stars like Briana Evigan, Robert Hoffman, Cassie Ventura, Adam G. Sevani, Telisha Shaw, Black Thomas, and Danielle Polanco on the red carpet.
With all of the new projects he has on his plate right now, I’m not sure if Channing will be able to attend the premiere yet, so I’ll let you all know as soon as I find out anything.
On the ‘Step Up 2’ soundtrack front…
CTU’s regular readers already know that the hot Atlantic Records soundtrack exclusively features the # 1 smash hit “Low” by Flo Rida and T-Pain, plus new singles and videos from Missy Elliott, T-Pain, Enrique Iglesias, Trey Songz featuring Piles, Plies featuring Akon, Cassie, Cherish featuring Yung Joc.
As I also mentioned on the blog last Friday, Missy Elliott has two new songs on the ‘Step Up 2’ soundtrack , and she has worked with Disney and veteran video director Dave Meyers to create the very first 3-D video for “Ching-a-Ling” and “Shake Your Pom Pom”. MTV will premiere the video in 3-D on Monday, February 4th during “TRL.” Glasses for home viewing will be distributed via various promotions.
In addition to the MTV premiere, the music video also will be shown in 3-D during a special screening of ‘Step Up 2: The Streets’ on February 5, 2008 in New York, with Elliott scheduled to attend. Additional 3-D presentations may be scheduled, and the video also will be shown in 2-D.
The ‘Step Up 2’ soundtrack will be released on February 5, 2008 and ‘Step Up 2: The Streets’ opens in US, UK, and Czech theaters on Valentine’s Day, Thursday, February 14, 2008. You can CLICK HERE to watch the trailer and get all of the current release dates around the world.
