Streetdance 2 gets a featurette and poster

Vertigo Films are delighted to announce that the eagerly anticipated follow up to STREETDANCE 3-D will be released nationwide in both 2D and 3D screens on March 30th, 2012. now, with that news out of the way, we have also been sent a new featurette for the film. In this one we have George Sampson talking to the cast as well as showing us some new clips of the film. Then to wrap all the new stuff up, we have also the teaser poster to show you.

To watch this video, you need the latest Flash-Player and active javascript in your browser.

Boasting a predecessor that is one of the most successful independent British films ever, STREETDANCE 2 is brought to our screens by the same team behind the camera. The film is directed by the award winning duo Max and Dania and written by Jane English (Sugar Rush). Vertigo’s Allan Niblo and James Richardson have produced. The film was shot on location throughout Europe, including London, Paris, Rome and Berlin.

Falk Hentschel and Sofia Boutella head a diverse cast of new and emerging dance and acting talent, along with returning familiar faces. Having danced on two of Madonna’s world tours (Confessions and Sticky & Sweet), Sofia was most recently seen as the lead in the promotional video for Michael Jackson’s posthumous single release Hollywood Tonight. Falk was last seen on the big screen in the Tom Cruise action thriller Knight & Day.

George Sampson (‘Waterloo Road’) is welcomed back in to a leading role as cheeky guy Eddie, whilst dance troupe Flawless reprise their role as rival dance crew The Surge. Akai (‘Got to Dance’) returns playing Junior, the youngest member of the new crew and distinguished actor Tom Conti (Shirley Valentine) also joins the cast as Manu, Eva’s (Boutella) loving and over-protective Uncle.
When top street dancer Ash (Hentschel) is humiliated and laughed off stage by American crew Invincible, he sets off to gather the best dancers from around the world to take them on - with a dance style they weren't expecting. With landmark locations, a spectacular fusion of dance styles and an unparalleled vibrancy, the sequel to STREETDANCE sees our hero fall in love with a beautiful salsa dancer as he discovers the magic, power and passion of dancing for the ultimate global dance off.
Co-funded with the British Film Institute and BBC Films, STREETDANCE 2 3D will be distributed by Vertigo Films in the UK and Ireland.

James Richardson (producer, Vertigo Films) said: “All of us at Vertigo are extremely excited about the sequel to StreetDance. We spent a year searching for the best dancing and acting talent and have been filming all across Europe. The fusion of salsa and streetdance is visually stunning and paired with a great story line so we can’t wait for people to see the film.
