Step Up 3D with Sharni Vinson and Kendra Andrews

Step Up 3D stars Sharni Vinson and Kendra Andrews revealed to HollywoodOutbreak that they twice crashed a showing of their movie for the thrill of it all.  Vinson says that she spent the time in the theater dark observing the 3D glasses-covered audience (for the shape of their mouths?  Upturn for happy and wide-open for amazement).  Vinson says that the audience was happily amazed, and then went on-the-record to say that “everyone wants to be happy in life.”  Argue with that.

Salt dropped another 43 percent this week, but still landed in fourth position with $11.1 million. That brings Salt’s receipts to an estimated $91.8 million in three weeks, which is just shy of the $110 mil it cost to produce.

Dinner for Schmucks slipped to fifth place and dropped 55.4 percent with a $10.5 million take over the weekend. Schmucks had a budget of $69 million, which means it has recouped an estimated $46.7 mil so far.

“STEP UP 3D” – WELCOME TO BOOT CAMP

stepup3d1

Rick Malambri and Sharni Vinson, who play Luke and Natalie in Step Up 3D, knew they were headed for trouble the moment they stepped onto the set. All their muscles were put to the test – but they both admit that it hurt so good.

The flick’s producer, Adam Shankman insisted they train at a dancers boot camp and both Malambri and Vinson were ripped and regenerated to the max in the time they were there.

Long hours, longer days – but they managed…and the result is a realistic 3D experience.

Click onto video for boot camp basics from Adam Shankman, Rick Malambri and Sharni Vinson.

IN THEATERS – AUGUST 6TH, 2010

theotherguys

The Other Guys are Allen Gamble and Terry Hoitz (Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg), a couple of unimpressive cops who want to be as cool as their heroes, NYPD Detectives Christopher Danson and P.K. Highsmith (Dwayne Johnson, Samuel L. Jackson). The pair fall onto a big case, but they’re not as adept as they wish they were.


stepup3d

Let’s face it, it wouldn’t matter much if Step Up 3D has a good storyline or not…as long as the dance numbers were dazzling. Still, the tale revolves around a group of New York street dancers who end up going head to head with the world’s best hip hop dancers. Not really a new idea, but yes, the dancing is spectacular. The pic stars Rick Malambri and Sharni Vinson. Keep your eyes peeled for a few of the So You Think You Can Dance contestants like Stephen tWitch Boss, Jonathan Legacy Perez and Joshua Allen).


flipped

Juli Baker (Madeline Carroll) is a nature girl, who loves trees, birds and more, while Bryce Loski (Callan McAuliffe) is way cooler in the film, Flipped. Bryce used to believe Juli’s quirks were odd and now he’s strangely attracted to them. Directed by Rob Reiner, the movie is a coming of age story about two eighth grade students who are attracted to each other though they’re complete opposites.
