America has failed to win at the Battle of the Year International Championships for fifteen years despite having been the country to create the sport in the first place. The BOTY is a breakdancing competition that reaches out to the artistic talent of dancers across the globe from the States, to Korea, Japan, Russia and France; the b-boys (breakdancers) of the entire world gather together to compete in this prestigious tournament. A hip hop expert and ex-breakdancer Dante from LA is desperate to put the origin country of America back at the top where she belongs and so he hires his friend and former championship basketball coach Blake to whip his team into shape before the competition in three months' time. He's a tough talker and won't accept anything other than the best dancers and highest performances and so he and Dante put together the ultimate b-boy dream team in order to beat the world champions.
'Battle of the Year' is based on the real competition that is held once a year in France. It is directed by Benson Lee who also directed 'Planet B-Boy'; a documentary focusing on the 2005 championships, featuring all the best dancers and a series of interviews. Screenwritten by Chris Parker ('Mulan 2') and Brin Hill ('Ball Don't Lie'), this feature film will have an appearance from the award-winning R'n'B artist and dancer Chris Brown. It is set for release in UK cinemas from February 8th 2013 and January 25th 2013 in the US.
Starring: Josh Holloway, Josh Peck, Chris Brown, Laz Alonso, Caity Lotz and Terrence Jenkins.
Director: Benson Lee
