Battle of the Year
is an international dance crew tournament that attracts all the best teams from around
the world, but the Americans haven’t won in fifteen years. Los Angeles Hip Hop mogul Dante (Laz
Alonso) wants to put the country that started the Sport back on top. He enlists his hard-luck friend
Blake (Josh Holloway), who was a championship basketball coach, to coach his team. Armed with the
theory that the right coach can make any team champions, they assemble a dream team of all the best
dancers across the country. With only three months until Battle of the Year, Blake has to use every
tactic he knows to get twelve talented individuals to come together as a team if they’re going to bring
the Trophy back to America where it started.
Inspired by an actual competition in France.
Screen Gems will release BATTLE OF THE YEAR on Friday, September 20
