Marques Houston Talks Battlefield America, available on Blu-ray and DVD today!

From the team behind You Got Served comes a young Hip-Hop battle movie for a new generation of dance.

Sean Lewis (Marques Houston), a young, charismatic, successful businessman finds himself in the mix with a bunch of disheveled misfits Bad Boys, who have virtually no dance talent. Realizing his dilemma, Sean brings aboard a professional dance instructor to ease his responsibilities to these kids. Meanwhile, he finds himself falling for Sara (Mekia Cox), who runs the community center where the kids hangout and practice their moves. With Sean motivating them, The Bad Boys find the confidence to be contenders.

DVD Review: Chris Stokes 'Battlefield America' Teaches Predictable But Much Needed Lessons

18 September 2012 10:51 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

At the start of Chris StokesBattlefield America,” we see young, bold, and tough kids dancing at an underground dance battle. Think “You Got Serve” meets Disney’s “Ant farm”. I’ve never seen such talented young dancers dance. The opening scene gives way to a lot of great energy, but it resembles more of a music video, than that of an opening scene to a film. The film’s story begins as we enter the daily life of the young and self centered Sean Lewis (Marques Houston).  Shawn is a pompous prick of a man. He’s a hard working man, only if it benefits him. He’s just made partner at a prestigious La Marketing firm. One »

When I think of Marques Houston, I immediately think of my younger sister’s childhood obsession with the late 1990’s boy group Immature. My sister had posters, she went to their concerts, and was especially obsessed with Marques. Fast forward to today, and my sister's childhood crush has grown up and can be seen as the leading man in Chris Stokes’s feature film, “Battleground America.” Shadow and Act caught up with Marques last week to learn more about this project and his views on the films theme of mentorship. S&A:  What can our readers expect when they see “Battleground America”? Marques Houston: One thing you »

Tmp's Summer 2012 Movie Guide: June

1 May 2012 8:51 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Honestly, if I was forced to judge Summer 2012 at first glance, I would say it was pretty weak.  Compared to 2011 and 2010, there's just not as many movies to look forward to.  While it seems easy to write off this Summer as a dud, I have three reasons why it might actually be awesome; The Dark Knight Rises, The Avengers, and Prometheus.  Honestly, that's all Summer 2012 needs in order to be one for the history books.  Even then, there's still more than enough films to warrant your attention this summer.  To help you sort through them all, we've once again compiled all the most interesting films of the season into four easy to read, informative guides.  For the next four days, we'll take you on a journey through the best cinema has to offer in Summer 2012.  Welcome to our Summer 2012 Movie Guide! Today, we will focus on June 2012, one of the biggest months of the year. »

New Trailer for Dance Film Battlefield America Lands

29 March 2012 10:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

From Chris Stokes and Marques Houston, director/writer and star of You Got Served, comes a new dance film that sees the dance-contest film genre that have surged in recent years moving down the ages to star a host of young kids.

A new trailer for Battlefield America has landed, courtesy of Yahoo Movies, and whilst it’s not my personal cup of tea, I’m sure there are plenty of fans of Stokes’ earlier film who’ll want to see what he’s bringing to the big screen next.

“The Bad Boys are a youth hip-hop dance crew struggling to compete in the battle dance culture in Long Beach, California. Sean Lewis, a young, charismatic, successful businessman finds himself in the mix with the disheveled misfits, who have virtually no dance talent. Realizing his dilemma, Sean brings aboard a professional dance instructor to ease his responsibilities to these kids. »
