'Make Your Move' Dance Featurette and 5 Clips

7 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The music is pumping, the dance floor is moving and Donny (Derek Hough) stops when he sees Aya (BoA) performing with her hip-hop Cobu crew on stage at Static, the hottest underground club in New York. They come from two different worlds, but they speak the same language - dance. Against all odds, they come together and show the world what they've got in Make Your Move. Cj Entertainment has released a behind-the-scenes featurette and five clips from Make Your Move, which opened in theaters this weekend.

Film Review: ‘Make Your Move’

10 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“East-Meets-West Side Story” might have made a clunkier but more interesting title for “Make Your Move,” a slick, disposable soap opera about a poor white boy and a spirited Korean girl who fall in love despite hailing from rival corners of Brooklyn’s club scene. Wringing yet another variation on the boy-hoofer-meets-girl-hoofer formula that fueled his screenplays for “Save the Last Dance” and “Step Up,” writer-director Duane Adler weaves an overly tangled web of resentment, betrayal and thuggish violence around his attractive two leads (“Dancing With the Stars” champ Derek Hough and pop star BoA), both of whom display almost enough fancy footwork to overcome the cliches they’ve been saddled with. Theatrical biz will be limited, but this amiable time-filler could have ancillary legs, particularly among the Asian-American audiences being targeted.

A genial, tap-dancing ex-con from New Orleans, Donny (Hough) decides to skip out on his parole and hightail it to Brooklyn, »

'Dancing With The Stars' Recap: Cody Simpson Sent Home On Disney-Themed Night

14 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Dancing with the Stars returned Monday night with the celebrities back with their original professional partners following the Switch-Up. This week, they were tasked with taking on Disney-themed routines set to songs from the classic movie musicals.

Dancing With the Stars Recap

First to hit the dance floor was Drew Carey and his pro partner Cheryl Burke, who choreographed an Aladdin-themed quickstep. Even though they threw the Genie into the dance that was set to the tune of “Friend Like Me,” the judges couldn’t be distracted from Carey’s lack of technique. Scores: 7+7+7+7=28

Next up was ice dancer Charlie White and Sharna Burgess. For their jazz routine, they channeled Mary Poppins, dancing to "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious." The routine included a cane for White and the iconic dancing penguins. Though white dropped the cane, the cheeriness of the performance along with his technical skill impressed the panel of judges. Scores: 9+10+9+9=37

'Dancing with the Stars' recap: It's Disney night!

14 April 2014 7:51 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Did you know the Osmonds were discovered by Walt Disney? No? Well, that's part of the explanation for why Donny Osmond is guest judging tonight's episode of "Dancing with the Stars." Oh, and he was Captain Shang in "Mulan." And he was Gaston in "Beauty and the Beast." Look, I don't think we need to justify Donny showing up. He won "Dancing with the Stars," remember? He's going to be a better guest judge than a lot of these random stars who just like watching the show. So let's get to it! Wasn't it nice when we had a week where someone didn't get shipped home? Of course, that was nice for the couples themselves, but it also made the show feel a little less cluttered. We start with establishing that Drew and Cheryl are safe. And they'll be dancing first. So, no time to celebrate -- get to steppin'! »

Dancing With The Stars 18 Eliminated Cody Simpson & Witney Carson Tonight,April 14th

14 April 2014 7:11 PM, PDT | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Tonight's elimination/performances show, kicked off with Drew Carey & Cheryl Burke, hitting up the dance floor to deliver a Quickstep routine to a less than stellar score of 27 out of 40 from the judges. Then Charlie White & Sharna Burgess rocked out a Jazz routine than landed them a a very good 37 score from the judges. I should also mention that they brought on former contestant and TV star, Donnie Osmond, to be a guest judge. Next, they revealed that Amy & Derek and Danica McKellar & Val Chmerkovskiy were safe this week, and Nene Leaks & Tony and Cody & Witney were in jeopardy. Then Danica McKellar & Val Chmerkovskiy served up an awesome Quickstep that garnered them a near perfect score of 39! Amy Purdy & Derek Hough danced a Waltz to an excellent score of 37. After a break, Cody Simpson & Witney Carson performed a Samba routine, which got them a decent 34 score. NeNe Leakes & Tony Dovolani »

11 April 2014 3:21 PM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Derek Hough is a ballroom staple on "Dancing with the Stars," with five mirrorball trophy wins under his belt.

The dancing pro has grown accustomed to earning 10s across the board from the judges, but after being paired with Paralympian Amy Purdy, Derek says receiving top marks with his new partner holds significantly more meaning.

"I've been on the show now 12 seasons and this season has brought a whole new meaning and brought a whole new sense of fulfillment to the whole process, which has been really exciting," Derek told Kit Hoover and Billy Bush during an ...

Nene Leakes' Dancing With the Stars Blog: My Dance Disaster with Derek and Embracing My Inner Cruella De Vil!

11 April 2014 9:00 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Editor's Note: Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes is hitting the dance floor for season 18 of Dancing With the Stars and she's blogging about her experience exclusively for E! Online. Oooh, hunni I had so much fun in last week's Switch Up! Derek is awesome, he's young, he's creative, he's an amazing choreographer. It was just fun to switch it up and see what another dancer could do, and what their creativity was like. When Derek showed up he was like, 'Hey! I'm your new partner this week,' and I was just screaming, 'Oh my goooosh!' I didn't know how Derek would be, and I was scared thinking they were asking us to do a waltz or something like that.

Video: Derek Hough On 'Make Your Move,' BoA, 'Dancing With The Stars'

10 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Derek Hough moved from his small screen role as a pro dancer on Dancing With The Stars to the big screen with his new film Make Your Move, alongside Korean pop singer BoA. "I didn't know anything really about BoA when I first heard about her," Hough told Uinterview in an exclusive video interview. "How I was introduced to her was going to the Staples Center and going to a sold-out concert."

Hough has previously acted in roles on stage including the portrayal of Jesus in Jesus Christ Superstar, Ren in Footloose and made his Broadway debut in Burn the Floor.

The Dancing with the Stars' pro had to adjust his style while filming for the screen. "I definitely would find myself messing up or doing something and getting mad at myself," Hough told Uinterview. "And then having the director and people around me saying, 'Don't worry about it »

'Dancing With The Stars' Recap: Meryl Davis Leads The Pack; No One Is Sent Home

7 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Dancing With the Stars returned on Monday with special guest judge, DWTS alum Julianne Hough, seated between Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli for the dancing competition’s “Switch-Up” week in which no one faced elimination.

Dancing With the Stars Recap

Candace Cameron Bure, now paired up with Tony Dovolani, took on a quickstep. Bure’s experience as an actress definitely allowed her to really play up the character in the routine. However, she’s looked better in past weeks with Mark Ballas. Her poor footwork in the ballroom dance was glaring. Score: 7+7+7+7 = 28

James Maslow, separated from Peta Murgatroyd, danced a tango with Cheryl Burke. Maslow wasn’t set back at all by the switch-up, giving another solid performance in the Latin dance routine in which he played a suitor to Burke’s queen. All of the judges – save Goodman – gave him a 9. Score: 9+8+9+9=35

'Dancing with the Stars' recap: The partner swap has unexpected results

7 April 2014 7:29 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Hey, guess who's on "Dancing with the Stars" this week? Julianne Hough! She'll be sitting in at the judges' table, and I fully expect her to be a great judge (sorry, Robin Roberts, but you were kinda useless). She's not only a dancer, she's been a dancer on this show -- so she's not going to pull any punches. Possibly. This week, the celebs will be getting a new partner -- just for the week, mind you -- so it could open the door to hot messes. Or greatness. Depends on the switch! If anything, this is sure to make some of the pros nervous. No one wants to think their star is circling the drain because of something they are or aren't doing.   Candace & Tony The Background: They're doing the quick step, and it's going to be a speedy quick step. She was nervous about switching partners, and it's her first ballroom week, »

DWTS's Partner Change-Up Week: Who Was Most Improved?

7 April 2014 7:20 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

It was partner switch-up week on Monday's Dancing with the Stars, and the unique evening produced mixed feelings from judges. While some usually lower-scoring contestants rose to the top, a couple of the higher-ranking performers received less than impressive marks during a week that featured Julianne Hough as a guest judge. The night kicked off with a 28-points-out-of-40 quickstep by Candace Cameron Bure and Tony Dovolani that had Hough complaining of body contact that was "a little too gapped." Judge Bruno Tonioli said a punk rock-dressed Bure needed to "sort out this top line." James Maslow and Cheryl Burke wowed »

'Dancing With The Stars' Recap: Dances Inspired By Celebs' 'Most Memorable Year'; Billy Dee Williams Eliminated

31 March 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Dancing with the Stars picked up this week following last week’s double elimination of athletes Diana Nyad and Sean Avery with its seasonal “The Most Memorable Year” episode, featuring Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts as a guest judge.

Dancing With the Stars Recap

The first to take the dance floor were Big Time Rush singer James Maslow and his professional partner Peta Murgatroyd. Maslow had chosen to represent the year 2007 – when he finally stopped getting bullied for being overweight growing up. In the high school-themed jive, Maslow showcased his athleticism with flips and kicks that duly impressed the judges’ panel. Score: 36

Dancing the rumba were NeNe Leakes and Tony Dovolani for the year Leakes got remarried to her ex-husband (2013). The dance was all about the passion and even included a bed for a prop. Leakes’ performance was an overall improvement, though Dovolani definitely stole the spotlight. Score: 31

Following an unexpected double elimination last week, this week's show - which featured Robin Roberts as a guest judge - had one couple backing out of the competition due to injury, and the rest of the couples digging into their most personal moments and sharing them with a teary-eyed audience during a most memorable year-themed episode.

Dancing With The Stars 18 Eliminated Billy Dee Williams & Emma Slater Tonight,March 31st

Tonight's performance/elimination show, kicked off with James & Peta delivering a Jive routine that landed them a great 36 out of 40 score from the judges. From there, they revealed that the big switch-up is going to take place next week, where the celebs will switch dance partners for one week with whoever the viewing audience votes for them to be with. After that, they'll switch back to their original dance partners. Then they also revealed that Billy Dee Williams had to exit the competition due to chronic back pain, so that was it for him, not surprisingly. I suspect he would've gotten voted off, anyways. Hell, he should've gotten voted off last week, but whatever. Next,NeNe & Tony rocked a Rumba routine for a 31 score.

"Dancing with the Stars" Season 18 week 3 focuses on each star's "Most Memorable Year." Get prepared to cry!

There is also Robin Roberts as a guest judge, the third elimination of the season and a whole bunch of dances and scores to follow.

James Maslow and Peta Murgatroyd

Dancing the jive

James was a chubby kid and people bullied him. He got over that.

Now he's all athletic and jiving and hot and not even a little bit fat. The dance makes that clear.

Len: "Was that an earthquake, an aftershock, or did you just rock this place? ... Your best dance, no question!"

Scores: 9+9+9+9 = 36


NeNe Leakes and Tony Dovolani

Dancing the rumba

NeNe is dancing this for her husband in commemoration of the year she married him -- for the second time. It's definitely worth celebrating something done twice.

Surprisingly, this is a pretty impressive dance for NeNe -- she has »

Watch Adam Scott's 'Step Brothers' character rant against Obamacare

25 March 2014 9:30 PM, PDT | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Funny or Die's crusade to get as many people signed up for health insurance by March 31 continues. First President Barack Obama appeared on "Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis," now "Parks and Recreation" star Adam Scott has revisited his memorable role as a scumbag from "Step Brothers."

The video includes cameos by Mark Cuban, Jeff Probst and Chris Daughty. What is important though, is the impassioned speech Scott gives as Derek Hough. He doesn't need health insurance. He drinks antifreeze, is riddled with concussions and and finds his multiple experiences being struck by lightning erotic. Who needs healthcare when that's your life?

Of course, none of that helps when he trips and breaks his ankle. He must be wishing for Obamacare now. »

'Dancing With The Stars' Recap: Diana Nyad & Sean Avery Sent Home; Ice Dancers Top The Leaderboard

24 March 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Dancing with the Stars continued with season 18 Monday night with a surprise double-elimination and the stars taking on their preferred dance styles.

Dancing With The Stars Recap

First up on the dance floor and first to know they were safe was Drew Carey and Cheryl Burke dancing a jive. Drew certainly isn’t a natural in dancing shoes, but his effort is apparent to the judges. Len Goodman was pleased to see that Cheryl challenged her partner with a series of true Jive steps. Score: 21

The next safe couple to dance was Wonder Years’ Danica McKellar and Val Chmerkovskiy. Dancing the samba, the pair pushed the sexy angle to get the judges' attention – and to best rival Candice Cameron Bure. Bruno Tonioli says that she’s “beautiful to look at, but not quite tame yet,” while Carrie Ann Inaba said she “dominated.” Score: 24

Surprisingly, Billy Dee Williams and Emma Slater »
