“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, »

Believe it or not, Johnny Depp has been lighting up the silver screen for three decades.
Since breaking out on the hit show "21 Jump Street," Depp has become well known for his eccentric roles, most notably as the suave pirate Captain Jack Sparrow. While the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise made him a bankable star, Depp owes much of his career to renowned director Tim Burton for collaborations such as "Edward Scissorhands" (1990) and "Sleepy Hollow" (1999) -- just to name two.
But there's still much to know about the international star. From his early ambitions as a musician to his surprising fear, here are 33 things you probably don't know about Johnny Depp.
2. He and his family moved frequently during his childhood, living in more than 20 different places before settling in Miramar, »

Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we now have the opening scene from the upcoming "In Your Eyes" sci-fi film, which was written by "The Avengers" director Joss Whedon. Check out the clip below.

It stars Zoe Kasan (Ruby Sparks), Michael Stahl-David (Cloverfield), Nikki Reed (Twilight) and Jennifer Grey (Dirty Dancing). "In Your Eyes" is directed by Brin Hill, the writer of "Battle of the Year" and "Won't Back Down." It's set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival this weekend. Clip: »
Whenever New Girl has had a big plot point in, it’s always been interesting how they handle — or don’t — the fallout in the next episode. A few examples: Jess and Nick’s first kiss in “Cooler” was followed by the Indian speed-dating shenanigans of “Table 34″; the roomfriends were doin’ it and doin’ it and doin’ it well in “Virgins,” but “Winston’s Birthday” felt a bit like a digression; and it’s probably best if we don’t dwell too much on “Exes” (aside from Adam Brody’s dreaminess therein) because it had the misfortune to air in »

Thirty years ago, Ren McCormack fought for his right in Footloose. “This is our time to dance,” he argued. “It is our way of celebrating life. It’s the way it was in the beginning. It’s the way it’s always been. It’s the way it should be now.” As Kevin Bacon put on his old sweats and threw an old cassette on the stereo for Jimmy Fallon last week, we were reminded in the resonating power of dance scenes… Only, we often remember the most polished dance sequences and forget that “from the oldest of times, people danced for a number of reasons.” Though lists like to remind us over and over of the usual suspects – the films boasting carefully rehearsed choreography ((500) Days of Summer), musical numbers (Singin’ in the Rain), practiced moves (Dirty Dancing), and audacious comedy (Little Miss Sunshine) – there are many memorable dance sequences that break the barriers.

It's been 27 years since the original Dirty Dancing hit theaters in 1987, but the cult classic still has plenty of staying power thanks to some quotable lines, a seriously awesome '60s soundtrack, and some out-of-control dance scenes. With actress Jennifer Grey celebrating her 54th birthday on Wednesday, we're taking a look back at the iconic movie that made people dream of a sexy stranger who'd teach them how to dance, lift them high in the air, and stand up to anyone who tried to put them in the corner. (Yes? No? Just us?) In honor of Jennifer's birthday and the memorable performance from the late Patrick Swayze, take a look at 24 dos and don'ts inspired by Dirty Dancing.

There was a spirit and drive on set of Ronnie Thompson’s latest drama I Am Soldier, and a commitment to the cause not to dissimilar to the special forces themselves, with a palpable, tireless work ethic spreading around the camp. It seems only right this be the case, as the one thing Thompson – whose previous directing credit is Tower Block – was hellbent on guaranteeing, is that his film is rife with authenticity, as he uses his own personal experiences as a serviceman, to help craft this piece of cinema.
“Because I have a service background, it’s always something I’m naturally interested in,” he told us on set. “I don’t know many directors or writers that have that kind of experience to draw on and that mindset of a service person. So it’s always something I wanted to do. I’m a director who has more »

Proving that their young love is meant to be — seriously, guys — Justin Bieber posted a pair of steamy videos in which he dances a choreographed routine (to John Legend’s Ordinary People, of all things), allegedly with his on-again, off-again lady love Selena Gomez.
Bieber reportedly posted two back-to-back clips on Instagram on March 10. But before the posts could earn thousands of angry comments from heart-broken Beliebers, the young singer took them down from his social media account.
Bieber’s representative did not respond to EW’s request for comment.
Thankfully, the video — filmed during the pair’s reunion in Texas over the weekend, »

After the much awaited trailer of Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty, hit the media, Pooja Bhatt has been fuming over the title of Vipul Shah's film. The actress turned producer claims that the title 'Holiday' has been registered with her for a while now and accuses Vipul of copyright infringement.
Pooja Bhatt had directed a film titled Holiday way back in 2006, starring Dino Morea and Onjolee Nair which was also the remake of the 1987 film Dirty Dancing. The former actress also revealed that she was approached by Vipul Shah for rights of the title but she had rejected the idea.

When Dirty Dancing came out in 1987, it was a massive hit, grossing nearly $214 million in worldwide box office. But the film starring Patrick Swayze as a dance instructor at a vacation resort was nothing compared to the success of the stage version. In London alone, a Dirty Dancing musical reportedly grossed $500 million. Such prosperity should be the formula for happiness among all involved, but it hasn't been. Behind the curtains, the screenwriter of the original film has been tangoing with the stage version's Australian producer over rights. Last year, an arbitrator ruled largely in favor of the

Today romantic comedies are known for being repetative and full of cliches, but the genre didn't always have that reputation. The 1980's required film makers to reinvent the long-running genre for a new generation.
