Step Up All In takes one of the most popular dance franchises in film history to all new heights, following Miami street dancer Sean Asa (Ryan Guzman) as he tries to make it in Hollywood, only to discover the almost insurmountable odds of making it in the professional dance world. When he meets the headstrong Andie West (Briana Evigan), they form a new dance crew that reaches the final rounds of a high-stakes reality TV competition that will make their dreams come true. During this exclusive phone interview with Collider, actor Ryan Guzman talked about how shocked he was when he was invited back for another Step Up film (he was in Step Up Revolution), why he liked the concept of being teamed up with Briana Evigan, the dynamic between Sean and Andie, how there are no special effects added to the dancing, his favorite dance sequence in the film, »

The franchise that launched Channing Tatum’s career limps its way to Las Vegas in “Step Up All In,” where characters with bum knees and broken hearts compete for a shot at a three-year casino dance contract. With even less plot than in previous installments to get in the way of its inventive 3D dance scenes, this fifth pic delivers on spectacle — especially in its nine-minute, flame-throwing Caesars Palace finale — but lacks in chemistry, trying to pair the leads of the second and fourth films after their co-stars dumped them. Although the series’ box office has been slipping, this “all in” reunion (minus Tatum) could reverse the trend ever so slightly.
By this point, the characters have reached an age where dancing for fun doesn’t cut it, so they must find a way to make a living in the famously brutal field, whose humiliating auditions and frequent rejections make »

Ryan Guzman is wrapping up work on one musically-savvy picture, as he's filming on another. The dancer and singer will be doing only the latter in the forthcoming "Jem and the Holograms" movie, he revealed this week during promotions for "Step Up All In." Many fans of the original "Jem" dolls and the television show are eager to see what facets of the truly outrageous character survive in the upcoming film adaptation. (Ok, well at least this fan is.) Guzman plays Rio -- the Holograms' road manager -- in the 2016 flick, and he's got some good news and some bad news in that regard. The long purple hair? Gone. "Rio is reinvented," he said, smiling, though: "He's overtly pretty or some reason, so he's always put together. He sings in the movie, but no dancing." Guzman's "Step Up" franchise Jon M. Chu is directing "Jem and the Holograms" is being »

It feels like so long ago that Channing Tatum was just another hunky dancer in a movie about dancing teens. Approximately eight years later, Tatum is a mega-star who married his onscreen dance partner, and a new generation of dancers has taken over. And they're going to Vegas, baby, Vegas!
Redonkulously handsome Ryan Guzman ("Step Up Revolution," "Pretty Little Liars," "Jem and the Holograms") puts on his dancing shoes to join Briana Evigan ("Step Up 2: The Streets") and a bunch of other "Step Up" alums to compete for their very own Vegas show. Yeah, this is a far cry from the dainty ballerinas and krumping flash mobs of years past.
This is director Trish Sie's first feature-length film. You might know her work from Ok Go's video for "Here It Goes Again," which featured the band in a crazy treadmill routine that Sie choreographed and co-directed. That »

While Step Up Revolution was the lowest grossing Step Up film since the first one, it still made over $140 million worldwide on a budget of $33 million. So it makes sense a fifth one would be made and it arrives later this year in the form of Step Up All In. Directed by Trish Sie, the film brings together characters from previous installments including Ryan Guzman, Briana Evigan, Stephen "twitch" Boss, Misha Gabriel, Izabella Miko, Alyson Stoner and Adam Sevani. Sorry, no Channing Tatum or Jenna Dewan, but they haven't been around for some time so I doubt fans will be too upset. This time around the dancing moves to Vegas as for a competition that brings everyone together. Summit will release Step Up All In on July 25. Check out the trailer below. sb id="901143" height="343" width="610" »

Plus: Aria finally chooses between Ezra and Jake, and Hanna makes a major post-Caleb move!
Alison (Sasha Pieterse) activated the full power of her underground lesbian spy network on the Jan. 21 episode of Pretty Little Liars, using Shana to lure Emily (Shay Mitchell) into a secret meeting. Their reunion was brief — disappointingly so, after viewers have been extremely patient — but Emily and Ali did finally come face to face, and had Spencer (Troian Bellisario) not totally ruined the moment, they probably would have kissed.
Not much came of Emily and Ali’s meeting, except Emily now knows that Ali believes “A” is the person who’s been trying to kill her all this time. (Is this news?) I guess we’ll have to wait for the next time Ali decides to reach out to to Emily via Rosewood’s lesbian network, so keep checking the sky for the boob signal, »
