Coming to Theaters
‘Planet B-Boy’ looks promising
Planet B-Boy is a new documentary from Benson Lee that follows several international break-dancing groups as they practice for the Battle of the Year, where “B-Boys” from 18 different countries come together to compete. The film also introduces the audience to the history, culture and future of the dance style which is considered by those who still thrive on the 80’s phenomenon more than just dance. Planet B-Boy looks really cool and interesting … and its real! Unlike the glossy fictional Hollywood dance-movie flops like Step Up, this film offers the real thing. The film first premiered in March, ran in April at the Tribeca Film Festival and opens in theatres [at least, in St. Louis] on May 2.
