'Street Dance 3D' tops the weekend British Box office - watch trailer here

According to the UK Telegraph, 'Street Dance 3D' earned 1.8 milliion pounds during its opening weekend in the UK, beating out Prince of Persia and Robin Hood in earnings. The film features Britain's Got Talent veterans George Sampson (who won BGT in 2008) and dance crews Diversity (which won BGT over Susan Boyle) and Flawless in a story about a dance crew forced to work with ballet dancers at the Royal Dance School in exchange for practice space.

To quote the review in EntertainmentWise:"A so-so plot and script is reprieved by the fact that ‘StreetDance 3D’ looks amazing, sounds great and is exactly what lovers of the American alternatives are looking for- a fun and funky film." The Telegraph comments, "it’s hard to resist any film incorporating both the insult “tutu tits” and a food fight in leotards. As branded as it all feels, being a baldly strategic merger of various London cultural initiatives, the choreographed routines and editing have such dizzy energy they carry it aloft."
