Boogie Town trailer, you guys:

Is this real life?

On the one hand, I find this trailer to be intensely confusing and poorly put together, because it is. Underworld 2 Tha Streets. On the other hand, I wish so hard that we lived in a world where the greatest scourge on society were the aggressive underground dance battle gangs with telekinetic power. “Let’s settle this score in the abandoned warehouse. Bring your crew, and movement clothes.” Hopefully, though, we could somehow merge that world with the world we have now. Because there are some things that I do enjoy about this world, like functional electricity, and a full-spectrum color palette. (Thanks for the tip, Michelle.)

    BANGERRANG RUFIO

  2. Forget it Gabe, it’s Boogietown.

    (I’ll see myself out, thank you very much.)

    “Anyone who is caught battle-dancing will be arrested and sent to jail.” I just LOL’d up the place! This movie is the biggest secret valentine to Gabe, from all of us! MUAH!

  4. I can appreciate that Love, Hate, and Rivalry, the disparate concepts that they are, are all visually represented by vigorous dance moves.

    knows what I’m talking about.
    Who cares that love and hate are opposite? (What’s the opposite of dance? Maybe taking a poop. So they could have showed someone on the toilet, for example.)

  5. The name of this movie really clashes with the image that the trailer wants to convey. “All this dancin’ is for serious, shit just got real. Let’s call the movie ‘Boogie Town.’ ” What?

  6. That was the longest 1:25 of my life (that’s as long as I could stand to watch it).

    It’s like someone watched ‘West Side Story’ and thought to themselves “You know what’s wrong with this film? The lights are on, no one has creepy blue vampire eyes, and everyone’s just too darn good at their jobs. Let me call my friend, the writer and director of ‘You Got Served.’ He’ll be able to fix this.”

  7. I went to the youtube page hoping to see quite a number of wat‘s, but apparently people are genuinely excited about this. This must be what its like to visit a country where you don’t speak the language.

  8. This is the most realistic distopian film to date, right? This is the worst place in our imaginations, simply dreadful. How else can you explain the fact that the most street street rivalries and most disconcerting criminal activity involve competitive dancing. This must be the terrible socialist world that Obama is leading us to.

  9. Roger, go back next door and hang out with Tia and Tamara. Underworld dancing is not for you.

  10. Are we sure this isn’t the new Legion trailer?

  11. looks like this is going to be this year’s stomp the yard – meaning the movie my friend and i will go see in the theatre in the middle of the day and laugh uncontrollably at its unintentional humor.

  12. So they also have powerful telekinetic powers? For dancing? PS. Nice Justin Timberlake hat, future albino dance warrior.

  13. Boogie is the weapon of the future.

    • See, this is what happens when the government finally enforces gun control. The urban youth resort to something so much worse…slow-motion dance fighting.
      Good god, what have we done?

  14. That Asian girl is a disney channel star- did they sanctionthis? And if they did, I wish they had cast MiIey Cyrus instead. That way it would be the perfect stew of wtfKIDSTHESEDAYS!?

  15. Finally someone had the idea to combine Footloose and Dragonball Z. The terrible idea.

    I think you guys can stop the hunt for the worst movie of all time, you may have just found it.

  17. We just got served

  18. I miss the good ol’ days when Marques Houston was just little Roger on “Sister, Sister.” Go home Roger/Marques Houston!

    How..? How dose something like this happen? I can imagine some hack writer feeling like a genius as he composes the script for this movie out on an idex card but who reads that index card and then has it forwarded to their boss? Whose boss reads this and doesn’t realise its a joke?

    I can understand people in Hollywood just happy to have a job making this movie, but who is paying them?

  21. You guys hate on this all you want, but I think it looks awesome. DID YOU SEE THAT DANCING IN SLOW MO?!? HOW DO YOU TURN THAT DOWN? You do not turn that down. Thank you, Gabe.

  22. I’m pretty sure one of the main bad dancers henchman was the front man for Hoobastank. Hoobastank for christ’s sake. And with that, I am satiated.

  23. I thought I might hear: “The the force dance with you” in the trailer. But, no.

    :( (((

    if only there were strict rules against battle dancing in place, we could turn this country around.

  25. BOO-GIE TOWN! BOO-GIE TOWN! BOO-GIE TOWN!

  26. How the fuck do you suppose they are going to change “I want to live in America” to fit in with Boogie Town?

  27. Finally a movie with the courage to address post-9/11 dance battles.

  28. Where is the Steve Harvey cameo??? First rule of dance battle movies, you NEED a Steve Harvey cameo.

  29. Wait, should I pretend I’m not SO excited to see this?

    I’ll be there on opening night with a bottle of Stoli, pounding a shot every time someone says “for real,” “get some” or “back up.”

  30. So this is the new Twilight movie right? Why is Edward a black guy now? Did he get cool shape shifter powers like Sylar? Cuz that would be SO AWESOME!!!!!

  31. Barney Frank needs to yell at this movie until it stops.

  32. America’s Best Dance Crew: Season 32

  33. boogie-time > bullet-time

  34. Romeo & Juliet + America’s Best Dance Crew + Telekinesis = Boogie Town?
    I need to check my math.

  35. Made it to 1:05! Nice work, trailer guys! This movie looks too good to be true. I only wish they had done the She-Wolf moves.

  36. i actually couldnt finish watching that trailer
