Director Benson Lee (Planet B-Boy) brings together the world's best breakdancers (B-Boys) in the stand-up-and-cheer dance film Battle Of The Year, available 10th March 2014 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Starring Josh Holloway (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, TV's Lost), Laz Alonso (Jumping the Broom, Avatar), Caity Lotz (TV's Arrow, Bring It On: All or Nothing), Josh Peck (Red Dawn, TV's Drake & Josh) and GRAMMY®-winning artist Chris Brown (Best R&B Album, "F.A.M.E". 2012), Battle Of The Year follows a legendary break-dancing crew's return to its roots in order to reclaim the world championship after more than a decade of defeat.
