Only a couple more days till we can see the movie!! Those of us in the States anyway – some of our European friends have been lucky enough to already see it. Anyway, Celebuzz has a new clip from the movie of Derek and BoA drumming. I can’t embed, so you’ll have to visit the site to see the clip —> Celebuzz Exclusive Clip (thanks to Lea). For all things “Make Your Move” please visit MakeYourMove3DFans.com for all the information on the movie, including all about the entire cast.
What a great article and interview with Derek at Yahoo for starters today. Derek talks of the benefits of growing and maturing. He also talks of how he relates to Donny his character in his new movie “Make Your Move”.
“For me, there’s nothing more masculine than when I’m completely in control of my body and can call upon my body to do whatever I want it to do,” he said. “I don’t know if women gravitate towards that, that ability to tap into that true inner masculine self, I don’t know.”
Hough added another benefit of growing and maturing is he finally in a place in his life where he can appreciate love stories, which is the theme of his new movie out Friday.
“It’s amazing how much clearer you get when you fall in love with somebody,” he told ABC News of how his life now relates to his character Donny.
Though he didn’t say whether there was a certain special lady in his life currently, he added, “love clarifies everything, makes it more enjoyable.”
“I see similarities in Donny [his character] and myself, just trying to figure out what it is you’re meant to do, following your passion,” he added.
I don’t know that there is any new information on this site, but it would be a good idea to go and watch the two videos – one has Derek rehearsing his tap dancing and the other is the trailer. There is also a place to put in your city and look for movie show times – so far, I only saw showtimes for Los Angeles. Hopefully, this issue of not being able to find theaters will be resolved in the next day or so. Kinda hard to go see a movie if you can’t figure out where and when it’s playing.
Yep, Derek’s very first movie comes out in two weeks. Now, you think all you have to do is go to a theater and watch it, right? Well, no, not exactly. Some of you will get to see it because it will be released in your town. But what you might not understand about a lot of movies – including Derek’s – is that it will be what is called “Limited Release”. Lots and LOTS of movies are released to limited theaters before “going wide” to theaters all across the country. Mainly the “Limited Release” movies are small, independently made movies – like Derek’s. There is nothing wrong with this – it’s very common and some of the biggest movies of all time started out this way. They don’t have the budget to promote the movie they way they would probably like. Anyway, Make Your Move 3D fans go in to a lot more detail about limited release and Indie movies and the history of “Make Your Move” to date, so you should definitely go read that. Thanks to them for their unwitting assistance in putting this post together.
In fact, it’s probably really important that you read that because it’s important that you understand your role in making Make Your Move a success. Will it be a blockbuster? Well, most movies aren’t, so this one isn’t likely to be any different. But it’s not necessary for it to be some massive blockbuster for it to be successful. What is important is that it is successful relative to what the producers and distributors expect. It is important that Derek get good buzz, that the music sells, that the theaters it does open in get good audiences…that you rate it on Fandango or Moviefone and/or Rotten Tomatoes or wherever. Or all of those things. If these things happen, the movie could be released to wider audiences around the country. Most people who have seen this movie LOVE IT. So it makes your job as a Derek fan that much easier. There are several things I hope you will do:
Watch the “Let Me In” video many times on the Billboard site. It’s important that you watch it ON the Billboard site – not someone’s ripped version of it, not what you’ve saved on your computer, not even the embedded version that I posted on this site. That’s important because people watch site hits, and number of views and all that stuff. People keep track of all of that. And that factors into how well a movie does.
Check the list below and if MYM is opening in your town to go see it on the very first weekend. Take as many people with you as you possibly can. Go early, go often. I will likely see it three times before the weekend is over and it’s not even opening in Nashville – I have to travel. But Derek is worth it. If it’s not opening in your town, CALL THE THEATER AND ASK ABOUT IT. Particularly if you have a Regal, AMC or one of the other chains listed below.
After seeing the movie, rate/review it on Fandango – you will have to create an account if you don’t have one, and put in the zip code of the area where you saw the movie. Then do the same thing on Rotten Tomatoes and Moviefone.com. I would suggest rating some movies you’ve seen now, so you know what to do.
If you live a town where Make your Move opens, it sure wouldn’t hurt if you went to see it during the week too.
If you don’t see your city, above, then check out these movie sites below and put in your zip code:
If you can think of anything else that would be important to do to help this movie be a success, please let me know in the comments and I’ll add it. I will repost this when we get closer so you don’t forget.
Fashion Laine interviewed Derek Hough about his new movie “Make Your Move”. Below he talks about what made him want to do the movie and what it was like to learn tap dancing. Lots more at the link. Also, don’t miss visiting Make Your Move Fans to read some new reviews, interviews, and see more pics. ~Vogue
Fashionlaine: What made you want to do this movie?
Derek Hough: What made me love this script was that my character was a tapper and I never knew how to tap. My dad is such a huge fan of tapping so I thought this would be a great opportunity to learn that. And obviously working with Duane, hearing that BoA was going to be apart of it, and working with Napoleon and Tabitha who were the choreographers who are absolutely the best and that I love, I definitely wanted to be apart of this. And in addition, it was a cool transition to do a film for the first time because I’m so used to doing everything live.
Fashionlaine: How hard was it learning tap? Was it easier or harder than you thought it would be?
Derek Hough: I’m a drummer so it was easy, I definitely picked it up fast. They offered to have a stunt person do some of the tap for me in the film, but I was very insistent on wanting it to be all me doing all the tap.
