What great promo for Derek Hough and his new movie “Make Your Move 3D” in a new article at E Online today. They also posted two high quality, glorious shots from the movie of he and BoA. Be sure to head to the link to see them as well as a video where he talks about Erin Andrews which we added below as well. Below are a few paragraphs from the article. For more info and goods on this movie, see Make Your Move Fans.
In the movie (in theaters on April 18), a romance blossoms when Donny (Hough) sees Aya (BoA) performing with her hip-hop crew at an underground nightclub in New York City. But in a Romeo and Juliet twist, they find themselves at the center of a bitter rivalry between their brothers’ dance clubs.
Make Your Movie was written and directed by Duane Adler, the writer behind Step Up and Save the Last Dance.
“He’s really a triple threat,” fellow DWTS dancer Anna Trebunskaya once told us about Hough. “He’s a great actor, dancer, he can sing… I’ve actually seen him three years back before Dancing With the Stars on the West End in London and he was the lead in Footloose and he was excellent!”

He’s been virtually invisible this week, hasn’t he. Well, now we know why anyway – choreographing for GMA’s Salute to the Oscars! I sense that we will have a much bigger Twitter roundup next week….
Last night, Entertainment Tonight interviewed Derek ‘behind the scenes’ of making the “Let Me In” video for “Make Your Move 3D”. Derek tells of how he wrote the song before the movie and then after playing it for producers, it was picked to be the theme song. He looks cute and we can see him playing the piano too. Stay tuned. We hope to have coverage from Entertainment Tonight soon. When we do, we’ll update this post. Heidi also recorded this on her TIVO and plans to post it for our International readers later. For more on the video and Derek’s song and video for “Let Me In”, see Make Your Move Fans.
I wonder if they will release “Let Me In” as a single? Let’s hope. It’s such a beautiful song!! I can’t imagine it not being a big hit!!!! ~Vogue
Awww, doesn’t this look fascinating??! Could it be for “Let Me In”? Today, Derek’s publicist, Sue Madore posted this instagram saying it was for a video shoot for “Make Your Move 3D”. Too fun. Let’s hope this is the beginning of not only a film career, but, a musical one as well. So talented in more ways than one! ~Vogue
ETA: Also below is a shot from music supervisor @EKDMachine.
I think this trailer is only slightly different from the previous one – or maybe I’m nuts and it’s not different at all. But it is now on Yahoo, so watch it three or four times. It’s also important to comment ON YAHOO about the video and how much you love it and how excited you are for the movie.
Finally!! Duane Adler says that a new trailer for Make your Move will be released online Thursday and in select theaters on Friday. You can be damn sure I’m going to the movies to see if I can see it on the big screen!! There are two ways to try, I think; either it will be on a reel with a movie being released by the same distribution company (Lionsgate? Ask @makeyourmove3D) OR it will be on a separate reel by theater. That’s what I’ve always understood anyway. Here’s a pic Duane tweeted.

It seemed like there wasn’t much going on this week, but then look at all the pretty pictures!! From Palm Springs to Annex Man to the Grove….

Hey Derek Fans! Don’t miss heading over to Make Your Move 3D Fans when you get a moment. They’ve premiered Part 3 of their new interview with “Make Your Move 3D” Director Duane Adler. Below is a take where they ask Duane about Derek’s involvement with writing one of the songs, “Let Me In” for the movie score. This is fascinating!!
Make Your Move Fans: We know that Derek was involved in the writing of Let Me In. Did he write the lyrics, the music, or both?
Duane: Here’s what happened: Derek played me a melody early in pre-production, it’s something he created in his house on his laptop with a keyboard. When he played it, he said it represented Donny and Aya. I listened, and there was a beautiful piano melody that became the melody and hook for “Let Me In,” and around that melody were big drums that Derek told me represented Aya’s taiko, and a guitar that represented Donny’s edge. It was beautiful and powerful and romantic – I loved it. So I played it for the film’s producers, as well as music supervisor, Joel C. High. They all loved it, too, and Joel suggested we get Derek in studio with our composers, Michael Thomas and Eric Goldman.
Michael and Eric are also music producers who have worked with artists like Lady Gaga. Once in the studio, the trio of Michael, Eric, and Derek teamed together to create the song! They all collaborated on lyrics and defined the layering. Michael actually sings lead on the track. Derek is also a very good vocalist, but we all thought it would be strange to hear his voice singing on a major set piece that he and BoA (as their characters) were dancing to!
Lot’s more at Make Your Move 3D Fans including new “behind the scenes” photos like the pic below and you can also listen to a music sample of Derek singing. Beautiful!
Finally some news on the United States release date for Derek asnd BoA’s new movie “Make Your Move 3D”. Our friends at Make Your Move Fans are reporting a release date has been set for March 28th, 2014. Here is a little take from the link….
That’s right! An official release date has finally been set for Make Your Move 3D in the United States. It’s March 28, 2014. That’s a long time away…. But hey, it’s set!!!
As it so happens, many other countries often wait until the U.S. release date to schedule their releases. So we expect to hear more premiere dates for the other European and Asian countries soon!
LOTS more at Make Your Move Fans including pictures, posters, and news on a festival in Los Angeles taking place this weekend for the movie. A must read!!
ADDING: And what a fun tweet this is from director Duane Adler that says, “Good morning @kconusa! Good morning world! Great news to wake up to isn’t it!? Our date! Been a long road but finally here!”
Hey Guys! Don’t miss reading an exclusive new interview with the Duane Adler (the screen write and director of “Make Your Move 3D”) at Make Your Move Fans when you get a chance. You can read how Duane was inspired to make the movie as well as how he compares it to his Step Up Movies(which I love love!) and much more. Below is just a little take.
Make Your Move Fans: People are comparing Make Your Move 3D to the Step Up movies. Is that a fair comparison?
Duane: I’ve been fortunate to be part of some amazing filmmaking teams on other dance movies, specifically “Save the Last Dance” and of course “Step Up,” so I think my involvement on MYM is going to start that comparison. I think our dance and our story is unique to itself, though, and I think audiences will find that true when they see the film. Our dance and dance fusion styles are unlike any of the other dance films, and the multi-cultural love story is a further fusion, plus it’s a love story we don’t often see on film. MYM has an underdog story, too, and shares the story of characters who dream of better lives and goals. Those are human themes that resonate well in film, and inspire audiences when watching, whether it’s MYM or “Step Up” or a number of other wish-fulfilling premises. “Step Up” films are unique; I like to think MAKE YOUR MOVE is equally uniquely its own.
Much more at Make Your Move Fans including some pics of Derek with the cast. Note that this is only Part 1. THREE more parts are coming. So, stay tuned.
