‘Step Up Revolution’ Won’t Be Changed

STEP UP: REVOLUTION
Summit

There was word out that because ‘Step Up Revolution‘ has a scene where characters break in to a party while wearing body armor and gas masks, and then use gas grenades to threaten the guests the film might be altered. Worry no more, says Summit.

The company released a statement today, here it is:

Summit Entertainment’s STEP UP REVOLUTION is an uplifting film that celebrates the redemptive power of dance. There is a brief scene in the film in which a troop of dancers enter a room wearing gas masks as props and the dancers immediately go into a choreographed routine. Because of last week’s tragic events in Colorado, Summit immediately removed television advertising that briefly showcased that scene from the film. The scene also briefly appeared in a trailer released three months ago that the studio is no longer actively servicing. Having taken these steps, Summit will open this inspirational, nonviolent film in theatres nationwide this weekend as originally edited.

There are two ways to read this. One is they think editing their film because of the events is some form of censorship, and won’t be cowed by the actions of an evil person. The more cynical take is that with a release date upon them, it would cost them too much money to change the film, and as the film was done on a budget, it’s not worth the effort – even if it does cost them some box office.
