We've been (somewhat impatiently) waiting for the dance movie of the summer and it's finally here! Step Up: Revolution opens this weekend with breakout stars Ryan Guzman and Kathryn McCormick dancing their butts off. Ryan Guzman's character, Sean, is the co-founder of a flash mob group that incorporates a myriad of dance styles and street art into their mobs. Kathryn McCormick plays Emily, the daughter of a hotel owner who quits school to dance -- against her father's wishes, of course.

The latest movie from Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden, (the same team behind the critically acclaimed Half Nelson) is a thoroughly enjoyable reality check. Sugar is a sports film, but instead of getting caught up in clichés, the film shines a light on the ramifications of MLB baseball recruitment in the Dominican Republic.

4AM is usually a pretty quiet time of night in any city, even one that never sleeps like New York. But last night, appropriately under a shroud of darkness, hundreds upon hundreds of people (myself and Latina's entertainment editor Angie Romero included) lined up at theaters across America, coffee or Red Bull in hand, to be one of the first to see this summer's most anticipated movie, The Dark Knight. Most bought tickets weeks in advance. Many had spent upwards of four hours waiting in line in the middle of the night.

One of the revelations in Hancock is that the reluctant superhero doesn’t know who he is—a condition that not only haunts him but the film itself as it tries to stretch the very definition of the superhero movie. The problem? The movie experiments in two different directions: During the first half of the movie, we get Will Smith as a hard-drinking, bitter pain in the ass with superhuman strength, who can fly, stop bullets, cut glass with his bare hands and is pretty much invincible.
