We've seen Chris Brown's moves light up the stage, so we can only imagine how impressive they'll be on the big screen. 

The singer landed a leading role in the upcoming 3D dance film Battle of the Year, and we've got an exclusive first look at the poster, featuring Brown along with co-stars Laz Alonso and Lost's Josh Holloway.

Battle of the Year is a hip hop-fueled drama about an international dance crew tournament that attracts all the best teams from around the world, but the Americans haven’t won in fifteen years. Dante (Alonso) wants to put the country that started the Sport back on top, so he enlists his friend Blake (Holloway), who was a championship basketball coach, to coach his team.

The pair assemble a Dream Team of all the best dancers across the country. With only three months until Battle of the Year, Blake has to use every tactic he knows to get twelve talented individuals to come together as a team if they're going to bring the Trophy back to America where it started.

The film is inspired by the world championships held annually in France. 

Battle of the Year opens in theaters on September 13.
