UPDATE: That Summit Entertainment meeting discussing the scene is over – and the studio is leaving it in the film. The problem was that the pic opens Friday in 2,500 theaters. What audiences will see when Step Up Revolution screens is a scene apparently where the dancers steal into a party, wearing body vests and gas masks and using gas grenades to threaten the guests. After last night’s press screenings, it was the talk of the media’s conversations on Twitter. Summit did remove Tv ads howcasing the scene, and isn’t rotating a trailer using the scene, either. Here is the studio’s statement:

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.

PREVIOUS… EXCLUSIVE 4:00 PM: I’ve learned that a Summit Entertainment meeting is scheduled for 5 PM today to discuss the situation. Problem is, the movie opens this Friday in 2,500 theaters. What audiences will see when Step Up Revolution screens is a scene apparently where the dancers steal into a party, wearing body armor and gas masks and using gas grenades to threaten the guests. After last night’s press screenings, it was the talk of the media’s conversations on Twitter.
