Award-Winning Choreographer Paul Becker is closing out the Netflix trilogy The Kissing Booth with the global release of the third and final movie. Becker has choreographed all three films in the series directed by Vince Marcello. The third instalment stars fan favourites Joey King, Joel Courtney, Jacob Elordi, Taylor Zakhar Perez, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Meganne Young and Molly Ringwald. Becker was nominated for the 2021 MTV Movie Award for Best Musical Moment for “Lost in the Wild” from The Kissing Booth 2.
“Whenever I am asked about some of the most fun I have had creating choreography, the Kissing Booth franchise checks all the boxes for me. And it’s quite surreal to think that I choreographed all three films. In the first film, Director Vince Marcello really used dance and DDR with purpose in moving the story forward and as a choreographer, I appreciated that and it was a fun collaboration,” said Paul Becker. “On the second and third film, I decided to collaborate with my choreography partner Tori Caro who I worked with on Julie and The Phantoms. I feel that this collaboration, along with the clever guidance from Vince, awesome cinematography and great performances, was a perfect storm of entertainment on the screen.”
The Kissing Booth 3 picks up right where the second movie left off and sees Elle Evans (Joey King) deciding if she will be moving across the country with her boyfriend, Noah (Jacob Elrodi), or fulfilling her lifelong promise to go to the same university as her BFF, Lee ( Joel Courtney). Whose heart will Elle break?
Becker added, “As choreographers for The Kissing Booth 3, it was our responsibility to close out the third instalment with a bang. When Vince first told me that he wanted a big epic flash mob musical number, he didn’t have to ask us twice. The musical comedy, joy and heart that went into this dance is apparent on the screen, and I can’t wait for the world to see it. Choreographed by myself and Tori, once the viewers watch this infectious dance, I’m sure they will be on their feet dancing!”
The Kissing Booth 3’s run time is 1 hour and 52 minutes. It is rated TV-14. To stream visit: www.netflix.com/TheKissingBooth3.
