We're all about to get served, again.

C. Brian, director of popular dance film "You Got Served," will release a kid's version of the movie, "Battlefield America," due out on June 1.

Set in Long Beach, Ca., "Battlefield …" tells the story of young businessman Sean Lewis (Marques Houston), who hires a professional dance instructor to teach a group of troublesome kids hip-hop moves. The youth prove to be quick learners and find themselves immersed in tough battle competitions.

The trailer is filled with combative scenes of tweens street dancing and fighting. In addition to Houston, who also co-write the film, "Battlefield ..." stars Lynn Whitfield, KPWR morning show host Big Boy, 102.7 KIIS FM personality JoJo Wright, and Chris Jones ("You Got Served").

"You Got Served" opened at No. 1 at the box office during Super Bowl weekend in 2004. The popularity of the movie paved the way for MTV's "Randy Jackson Presents America's Best Dance Crew."
