GLEE, the multi-generational phenomenon that has inspired millions to embrace their inner-Gleek, will soon bring them together to experience the characters, music and magic in a whole new way, via the immersive magic of a 3D motion picture theatrical event… GLEE THE 3D CONCERT MOVIE.
Twentieth Century Fox Film and Twentieth Century Fox Television have partnered with GLEE creator Ryan Murphy to produce GLEE: THE 3D CONCERT MOVIE, a film of the blockbuster “Glee Live! In Concert!” North American tour. Twentieth Century Fox will release the film – for a special limited two-week engagement — in theaters everywhere on August 12, 2011.
The film will enable fans – or, “Gleeks” — who were unable to obtain tickets to the sold-out shows, or who live in markets not included in the tour, or who just want to see it again, to enjoy the unique concert experience. Additionally, the film’s on-stage performances are interwoven with intimate behind-the-scenes looks at favorite characters, as they’ve never been seen before.
“This tour was all about going out and performing for our amazing fans who have supported our show from the beginning, but due to the limited time we had to travel during our hiatus, there were only so many cities we could get to before we had to resume work on the television series,” commented Murphy. “We knew that not every fan who wanted to attend a concert would get that opportunity. Now, thanks to our friends at Twentieth Century Fox Film, we’ll be able to bring the concert experience to movie theaters across the country in full three dimensional glory. We promise every passionate ‘Gleek’ a cinematic experience that will have them singing and dancing in the aisles.”
Adds Dante Di Loreto, who produces the film along with Ryan Murphy, and serves as an executive producer on the series: “This is a film the whole family can enjoy. It’s a joyful musical experience. We find that not only do our core fans love the concert, but people of every age and background who come to the show have a great time.”
3D provides yet another benefit, says Di Loreto. “The format gives us a chance to provide a more intimate experience than sitting in an arena watching the live show, or watching it on television; it takes it to the next level. With the film, fans will feel like they’re on the stage with the performers. We felt that was an exciting opportunity to engage fans in a way not possible in another medium.”
Director Kevin Tancharoen (“Fame,” “Mortal Kombat: Legacy” series) elaborates: “The 3D movie experience brings audiences closer to the characters they love – and to what these characters do best.” Tancharoen also notes the importance of the backstage “narratives”: “We’re taking audiences backstage, for an intimate, unscripted look at what the characters are experiencing before they go on stage.”
GLEE THE 3D CONCERT MOVIE will include live performances of some of the show’s most memorable musical numbers, including “I’m a Slave 4 U,” “Raise Your Glass,” “Teenage Dream,” and “Lucky,” as well as the original songs that became chart-toppers such as “Loser Like Me,” and of course, the show’s anthem, “Don’t Stop Believin’.”
The music from GLEE continues to be one of the driving forces behind this cultural phenomenon. To date the studio-recorded versions of the 23 songs appearing in GLEE THE 3D CONCERT MOVIE (Motion Picture Soundtrack) have sold nearly six million tracks. To date over 34 million GLEE songs have been digitally downloaded, with over 10 million albums sold worldwide. GLEE THE 3D CONCERT MOVIE (Motion Picture Soundtrack) is available now for pre-order at iTunes and Amazon and will be released August 9.
GLEE THE 3D CONCERT MOVIE was filmed over two days at the Glee Live! In Concert! events at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
GLEE THE 3D CONCERT MOVIE stars Dianna Agron (Quinn), Chris Colfer (Kurt), Darren Criss (Blaine), Kevin McHale (Artie), Lea Michele (Rachel), Cory Monteith (Finn), Heather Morris (Brittany), Amber Riley (Mercedes), Naya Rivera (Santana), Mark Salling (Puck), Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina), Harry Shum, Jr. (Mike), Chord Overstreet (Sam), Ashley Fink (Lauren) and members of “The Warblers” perform an all-new singing and dancing celebration of the show.
