Since their appearance on The X Factor (UK), Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson – better known as One Direction – have taken the world by storm. It’s only been three years since the boys surged into the spotlight, but in that time they’ve released two chart topping, multi-platinum albums that have broken numerous records. 1D has also embarked on two sold-out, international tours, the latest of which fans can catch a glimpse of in the new film, One Direction: This is Us.
Director Morgan Spurlock (Supersize Me) takes a behind the scenes look at the band’s 2012-2013 Take Me Home Tour, as well as their lives off-stage. Those who don’t know a lot about One Direction will also see clips from their performances on The X Factor, as well as commentary from their mentor/benefactor, Simon Cowell. Unlike many other music documentaries, and to show how much their fans mean to them, the film will also include touching stories uploaded to YouTube by loyal fans. Topping it all off is the premiere of the track “Best Song Ever” from their upcoming album, Where We Are.
If you love, or even just like One Direction, you can’t pass up the opportunity to catch One Direction: This is Us in standard 2D or stunning 3D. Check showtimes and tickets here.
