PRESS STATEMENT FROM COLUMBIA PICTURES:
"The first official trailer of the film 1D3D showcasing London-based global music sensation One Direction is now online and can be seen here at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrQrFpN0LHA.
"Acclaimed documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me) produced and directed the film which shows an access-all-areas, behind-the-scenes look into what it’s like to be One Direction today. "This is an incredible opportunity and an amazing moment in time for the band,” said Spurlock. “To capture this journey and share it with audiences around the world will be an epic undertaking that I am proud to be a part of."
"One Direction – Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson – were discovered by Simon Cowell on the U.K.’s The X Factor in 2010. The band quickly gained a following to become one of the competition’s all-time most popular acts, finishing in the final three and garnering a gigantic and loyal fanbase along the way.
"In March 2012, One Direction’s debut album, Up All Night, made U.S. history, as it was the first time a U.K. group’s debut album entered the U.S. Billboard 200 chart at No. 1. The band has sold over 13 million records worldwide. Today, One Direction released their sophomore album, Take Me Home, which includes the No. 1 single, “Live While We’re Young.”
"Opening across the Philippines on December 11, 2013, 1D3D will be distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International."
