1DMovieOne Direction: This Is Us Movie

You might probably know this already, but One Direction: This Is Us (rated PG) comes to theaters tomorrow!!!! I am a little bit excited so I wanted to share some beautiful photos from the world premiere of the film in London, and a few behind-the-scenes secrets. First a photo:1D_Premiere1 Global superstars, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson introduce to you their big screen debut: One Direction: This Is Us! YAYYY!!!

World Premiere Of  'One Direction This Is Us'From X-Factor in 2010 to instant smashdom, their debut album, Up All Night, released in October 2011, achieved a feat never before achieved by a British band: entering the U.S. Billboard chart at number one with their debut record. I first fell in love with them in February 2012, when they gave us this awesome and hilarious interview. (Notice how interested Niall and Louis are in Marie’s New York accent. . . . foreshadowing “Best Song Ever.”)

The band’s sophomore album, Take Me Home turned 2012 into World Premiere Of  'One Direction This Is Us'a banner year for the boys. The album’s first single, “Live While We’re Young,” went straight to number one, and Take Me Home topped the charts in “turty-seven” countries (spoken in Niall’s Irish accent).

In July, they released “Best Song Ever,” a track written specifically for the film. The fun and cheeky video for the song broke records on VEVO with 12.4 million views in one day, making it the most viewed debut video ever on the platform.

World Premiere Of  'One Direction This Is Us'The director Morgan Spurlock filmed in various locales for almost six months, including the band’s performance in Mexico City in early June, 2013. The behind-the-scenes footage, which runs the gamut from backstage mischief before the show to touching hometown scenes, like Harry working at the family bakery, amounted to 500 hours of material. The boys were instrumental in helping Spurlock and the editors pick the most choice moments. Says Spurlock, “They’ve given really insightful feedback about things that are very personal to them . . . to things that they remembered that we shot that we have World Premiere Of  'One Direction This Is Us'forgotten about, and to remind us to dig and find. It was like, ‘Oh my gosh, you’re right, that was a great moment.’”

Adds Spurlock, “You feel like you really do get to become a part of this journey and these boys and this band. I think every One Direction fan should take someone who isn’t a One Direction fan, because I think when people see the movie, they’ll see a different side to these boys that they probably didn’t think World Premiere Of  'One Direction This Is Us'existed or they didn’t think they would enjoy. And I bet they’ll convert a lot more fans than they think they will.” (Harry says, That means YOU!”)

Is Spurlock a 1D fan? It’s not enough that they’re “five good looking guys that get put together in a band. That happens all the time. But the fact that, you know, they actually had the talent and the ability and the drive to kind of push it as far as they have, and continue to do, is remarkable. I’ve seen thirty-plus One Direction concerts at this point,” says Spurlock. “I am like a hardcore Directioner now!”1184625 - ONE DIRECTION

You and me both, Spurlock! I hope you all have a lovely time watching the movie. Leave a Comment to tell me if it lives up to your expectations. And PS, happy 20th birthday today, Liam!
