Once upon a time a 3D movie was exciting because it was rare, but in recent months it is more difficult to find a movie that is not in 3D than it is to find a gas station with decent prices; how will this effect Glee: The 3D Concert Movie?
The movie, which is scheduled to be released on August 12, for only two weeks, is directed by Kevin Tancharoen and stars the cast of the popular TV show “Glee,” including Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley, Chris Colfer, Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz, Mark Salling, Dianna Agron, Naya Rivera, Heather Morris, Harry Shum, Chord Overstreet, Darren Criss and Ashley Fink.
Boxoffice.com wrote Glee: The 3D Movie, “will try to capitalize on the immense popularity of the Fox show. The big question mark is whether or not the 3D angle will entice people to leave their homes and pay for a show they normally get for free. If that’s not an issue, [then] this one could become something of a break-out hit.”
The movie will feature the cast performing songs from the summer tour Glee Live! In Concert! and the backstage moments, or possibly mishaps. Boxoffice.com estimates the “Glee” movie will net $16,000,000 on opening weekend and make a total of about $37,000,000.
“We knew that not every fan who wanted to attend a concert would get that opportunity,” said Glee creator Ryan Murphy to Hollywood Reporter. “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.”
