The wait is over! Sony has released the first trailer for “One Direction: This Is Us,” the concert film about British pop stars One Direction.
Produced by Music A&R executive and “The X Factor” Judge Simon Cowell, “This Is Us” documents the pop megastars’ meteoric rise to fame, from their humble hometown beginnings and competing on “The X-Factor” in 2010, to embarking on a major world tour and performing at London's famed O2 Arena.
“This Is Us” is directed by “Supersize Me” filmmaker Morgan Spurlock and produced by music A&R executive Simon Cowell, among others. Cowell discovered One Direction on the U.K.’s “The X Factor” in 2010. The band, featuring Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, quickly gained a following and has sold more than 13 million records worlwide.
“One Direction: This Is Us,” premieres in theatres on Aug. 30, 2013.
