One-Direction-This-Is-Us-PosterSince taking third place on The X Factor back in 2010, One Direction have become one of the best known boy bands around the world, touring all over the globe in the past three years. And for those of you who’ve never been to a show, as well as for those who have, the band will be making their big-screen debut this summer in One Direction: This Is Us.

The first teaser trailer for the documentary/concert movie launched back in February. And now Sony have released the first full-length trailer for the film.

And, as I write this, the following is somewhat amusingly trending on Twitter: #TheBandThatLostTheXFactorButWonTheWorld.

ONE DIRECTION: THIS IS US is a captivating and intimate all-access look at life on the road for the global music phenomenon. Weaved with stunning live concert footage, this inspiring feature film tells the remarkable story of Niall, Zayn, Liam, Harry and Louis’ meteoric rise to fame, from their humble hometown beginnings and competing on the X-Factor, to conquering the world and performing at London’s famed O2 Arena. Hear it from the boys themselves and see through their own eyes what it’s really like to be One Direction.

Directed by Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me) and produced by Simon Cowell, Adam Milano, Spurlock and Ben Winston.

Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me, Mansome) is the director on this, producing alongside Simon Cowell, Adam Milano, and Ben Winston.

The film was one of the many things Dave was treated to a taste of on his trip to Cancun earlier in the year, and you can read Part 1 of his Press Conference report if you missed it last week.

One Direction: This Is Us will be released in the UK on 29th August, with its US release date following a day later on August 30th.
