U2 in 3D: The Movie

Posted on December 28, 2007 Under Music

I just received an invitation to check out the screening of a new and interesting U2 film, and the title U23D Movie really caught my eye. It’s the world’s first ever live-action 3D concert movie, featuring, well Bono and his sunglass-clad group, U2. As they put it, the film is a marriage between innovative digital 3D imagery and 5.1 Surround Sound, which creates an immersive theatrical experience. Shot in South America and directed by Irish artist Catherine Owens, this looks to be a real treat. Pop over and check out the trailer — I’ll be sure to let you know how the screening is next week in New York. No word if it’s IMAX or if I’ll be putting on retro 3D glasses for the show, anyone know how this works?
