The first trailer for Glee: The 3D Concert Movie has been released today. Hitting theatres on August 12th, the film is a 3D version of the recent Glee concert tour, aka a money grab. Fans will undoubtedly love it but unless you enjoy the show, I can’t see any reason to go out and see this.
Admittedly, the kids here are very talented and I’m sure they put on a good concert but personally, I have no desire to see this. I used to watch the show and while the singing and dancing is quite good, the show itself is horrible. The first season was alright but after that it went downhill and the only reason people tune in anymore is to see the performances.
Considering this film is just that, performances, it may do well. None of the extra filler found in the show will be here, which is a welcome thought. Still, I’m not at all eager to see this and unless you’re a Gleek, I don’t think you’ll be running out to theatres for this one either.
The film will star the majority of the show’s cast, included here are 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.
