On August 29, the One Direction movie This Is Us was released to theaters in America. The movie gives a more in depth look of the members at the band: Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, and Liam Payne as they start their second world tour. The movie looks into their lives before they became a band and their current lives.

The movie premiered on August 20, 2013 in London’s Leicester Square. The band members’ families and many fans came to celebrate the movie’s release, but the movie was released in America on August 30th. With the success of the One Direction name in America the movie didn’t fail making 18 million dollars the first weekend.

This Is Us was absolutely amazing! They filmed during the boys’ tour throughout Europe and Asia. It gives an inside look at the members before they became a band, the present as One Direction, and also their plans for the future. The movie is based off a look at the boys’ recent Take Me Home tour with them on stage singing as if you were at the concert and a behind the scenes look at what they do when they aren’t performing.

The movie seemed to take a better glance at new world technology. For example they would take the boys from the film during their onstage concerts and add effects to them. This technology would slow down the running, or speed something up to make an effect to go along with the music they were playing. It also added certain elements that couldn’t be seen in a normal concert setting. Like putting drawings over the members when they were on stage to match what was showing on the screens behind them.

One aspect of the film that was quite touching was seeing the members interacting with their families. Spending so much time away from home, you can tell that they miss them dearly. It shows personal interviews with their parents and it is strikes some emotion. The love radiates from the movie screen and you can feel warmth in your heart. You tend to smile as they exclaim how proud they are of their little boys and all hard work they have done to pull off this.

One great thing about this movie was that it brought out the members true colors. You can see them being themselves and goofing around. Some of the pranks they pull are extremely funny, and you can’t help but smile. It helps you remember that they are just normal teenage boys that got thrown into fame.

This isn’t a movie for just One Direction fans, anyone who sees it will smile. The boys never fail to do something hilarious that will have that audience dying with laughter. It goes to show that they are just normal teenage boys just trying to see how much stuff they can get away with.
