Fox to Release 3D GLEE LIVE! IN CONCERT! On August 12th

     May 4, 2011


Because the mediocrity that is Glee hasn’t dominated enough of our culture, Fox is now planning to bring it into movie theaters.  Variety reports that on August 12th, Fox will release Glee Live! In Concert! in 3D for a two-week limited engagement.  The cast is going on tour of North America starting in Las Vegas on May 21st and ending in New York on June 18th before flying off to the UK. The concert film will feature the original cast singing covers of “I’m a Slave 4 U,” “Raise Your Glass,” “Teenage Dream,” and “Lucky,” as well as the original songs “Loser Like Me,” “Hell to the No!” and “Get it Right.”  The August 12th release date sets the movie against 30 Minutes or Less, The Help, and vying for 3D screens with Final Destination 5.

A concert film is kind of perfect for Glee because it highlights what the show is now all about: selling songs.  At its outset, Glee had the potential to balance story and musical numbers, but then the characters and the plot took a backseat to cranking out as many iTunes downloads as possible.  The show has essentially become American Idol with a threadbare plot and poorly-written characters, which is probably why it’s so popular.

    Dear Matt,

    Your writing is getting poorer by the day. Collider is becoming devoid of any real news or journalism simply because of the fact that you think people give a shit what you think. Head on down to your local community college and take an entry level reporting class. It’s not your job to voice your opinion: you’re not reviewing anything, you are simply pushing out news. Your insistent use of opinion is a large reason why blogs like this remain as throwaway, and unreliable sources for finding out anything in the entertainment industry.

    That is all.

    -Your Mom

    Definitely believe that that you stated. Your favourite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest factor to consider of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed even as other people think about issues that they just do not know about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing with no need side-effects , other people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thank you
