Glee Live! 3D is set to be released this summer, August 12th! Twentieth Century Fox announced today plans to release a movie based on the summer concert performances for a two week engagement. If you were unable to snag tickets to any of the Glee concerts, this sounds like it’s just for you!
Twentieth Century Fox Television and Twentieth Century Fox Film have partnered with GLEE creator Ryan Murphy to produce GLEE LIVE! 3D!, a film of the blockbuster “Glee Live! In Concert!” North American tour. Twentieth Century Fox will release the film – for a special limited two-week engagement — in theaters everywhere on August 12, 2011.
GLEE LIVE! 3D! will enable fans – or, “Gleeks” — who were unable to obtain tickets to the sold-out shows, or who live in markets not included in the tour, or who just want to see it again, to experience the concert in the immersive magic of a 3D theatrical event.
Starring 14 members of the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning television show’s cast and shot live during the summer concerts, the movie will capture the unique concert experience along with special moments involving the characters themselves.
“This tour was all about going out and performing for our amazing fans who have supported our show from the beginning, but due to the limited time we had to travel during our hiatus, there were only so many cities we could get to before we had to resume work on the television series,” commented Murphy. “We knew that not every fan who wanted to attend a concert would get that opportunity. Now, thanks to our friends at Twentieth Century Fox Film, we’ll be able to bring the concert experience to movie theaters across the country in full three dimensional glory. We promise every passionate ‘Gleek’ a cinematic experience that will have them singing and dancing in the aisles.”
Kevin Tancharoen (“Fame,” “Mortal Kombat: Legacy” series) will direct the film.
GLEE LIVE! 3D! will include live performances of some of the show’s most memorable musical numbers, including “I’m a Slave 4 U,” “Raise Your Glass,” “Teenage Dream,” and “Lucky,” as well as the original songs that became chart-toppers such as “Loser Like Me,” “Hell to the No!” and “Get it Right,” and of course, the show’s anthem, “Don’t Stop Believin’.” The first “Glee” concert tour in 2010 was described by the Los Angeles Times as “triumphant,” while USA Today called the concerts “equal parts musical theater, giddy pop culture phenomenon and Journey-loving rock show.”
Tickets for “Glee Live! In Concert!” went on sale in February and are nearly sold out in all scheduled venues, prompting the studio to add additional shows for which limited tickets are still available. The concert series begins May 21 in Las Vegas with “Glee” stars Lea Michele (Rachel), Cory Monteith (Finn), Amber Riley (Mercedes), Chris Colfer (Kurt), Kevin McHale (Artie), Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina), Mark Salling (Puck), Dianna Agron (Quinn), Naya Rivera (Santana), Heather Morris (Brittany), Harry Shum, Jr. (Mike), Chord Overstreet (Sam), Darren Criss (Blaine), Ashley Fink (Lauren) and members of “The Warblers” performing an all-new singing and dancing celebration of the Emmy and Golden Globe Award-winning show.

PopWrap revealed a first look at the upcoming season of Pretty Little Liars!
Check out the spoilers after the cut:
Annabeth Gish (aka Pudge) would be joining the cast of “Pretty Little Liars” in season two as Dr. Anne Sullivan. Rosewood’s newest resident … who also happens to be a therapist assigned to find out what really happened to Ian in the belltower.
Looks like the girls are heading to therapy after the events of the Season Finale. Maybe they should go to the cops instead.
Are you excited for the new season?
Sue continues her reign of terror this week with a new objective. Kill the Glee club from within. What’s the best way to turn everyone against each other? Rumors. Blind items to be exact. Sue is hanging out with Terri dressed as Bowie and Ann Coulter. Sue then gets the idea to reinstate the school newspaper and dedicate it to writing gossip and not so blind items about the Glee club. Her mission gets a head start when Brittany accidentally outs Santana on her internet show.
Rachel asks Sam to prom but he turns her down pretty quickly. Now normally, I’d be calling him a douche at this point but because of his storyline this episode, I’ll be nicer to him. Rachel and Finn decide to have a stake out and spy on Sam. The first thing they see is Sam meeting Kurt at a motel. Now, no one more than me wants Kurt and Sam to happen like it was originally planned to, if only because the shipper name would have been Kum. However, I don’t think anyone is actually falling for this. There is obviously something else going on when the kids also spy Quinn meeting him there. Now unless Sam is into some freaky stuff with Kurt and Quinn, he’s innocent here. Quinn however, I understand them spying on. She’s a horrible girlfriend who has cheated twice before.
April is back in town and she’s here to be really really tiny and really really drunk for most of the episode. Will confides to her about his group crumbling to gossip and she reminds him that Fleetwood Mac was able to survive even the worst slander. Then she performs Dreams. This inspires Will to make their latest assignment, you guessed it, Fleetwood Mac songs. Meh. I thought we were done with the theme episodes. April is back to ask Will to come help her on Broadway which immediately spurs a rumor that he’s leaving the school. If only.
Artie is worried Brittany is emotionally and or physically cheating on him with Santana. He’s sure that Santana is manipulating her. This may have been true before but we know that she has genuine feelings for the girl now. When Brittany refuses to listen to him, Artie calls her stupid. This causes Brittany to run away in tears and Artie to wheel himself down the hall with a backup band performing Never Going Back Again. Are they over now? Will Artina finally come back to me? Santana privately serenades Brittany with Songbird but isn’t ready to come out yet. She instead fuels rumors that she’s hooking up with Karofsky in a car by a graveyard. Romantic.
Quinn and Finn don’t trust each other which makes I Don’t Want To Know the perfect song for them to sing together. When Rachel performs Go Your Own Way with her bedazzled mic and isn’t very shy about looking at Finn during it, Quinn declares that Finn is never to duet with her ever again. Much to the shock of Will, Rachel, and Finn. Rachel argues with Quinn and accuses her of hooking up with Sam. This forces Sam to reveal the real reason they’ve been meeting him at a motel. His family lost their home and were forced to sell their belongings and move in. Kurt and Quinn were helping him out. While I appreciate the show trying to make Sam relevant again with his own storyline, I wasn’t really touched when the kids bought him back his guitar and he cried. It was nice and all but it seemed a bit out of nowhere. His guitar is back just in time for the group to perform together singing Don’t Stop.
This episode wasn’t the best but I’m not really worried after seeing that promo for next week’s episode. HOLY CRAP.
Funniest Quotes of the Night:
Tina: I’d just like to clear up that little rumor about Asian men. Not true.
Finn: I know Kurt brought you clothes but I didn’t think sequined riding pants were your thing.
