'One Direction: This Is Us' new movie poster #1DThisIsUs


Press release and photo from Columbia Pictures

A mosaic of thousands of original photos gives once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fans to come together to “create” movie memorabilia.


In what has become a frenzied digital search by 1D fans, One Direction and Sony Pictures unveiled the official movie poster April 18 for their upcoming 3D film, One Direction: This Is Us.  The poster includes an amazing array of fan-submitted photos from around the world.

Paying tribute to those that helped catapult the band to success, the poster’s backdrop is a mosaic made up of thousands of Little Things – the fans themselves.  Hundreds of thousands of people have flooded the official site and submitted photos since February in the hopes that their snapshot will be featured in the movie poster.

The tribute poster also “comes to life” when fans use their smart phones to scan the Zapcode on the poster unlocking an augmented reality experience and exclusive video content of the band. The Zappar app is free and available for download in the App Store or Google Play.

A digital version of the poster, which will include even more fan photos within the mosaic, will launch online in early May at the One Direction: This Is Us website.  Participants will be able to locate and share their photo across multiple social networks.

The movie is directed by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me), and will hit theaters in the U.S. and the Philippines on Friday, August 30th.

One Direction – Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson – were discovered by Simon Cowell on the U.K.’s “The X Factor” in 2010. The band quickly gained a following to become one of the competition’s all-time most popular acts, finishing in the final three and garnering a gigantic and loyal fanbase along the way. In March 2012, One Direction’s debut album, “Up All Night,” made U.S. history, as it was the first time a U.K. group’s debut album entered the U.S. Billboard 200 chart at No. 1. The band has sold over 29 million records worldwide. In November 2012, One Direction released their sophomore album, “Take Me Home,” which includes the No. 1 single, “Live While We’re Young,” and are currently on a sold-out world tour.

Simon Cowell, Adam Milano, Morgan Spurlock, and Ben Winston are producing the film.  Executive Producers are Richard Griffiths, Harry Magee, Will Bloomfield, Doug Merrifield, Jeremy Chilnick, and Matthew Galkin. Follow @1DThisIsUs on Twitter for exclusive updates about the movie. The official movie account on Twitter will announce news using the hashtag #1DThisIsUs.
