Rammstein’s ‘Paris’ Concert Film to Receive Theatrical Release
Earlier in the week, Rammstein announced a new concert film, Paris, was on the way, teasing fans with an over the top, thrilling trailer (separate from the one above) full of explosions and some downright quirky elements of their notorious live show. Without a home theater setup, how can you experience the heart-pounding bass and the awe-inspiring pyrotechnics in full? By leaving the house and heading to a movie theater that will be screening Paris, that's how!
The film will see an international theatrical release as The Hollywood Reporter has detailed that Picturehouse Entertainment has picked up worldwide rights (excluding Germany, Austria and Switzerland) to Paris. Screenings will be held in roughly 350 cinemas across the globe, including a handful of cities in the U.S. like New York City, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Showtime and ticket information can be found at the dedicated Rammstein, Paris website.
The footage for the concert film was culled from two of the band's 2012 performances in Paris, France, all strung together by renowned director Jonas Akerlund. His film credits include directing music videos for rock and metal acts like Blink-182 and Satyricon as well as worldwide pop sensations Madonna and Lady Gaga.
Rammstein are also expected to release a new album this year. Fans have endured a hiatus from the group as well as a seven-plus year studio drought following the release of 2009's Liebe ist für alle da. In June, the German industrial powerhouse debuted a new song, referred to as "Ramm 4," at the Gods of Metal festival, indicating they've been working on new music.
