Appetite for Democracy’s release was announced on Facebook, and the production company behind the movie, Rock Fuel Media, have confirmed that it will be shown in theatres, on TV and DVD later this year too.
Wendy Mitchell, Screen Daily’s editor, said of the 3D format, “It doesn’t quite feel like being at the concert but it does feel like the next best thing. It brings so much more to a concert film to have that third dimension.”
Mitchell added, “It goes from being something we’ve all seen and experienced a lot, to an event, an experience, especially when you’re going to the cinema to see it. It’s very immersive, you get more of the staging of a big concert.”
Guns N’ Roses will follow U2, Katy Perry, and Metallica, by releasing a 3D movie. Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never currently holds the honor for the highest grossing music concert movie in the US, having grossed around $98.6 million at the box office.
Mitchell also went on to note, “For a band like Guns N’ Roses, it’s not trying to be pop perfection like Katy Perry. People want to see them rocking out and sweaty even if they are a bit older. A lot of their fans grew up with them, they don’t have to be perfect.”
