Not necessarily they lifted that from an interview in america when asked about a 3D movie they said no idea then Harry made the hair poking in eye comment but he was referring to if it happened not it was.

You just got to love the Sun

BUT it wouldn't surprise me if there was one as am sure it would sell seats in bucketloads
I think there will be a film, but the Sun are making up the amount of money to be made. They will claim they broke the news.
DM have picked it up as well. Lol!!

As usual. They always steal news from other papers.

There is definitely going to be some sort of film. It was put on the Sony/Columbia release schedule for 2013 a few weeks ago. I remember posting about it at the time.

RE: 3D Film

I would do a combo of both. I would have some scripted shenanigans in between live concert stuff. Maybe like Purple Rain (but not melodramatic like that). Purple Rain was essentially a concert movie with a very flimsy plot line weaving in an out of the performances. It was a massive hit.

another week, another billboard chart history for 1D:


Album Sales: John Mayer holds on to No. 1, One Direction makes chart history

John Mayer may be feeling dumpy and “humiliated” about that big meanie Taylor Swift, but the fact that his fifth album, Born and Raised, has just logged a second week atop the Billboard 200 should cheer him up.

One thing Mayer couldn’t hold off? One Direction’s DVD release of Up All Night: The Live Tour, which sold 76,000 copies. As Yahoo‘s Paul Grein explains, this marks the first time ever that the No. 1 music DVD release has outsold the No. 1 album.

Sales-wise they must be very close to Leona if they have not surpassed her.

I think they could prove to be the biggest success story out of any talent show—in the UK or US.

Just looking at addboard and One Thing seems to be picking up steam. And I'm quite surprised at the numbers from the US after quite a while and it's 40k for albums this week (top 5 still!), 120k+ for singles and 76k for the DVD. How many more million YouTube views as well? They seem to be holding up far better in the US than they did in the UK.

SYCO ought to move quickly and get a second album out in November for the UK and US with another great lead single like WMYB. Does anyone know if this is the plan? Or will it be longer?

Those sales figures are incredible. Hopefully another great single out in November.
