Jolly ol’ Justin Bieber will help ring in the holidays this year with “Believe 3D,” his second feature film — this time chronicling the Believe tour and its various controversial moments — due out Christmas Day. The reveal of the “Believe 3D” official trailer on Friday (Nov. 15) further stoked anticipation for the Biebs’ latest cinematic experience, which follows not only his first film, 2011’s “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never,” but an influx of pop stars’ 3D showcases in general.
“Believe 3D” is the latest entry in a string of silver-screen offerings from pop sensations like Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers, Katy Perry and One Direction. Looking back at the last half-decade in 3D concert films, which one stands the test of time? Would you rather “Never Say Never” or take the “Best of Both Worlds”? It’s time for you to decide.
Vote now for the recent 3D concert film — “Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert,” “Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience,” “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never,” “Katy Perry: Part of Me” or “One Direction: This Is Us” — that stands head and shoulders above the rest!
Long before she was twerking or riding wrecking balls with nary a stitch of clothing, Miley Cyrus was starring in “Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert,” a 3D concert film capturing her Disney channel character in all of her teen-pop glory. That 2008 film featured a special guest appearance by the Jonas Brothers, who would release their own film, “Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience,” the following year. We’re getting a little misty-eyed thinking about the now-defunct trio performing “Burnin’ Up” in that one…
Two years later, Biebermania first took hold of the multiplex in “Never Say Never,” which documented the teen sensation’s rise to stardom while he was still in his “One Less Lonely Girl” days. “Katy Perry: Part of Me” was also deeply autobiographical, with the “Teenage Dream” singer allowing fans to peer into her life as she was winding down her California Dreams tour. Finally, One Direction capitalized on an impossibly successful two-year run last summer with “This Is Us,” which gave 1D fanatics a stopgap between last year’s “Take Me Home” album and the upcoming “Midnight Memories.”
There are other recent 3D concert documentaries, of course — who could forget “Michael Jackson’s This Is It,” or the “Glee 3D” film? However, which of these five movies made the biggest impact on you? After you vote, defend your choice in the comments section!
