Duran Duran will take over U.S. movie theaters on Wednesday, September 10 for a one-night-only showing of the film Duran Duran: Unstaged, which showcases the band's concert at the Mayan Theatre in Los Angeles, which was part of the "American Express Unstaged" concert series that celebrated the band's All You Need Is Now album and world tour.
Screenvision in alliance with Phase 4 Films will screen the film in over 300 locations.
The film was directed by the inimitable David Lynch (The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet and Mulholland Dr.) as part of the "American Express Unstaged" series.
Lynch didn't just film live footage, since that would have been so zzzzzz of him. Instead, he captured the band's performance in a groundbreaking, creative way that will provide fans with a visually stunning in-theater viewing experience.
When it was originally filmed, the director layered images that he had created in advance of the show —live action, animation, special effects and more— on top of the band's performance footage as it was being filmed live. The technique created an ocular event unlike anything ever seen before.
Special guests at the show included Gerard Way (My Chemical Romance), Beth Ditto (Gossip), Kelis and longtime collaborator, Mark Ronson.
