After releasing a brand-new mobile game, BTS announced they are releasing a new movie. On June 26, the K-pop act revealed their latest project, Bring the Soul: The Movie, on their official Twitter account.
Bring the Soul: The Movie will be BTS’s third feature film — following 2018’s Burn the Stage: The Movie and 2019’s Love Yourself in Seoul — and it’s set to release later this summer. Alongside the news, the group also unveiled the official poster for the movie.
The band’s previous theatrical releases were received with more than ample support. Burn the Stage grossed over $18.5 million during its limited run and, shortly after, Love Yourself in Seoul went on to become the largest event cinema release to date worldwide, surpassing One Direction’s former record.
Per the film’s official website, Bring the Soul, like the two previous films, will follow the septet’s 2018 Love Yourself tour, but more specifically, the European leg of the tour, covering the seven concerts the band held across four cities, including London, Berlin, and Amsterdam. In addition to the concert aspect, Bring the Soul is also reported to include never-before-seen stories from the Bangtan Boys on tour, and a recap from the members after their last 2018 European tour stop, in Paris.
On the day following the final concert of their Europe tour, on a rooftop in Paris, BTS tells their very own stories," the official synopsis reads, "from experiencing new cities to performing in front of thousands of ARMY across the globe. A glimpse into BTS’ world away from the stage, featuring intimate group discussions alongside spectacular concert performances from the tour. Shining brighter than any light on the stage, now the group invites us behind the spotlight.”
Bring the Soul, produced by Big Hit Entertainment in tandem with Camp Entertainment and distributed by Trafalgar Releasing, will debut in cinemas worldwide on August 7, with limited screenings.
"Trafalgar Releasing is thrilled to collaborate with Big Hit Entertainment again for Bring the Soul: The Movie, giving fans around the world an intimate opportunity to see the band following their landmark Love Yourself tour,” Trafalgar Releasing’s CEO wrote in a press release per Forbes. “The ARMYs are truly a community, and we are excited to bring them together for an all-new BTS experience in cinemas worldwide.”
Tickets for Bring the Soul will go on sale on July 3. And, of course, ARMYs are already preparing for a movie marathon.
