Over the past decade, South Korean supergroup BTS has become the most famous musical group in the world. But not even the seven members of this trendsetting combo can escape certain realities of life. And so BTS is on hiatus for two years as members pursue individual projects and complete mandatory military service in South Korea.
As a way to both celebrate the group and send off the most recent BTS era, a new movie is coming to theaters in February. BTS: YET TO COME IN CINEMAS is a concert film based on the group's final performance in Busan, in October 2022, where BTS performed before 50,000 people. The performance was televised at the time, but this version has been completely revamped to create a new experience, complete with the most modern theatrical presentation possible.
The Most Cinematic BTS Experience Yet
The trailer for BTS: YET TO COME IN CINEMAS shows off the incredible scale of the band's stage production for the Busan concert. You can also see a shout-out from the band just below.
Additionally, the distributor teases us with a statement saying that we will "join RM, Jin, SUGA, j-hope, Jimin, V and Jung Kook in this special cinematic cut, re-edited and remixed for the big screen. Watch new close-up angles and a whole new view of the entire concert, BTS Yet To Come in Busan. Featuring hit songs from across the group's career, including “Dynamite,” “Butter” and “IDOL,” plus the first concert performance of “Run BTS” from the group’s latest album Proof.
“We look forward to collaborating once again with the teams at CJ 4DPlex, and HYBE to bring BTS’ awe-inspiring Busan concert to the big screen in this special cinematic cut,” Marc Allenby, CEO of Trafalgar Releasing, said. "The group’s engagement with audiences has always been perfectly suited to the cinema, and we are excited to welcome fans from all corners of the globe to this must-see celebration."
BTS In New Cinematic Formats
Most concert movies rely on sound and vision to capture the essence of a concert experience. BTS: YET TO COME IN CINEMAS goes a step further — or, for those who live near specific cinemas, several steps forward.
That's what the mention of groups like 4DPlex is about. Where possible, you can see BTS: YET TO COME IN CINEMAS with the immersive effects of 4DX, meaning that seats will move in time to the music, adding an extra thump and punch to the group's hits.
Additionally, there will be ScreenX presentations of the movie, too, through which "fans can experience our movie completely through enlarged screens with 3 different angles." Those who get to see the movie in either of the 4DX or ScreenX presentations will live out a BTS concert unlike any other.
BTS: YET TO COME IN CINEMAS opens on February 1.
