The concert docu One Direction: This Is Us will screen in theaters beginning Friday with an additional 20 minutes of footage and four songs not in the original cut of the movie. The songs will be decided on by Twitter votes by the boy band’s voracious fans. “We’re overwhelmed by the response to the film, so we’re thrilled to be able to release this extended cut of the film for One Direction fans”, Jeff Blake, Chairman, Worldwide Marketing and Distribution for Sony Pictures, said in a release announcing the plan. “Followers can reach out on Twitter @1DThisIsUs with the songs they’d like to hear in the film — and go to the theater on Friday to see and hear which songs make the cut.” The Sony Pictures/TriStar movie opened over Labor Day weekend and has grossed about $50 million worldwide to date. Morgan Spurlock directed the documentary that follows the boy band on its recent Take Me Home Tour. The teen idols were discovered on Simon Cowell’s UK The X Factor in 2010. Since then, they’ve sold over 29 million records.
