Stephen Kijak the director of the Backstreet Boys documentary has been nice enough to reply to fans and giving them updates on what’s going with the release of the documentary. Below is a summary of what he’s said over the last few days. Follow him on twitter. He may just post some more information.
Even though the sneak peek screening is sold out in NYC they are looking to expand the screening and add more tickets.
Other cities will be announced for the sneak peek sometime this week. The first batch of cities listed for a sneak peak in the US are all AMC theaters. Stephen has mentioned that Tugg.com is looking to reach out to theaters in some cities that aren’t AMC.
The sneak peek on January 29th will also include 20 minutes worth of bonus footage.
In regards to whether or not BSB will do a Meet & Greet at the LA premiere it’s uncertain right now. Stephen has said that it’s up to BSB. There will be a red carpet event and some other things. There maybe a online stream live from the premiere. It was talked about, but isn’t sure if it will happen.
On January 30th the documentary will be released to 10-12 in major cities and on VOD the same day. Gravitas should announce the Video on Demand providers that will have the documentary sometime this week.
News on the international release including the live stream acoustic performance will be announced on January 8th or 9th.
