U2 FANS TO GET BELATED CHRISTMAS GIFT

U2 fans will get a belated Christmas gift from the group this month in the form of "U23D," a concert film that creators are billing as "the first live-action movie shot and exhibited in breakthrough digital 3D." Captured during the South American leg of U2's Vertigo Tour, the film will premiere Jan. 18 at Colorado's Sundance Film Festival, and then will hit theaters in select cities Jan. 23.

Culled from more than 100 hours of footage shot with "the largest collection of 3D camera technology ever used on a single project," "U23D" features the band performing a set that includes hits such as "Pride," "New Year's Day," "Sunday Bloody Sunday," "Streets," and "Vertigo."

The film will screen "in many of the 1,200-plus theaters around the world equipped with digital 3D projection systems, and will also be seen in IMAX 3D cinemas, which are located in 38 countries," according to the site.
