BTS has successfully filmed two leading box-office movies and since they’ve got the Midas touch, they caught the attention of American filmmaker Baz Luhrmann, nominated for an Oscar for “Moulin Rouge” (2001). In an interview for The Hollywood Reporter, he said that there is a possibility of developing a project for the K-Pop group in Hollywood.
Asked if he was working on something with the k-pop group, Luhrmann smiled and tried not to answer directly. “Yeah, well you know, that’s…”, and that was it. However, he did not spare any compliments to the group. “It’s remarkable the way K-pop has found a way — when you see BTS play Citi Field, that’s a stadium. And not everyone is a Korean expert, only about a quarter of the audience, so that means that K-pop is able to speak to an audience with various backgrounds. So I really admire what they achieve”, he said.
Last year, BTS made its first debut on the big screen with the concert-film “Burn the Stage: The Movie”, a behind the scenes of “The Wings Tour”. The film would be shown in a single day, but due to success, it got extra sessions in two more days, breaking a record of One Direction in the United States.
In January 2019, BTS premiered the second concert-film, “Love Yourself In Seoul”, filmed in the Seoul Olympic Stadium. Screened in 95 countries and 3,800 theaters, the film broke another record and made Us$ 11.7 million at the box office in just three days.
