How can it be? Believe me: A-ha The Movie will be heading to your TV, as the band celebrates its 40th anniversary: more here.
Add to the pipeline of music-centric films an upcoming film about the Norwegian pop band A-ha. Entitled A-ha: The Movie, this one’s a 40th anniversary documentary, that charts the band’s journey from a small town in Norway to becoming a global sensation (right through to recording the theme tune for the Bond movie The Living Daylights).
The band ultimately drew a crowd of nearly 200,000 to one of their gigs, and continue to work together today, and the new film – from Thomas Robsahm – follows them behind the scenes, and includes plenty of previously unseen footage as well.
The film has been picked up for US distribution by Lightyear Entertainment, and given the popularity of A-ha in the UK in the 1980s, it was just a matter of time before it made it to these shores as well. It sounds just the kind of film that could shine on TV too. Other gags we were going to try and work in revolved around ‘Cry Wolf’ and ‘Take On Me’, but we can already sense we’re stretching.
Modern Films has now bought the movie for UK release, and plans to release it on over 100 screens around the country. It’ll be here on May 27th 2022. More as we hear it.
