More2screen Appointed By Eagle Rock to Distribute Queen Concert Movie to Digital Cinemas Worldwide

More2Screen has been appointed by Eagle Rock Entertainment to distribute momentous concert movie Hungarian Rhapsody: Queen Live In Budapest ’86 to digital cinemas worldwide (ex–Canada and Japan) from 20 September 2012.  

Remastered in high definition and 5.1 surround sound, this special cinema event includes 25 minutes of never–before–seen footage following legends of rock, Queen, from just after their legendary performance at Live Aid through the year leading up to the concert in Budapest. This will be Queen gold dust for the band’s millions of fans across the world: they can dress up, sing along and be part of this celebration of Queen’s enduring global appeal.

On 27 July 1986 Queen performed the largest concert ever staged at the Nepstadium, Budapest, in front of 80,000 ecstatic fans. With three years to go before the fall of the Berlin Wall and Hungary still in effect ‘behind the Iron Curtain’, the concert was of such significance to the Hungarian authorities that a group of Hungary’s top film cameramen and technicians were brought together to record it.

The resulting concert film features many of Queen’s favourite tracks including Bohemian RhapsodyCrazy Little Thing Called LoveI Want To Break Free and We Are The Champions. The concert was part of the hugely successful Magic Tour that, poignantly, was Freddie Mercury’s last tour with the band.  

Christine Costello, Managing Director, More2Screen comments: “We’re delighted to be working with Eagle Rock Entertainment again, and to have the opportunity to bring this fantastic Queen concert movie to digital cinemas worldwide. No one needs to be told that Queen is one of the all-time greatest live bands ever and of course we all know that magnificent catalogue of songs. But fans are in for even more of a treat with the additional, never–before–seen documentary footage of the band after their show–stealing performance at Live Aid in 1985.”

Andrew Winter of Eagle Rock Entertainment, says of the collaboration with More2Screen: “Hungarian Rhapsody: Queen Live In Budapest ’86showcases one of the world’s most successful bands staging one of the biggest stadium concerts ever held in Eastern Europe which will make this a truly special cinema event for fans.
