Nuclear Blast has issued that the long-awaited Nightwish movie “Imaginaerum” will have its German premiere at the “Kino in der KulturBrauerei” in Berlin, on February 11, 2013. Screening in german cinemas will start on march, 18th.
Eagerly anticipated around the world, “Imaginaerum” creates a musical fantasy world in the vein of David Lynch, Neil Gaiman, and Cirque du Soleil. The movie is an innovative mixture of story-telling and music, an extraordinary tale of the power of imagination… and what’s ultimately important in life. Shot and post-produced in Canada, the movie was directed by Stobe Harju and produced by Solar Films, and features appearances by all Nightwish members. The screenplay is based on a wild vision that Tuomas Holopainen, the mastermind of the band, devised after the album Dark Passion Play came out in 2007.
The official soundtrack of the movie, “Imaginaerum by Nightwish – The Score” was released already. The album features 13 grandiose, unreleased re-interpretations of “Imaginaerum” tracks by Petri Alanko.
Nightwish have sold over seven million albums internationally and received over 60 Gold and Platinum awards, making them the most successful Finnish Rock band of all time.
