Watch the Trailer for Ed Sheeran's Wembley Concert Movie
Is there a better place to make a concert film in the U.K. (heck, perhaps the world) than Wembley Stadium? If the trailer for Ed Sheeran's new movie is any indication, possibly not, because these shots are looking fiiine.
Yesterday, Sheeran dropped the trailer to Jumpers for Goalposts, his concert film that follows his X Tour as it makes its way to the 80,000-capacity Wembley for three sold-out shows in July 2015. "My dream last year was to play Wembley," the redheaded singer-songwriter says in the clip. "Now it’s come to it and reality’s hit, and now you’re like, ’I have to play to 240,000 people.'" Beginning his career by playing pubs, his "dreams didn't really stretch that far" to think he'd even headline a stadium at all.
Meanwhile, Elton John drops by for fist bumps of encouragement (he appeared during the three-night jaunt's final evening) and dozens of young fans are seen stampeding toward the front of the stage once the gates are opened.
And when the trailer shows Sheeran singing "Thinking Out Loud" in front of thousands of lighters, you realize just why they made this the perfect place to film. Jumpers for Goalposts will air October 23-25 in select theaters.
