Korean pop band BTS is on track to set another big-screen record with their latest concert film, "BTS World Tour Love Yourself in Seoul," which will have the widest event cinema release in history.

17 Jan 2019 - 1:05 PM  UPDATED 17 Jan 2019 - 1:05 PM

The film will hit 3,800 cinemas across 95 countries as part of a one-day global release on Saturday, Jan. 26 including Australia. 

The last BTS film to hit theatres, "Burn the Stage," notched an admissions record with 2 million globally. After an encore release, it also achieved the highest-ever box office gross for an event cinema film, ousting One Direction from the top spot.

The new film shows the seven-member K-pop band in action last August at the Olympic Stadium in the South Korean capital as part of their latest tour. 

Pathe Live said the film would be screened in ScreenX-equipped theaters in 15 countries. The Korean-developed immersive technology uses projections on the side walls of the auditorium to create a 270-degree viewing experience, and was recently installed at multiple Cineworld sites.
