Glee: The 3D Concert Movie is a Concert-Movie of Glee Live 2011 which was filmed at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, NJ on 16 June 2011. It was released August 12 in the US, with a special screening on the 10th.
The film also features Jane Lynch live on stage instead of pre-recorded material (Lynch's scenes have been deleted and were included on the home release), and Gwyneth Paltrow (in character as Holly Holliday) performing Forget You live. Source
The film was rated PG for "thematic elements, brief language, and some sensuality" by the MPAA.
Ryan Murphy will produce the show, and he explained that the film will help bring the live show to a wider audience. He said: "This tour was all about going out and performing for our amazing fans who have supported our show from the beginning, but due to the limited time, there were only so many cities we could get to. We'll be able to bring the concert experience in full three-dimensional glory."

The reception were mixed; on Rotten Tomatoes, it has a 61% rating from critics and 66% rating from fans (as of July 6, 2012); the consensus states "The unconverted will remain just as perplexed as ever, but for gleeful Gleeks, The 3D Concert Movie delivers exactly what it promises." Some are saying that it would've done better as a special that aired on thanksgiving weekend. Others saying that they're not a glee fan, but they see what all the fuss is about. Many critics also commented on the overuse of Darren Criss over many of the series regulars.
The fans also have mixed reviews. Though many loved it, many were disappointed that Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It) and Friday were left out. I'm a Slave 4 U and Lea Michele received amazing reviews, as did Don't Rain on My Parade.
