BLACKPINK Announce ‘BLACKPINK The Movie’ Is Coming In August
The new film is set to arrive to coincide with the fifth anniversary of the K-Pop stars’ formation.
Superstar K-pop girl group BLACKPINK have announced that they’re coming out with ‘BLACKPINK The Movie’ just in time for the fifth anniversary of the group’s debut in August, which they plan to celebrate with a special “4+1 Project.”
“BLACKPINK THE MOVIE Coming Soon August 2021,” reads the caption underneath a teaser movie poster from YG Entertainment that features members Jennie, Lisa, Jisoo and Rosé’s names at the bottom.
Netflix premiered the BLACKPINK documentary Light Up the Sky in October, which highlighted their recording process, exclusive interviews and 2019 Coachella performance. The new movie poster also shines a spotlight on “The Show,” which is the name of the livestream concert they hosted in January.
The South Korean group formed by YG Entertainment in 2016 debuted Aug. 8 of that year with the Square One project, which featured their breakthrough hit “Whistle” and “Boombayah.” They went on to become the highest-charting female K-pop act on the Billboard Hot 100 when their 2020 “Ice Cream” collaboration with Selena Gomez debuted at No. 13.

Back in the beginning of June, BLACKPINK released their highly anticipated new live concert album, THE SHOW. BLACKPINK: THE SHOW features a 90-minute set from their KILL THIS LOVE tour date in Korea, where they were backed up by The Band Six. The set available for purchase includes one of four different KiT VIDEOS, one of four different key-ring charms, a photocard sleeve set, a tracklist card, and more.
The KiT VIDEO collection and DVD both costing $39.80, and the live CD coming in at $24.06. The live concert release comes on the heels of an exciting new era for BLACKPINK. Back in April, they officially surpassed 60 million subscribers on YouTube. The South Korean idols passed the milestone at 6am KST on April 13, according to their agency YG Entertainment, per Yonhap News Agency. BLACKPINK currently have the biggest YouTube account based in South Korea and are also the most-subscribed female artists on the video platform.
