One Direction broke records on Tuesday morning's TODAY, drawing the biggest crowd the plaza has ever seen for a performance.
TODAY co-anchor Matt Lauer shared that fans had been camping out in the rain for up to five days outside the show's New York City studio.
Drawing many onlookers to tears during their performance of their love song Little Things, the boy band also took the opportunity to announce their latest venture: the big screen! Niall Horan revealed that 1D is doing their "first ever movie," set to be released on August 30, 2013, and "it's going to be in in 3D."
An official statement, released later Tuesday, revealed Super Size Me director Morgan Spurlock has signed on to helm the project. Simon Cowell, the boy's former X Factor mentor, will help produce the film.
The group also performed Live While You're Young and What Makes You Beautiful for the young crowd.
They are set to return to TODAY on Wednesday in a pre-taped segment.
