In 1991, ROLLING STONES AT THE MAX broke new ground, bringing pure entertainment and great music to Big Movies like never before.

Now, with the number of Big Movie theaters located at commercial multiplexes almost equal to the number located at institutional venues like museums or aquaria, three new films are set to follow in the footsteps of the Stones' early foray onto the giant screen.

The first, ALL ACCESS: Front Row, Backstage, LIVE!, features live performances and intimate moments with Santana and Rob Thomas (of Matchbox 20, who collaborated with him on the Grammy-winning "Smooth"), B.B. King, Trey Anastasio (of Phish) and the Roots, Sting, Moby, Sheryl Crow, George Clinton, Mary J. Blige, Kid Rock and Macy Gray. The Santana shoot in particular was said to be incredible: it occurred in Los Angeles the day after he won 8 Grammys.

The second film, 'N Sync: BIGGER THAN LIVE, is slated to debut in January of next year. Fans will be able to get up close and personal with teen heartthrobs Justin, JC, Lance, Chris and Joey, meeting them backstage as well as watching them sing and dance several stories tall, from incredible seats!

The third film, highlighting several big-name country music stars, is titled Music Country. Though this film isn't as far along in production as the other two, the Dixie Chicks have already been filmed. Others slated to appear include Lyle Lovett,Loretta Lynn, Dolly Parton, Earl Scruggs, and Dwight Yoakam.

Will this be the start of a new, long-term trend for Big Movies? Or a short-lived fluke? Or maybe, simply the blossoming of a new, legitimate genre that will take its place as one of the medium's mainstays?

Who knows.

But for all those who've missed their favorite musicians in concert lately, or want to meet them backstage -- or for those who simply can't get enough of these big-name stars, next year promises to be an exciting one for Big Movies!
