Not long after being announced in New York, One Direction began to film the movie in Tokyo, Japan on January 17, 2013. Two days later, during the Team 1D Japan Party, they performed One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks), in front of a large audience, which was later revealed to be part of the film.

The official movie website[2] went up and included a fan mosaic, an interactive poster of the movie that contained thousands of photos submitted by fans of themselves. There was also a meme creator, exclusive photos, videos and much more on the website.

After the release of the trailer on their Vevo a few weeks later, the title was guessed to be "1D3D", although it wasn't until March 18, 2013 when the boys revealed the official title, "This Is Us", on their Twitter, with help of some fans.

A press conference was held in the morning of Monday 19 August, 2013, one day before the worldwide premiere of the movie in London's Lecister Square. There were oppurtunities for photos with the movie's director Morgan Spurlock and a press conference. Afterwards, there were chances for more casual interviews with Harry and Niall together and Zayn, Louis and Liam together.

There was a twitter Q&A session held on the official This Is Us twitter account with each of the boys using the hashtag #1DMovieChat the night before the London premiere, the 19th of August 2013. First Zayn, then Liam, then Niall, then Louis, then Harry and Morgan Spurlock, the director of the movie. The question would be retweeted then the answer was written by This Is Us twitter account an signed off with the boy's initials.The chat began at 7:15 PM and ended at 9 PM (BST).
