|Live release by Rammstein|
|Released:||19 May 2017|
|Format:||CD / DVD / Blu-ray|
- For the film the concerts on 6 March 2012 and 7 March 2012 were filmed entirely. The scenes were cut with scenes recorded during rehearsals for the tour. Every show was filmed with 30 cameras in front of 17,000 people each night in Paris.
- At first the film was supposed to be shown on 24 November 26 and 30 of 2016. But after that info leaked and some cinemas hung up adverts too early, the release was postponed to 23 March 24 and 29 of 2017.
- Before its theatrical release the film was shown three times: Cannes Film Festival (11 May 2016), Cinemaxx cinema Cologne (11 August 2016) and at the Avant Première Film Festival Berlin (14 February 2017).
- On its first day of release the movie made more money in the cinemas than "Beauty and the beast" on its first day.
The first open screening of the film was on 11 May 2016 at the Cannes Film Festival. Another open screening was on 11 August in a Cinedome cinema in Cologne, Germany. A few days later an official advert was photographed inside the cinema which says, that the movie will be in cinemas on 24, 26 and 30 November.
On 19 January 2017, a website (www.rammstein-paris.com) went online, through which fans were able to buy tickets for the cinema presentation of the movie.
Also, a newsletter was sent out in which the director Jonas Åkerlund is quoted:
"We shot two nights in Paris, and we had 30 cameras, so that gives you 60 angles, plus we shot a dress rehearsal for close-ups. That gives you a massive amount of footage. This is a whole Rammstein-show, and I take the footage and cut it with the same precision that I would a 3-4 minute music video. Even with a big crew of editors, it took us over a year to nail down the edit. Looking at it now – that is the strength of this project. It really brings the show alive and shows what Rammstein is all about. I am very happy with RAMMSTEIN: PARIS. What this film shows wasn’t just relevant four years ago – it will always be relevant. Rammstein is a timeless work of art. And even if it might sound a bit pretentious, I’d like to say that I don’t think that this level of precision will ever again be attained in a concert film. The film is unique."
The movie had its official world premiere on 16 March 2017 at the Volksbühne in Berlin. All members of the band were present, as well as Jonas Åkerlund. Photos of the night are available here and a video can be seen here.
The video for "Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen?" was premiered via Facebook live-stream at 00:01 on 24 March 2017. The video is available here.

The “Made in Germany 1995–2011” tour that Rammstein went on in 2011 was a monumental undertaking. With 78 concerts in Europe and 21 in North America November baggage included a 24-meter-wide steel stage that was 15 meters high, 100 loudspeakers, a 380,000-watt sound system, 25 trucks and 125 crew members.
If you make a film about a tour like this, there’s no such thing as thinking too big. That’s also the main reason why “RAMMSTEIN: PARIS” is only coming to cinemas and Blu-ray players a good four years after the Paris concerts it was filmed at in March 2012. Director Jonas Åkerlund did everything he could to portray the band’s performance as accurately as possible when he made the film.
With 22 songs from the band’s whole repertoire, the resulting film isn’t just the most spectacular concert film to date about the band that is currently the most successful German rock band – it’s a masterpiece of music cinema! A total tapestry of ever-changing images awaits the viewer.
Åkerlund is notorious for his radical, pioneering videos, which are ablaze with all kinds of unique, idiosyncratic details, shifting perspectives, shocking contrasts, and moments that leave the viewer dizzy with delight – in “RAMMSTEIN: PARIS” he celebrates this from the very first minute. Rammstein performs 22 songs (128 min.) in the film, ranging from “Wollt ihr das Bett in Flammen sehen?,” which is the first song from their very first record, to “Frühling in Paris” from their latest studio album, Liebe ist für alle da.
