Shut Up and Play the Hits,” about dance-punk band LCD Soundsystem, which will get a one-night only premiere release in 50 cinemas across the U.K. and Ireland on Tuesday. The screening will include red carpet coverage and a post-film Q&A with LCD Soundsystem front-man James Murphy, transmitted live via satellite from London to all 50 venues. Pulse has also teamed with Google+ Hangout to host a fan hangout for the Q&A, with fans around the world able to login in to view the Q&A and interact with other members of LCD Soundsystem in real time. Pulse launched in 2005 with the goal of establishing a fluid approach to production across film, music, television and advertising. Pulse Films recently co-produced music documentary “Katy Perry: Part of Me,” which has grossed $32.5 million at the global box office to date through Paramount. Pulse titles include “Who Is Dayani Cristal?,” starring Gael Garcia Bernal. A full slate of Pulse releases will be announced in the fall.
