I would guess that it would be released, but it will probably be after the No Better Than This tour before we see it. I'm sure they want those coming to the shows to be watching the movie for the first time and not already own it on DVD. Releasing it now would be akin to releasing a movie on DVD while it's still in theaters.

It's unclear what the movies future is. It is still in the editing stage so until it's a done/final/John approved thing I don't think there will be firm plans for it.

 Thanks guys. I always enjoy watching any footage of the recording process , seeing John and the band in that more informal atmosphere and behind the scenes on tour would be great.

So this movie debuts in two months and it's still not complete? John said on the Tavis Smiley show that Tavis was in the movie, so I figured since this was shot last July and August that the final product had been complete for some time. I wonder what is taking so long.

It's essentially done, but the FINAL edit I do not believe has been approved. There is always round after round of refinement and subtle tweaking to the editing.

Very interesting. Thanks for the update. Do you have a rough estimate as to how long the movie is going to be?

I do not at this point. Around an hour I have heard but there have been edits and work going on all year (Markus by trade is not a filmmaker and this thing was shot old school). Edits and stuff like that are tedious.
