The film will be released with the '¡Tré!' album on August 26 after their Reading and Leeds performances
Green Day are set to release their documentary film, '¡Cuatro!', on August 26.
The film will come out as a CD/DVD, alongside the band's '¡Tré!' album - the final part of the punk band's recent '¡Uno!', '¡Dos!' and '¡Tre!' trilogy - which was first released at the start of the year.
The film received its world premiere at the Winter X Games back in January, and also screened at SXSW in Austin, Texas in March. The behind-the-scenes documentary, directed by Tim Lynch, looks at the process of making '¡Uno!', '¡Dos!' and '¡Tre!', as well as showing footage from the band's 2012 Stateside shows.
Of the film Mike Dirnt, the band's bassist, previously said: "¡Cuatro! brings our fans one step closer by giving them even more access and revealing what it was like for us to make these records."
Green Day played London's Emirates Stadium - the huge 60,000 capacity venue commonly used by Arsenal Football Club – earlier this summer, setting a new gig attendance record for the venue. The band took to the stage at the north London enormodome on June 1 to play a hit-packed set which also featured audience antics, bizarre costumes and Billie Joe Armstrong firing a huge toilet paper gun into the crowd.
The venue sold out all 60,000 tickets for the first time.

In HBO's The Newsroom, John Gallagher Jr. plays Jim Harper, the senior producer of the nightly cable news program anchored by Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniels). The show's second season, which began in July, takes place in 2012 during the presidential primaries. Ever since the start of the series, Gallagher's character has been in a will-they-or-won't-they relationship with one of the young producers of the news show.

Green Day have eleven albums under their belt, and they walk onstage each night prepared to play practically any track from that deep catalog. They also aren't afraid of arena rock bombast, embracing pyro, confetti cannons and classic rock covers like "Highway to Hell."
Showstopper: Billie Joe Armstrong brings a fan onstage every night to play guitar on "Longview." Even when they can't play a note it's still an absolute riot.
