The 'Best Song Ever' five-piece's first movie will be played for Obama's daughters Sasha and Malia.

US President Barack Obama has reportedly secured an early copy of One Direction's new 3D concert movie This Is Us for his daughters.

The President is said to have credited an advance copy of the film from Sony for daughters 15 year-old Malia and 13 year-old Sasha, who will get to watch the film over one week before the rest of the world.

This Is Us 3D is set to receive its world premiere this week in London (20th August) before hitting cinemas later this month, and Barack's two daughters are said to be huge fans of Harry, Liam, Louis, Zayn and Niall.

"[Barack] and Michelle are still hoping to get them to the White House one day soon," one of the President's aides said, reports the Daily Star. "That would be the ultimate treat for their daughters.

This past week 'Best Song Ever' singer Liam Payne hit out at the recent Channel 4 documentary Crazy About One Direction after taking offence to how the programme portrayed the band's fan base.
