Beyoncé Readying Renaissance Concert Movie

Beyoncé shared an entire trailer Sunday evening for a forthcoming concert movie established on her blockbuster 2023 Renaissance World Tour.

The movie’s traditional title is “Renaissance: A Film by Beyonce,” and the vocalist has outspread ticket pre-sales at theatre chains including AMC, Regal and Cinemark. It will hit U.S. theaters on Dec. 1.

“When I am performing, I am nothing but free,” Beyoncé purrs in the trailer over a montage of images from the road. “My goal for this tour was to create a place where everyone is free, and no one is judged.”

The songster’s firm Parkwood Entertainment teased a late announcement for the final domestic stop on her tour, and Beyoncé took to IG to share the trailer shortly before 11 p.m. PT. Queen Bey captioned the content with the lyric, “Be careful what you ask for / ’cause I just might comply” from her song “All Up in Your Mind.”

Like many Beyoncé productions, this movie promises to be a family affair. Clips of Beyoncé rehearsing with eldest daughter and current backup dancer Blue Ivy Carter can be peeked in the trailer, as can she and her and Jay-Z’s twins, Rumi and Sir. Jay Z himself is also seen and is heard on voiceover questioning his missis about her intentions with this latest creative effort.

As Variety conveyed exclusively on Saturday, Beyoncé penned down a deal to distribute the new concert movie directly with exhibition giant AMC Theatres, and she disclosed more exhibition chains in her official announcement.

An auction for the hybrid project was teased to the major studios and streamers in mid-September, sources told Variety in an earlier report. Beyoncé chose an unconventional deal template forged by AMC and Taylor Swift in August. Swift’s film was self-financed and she will see well over 50% of box office grosses in the arrangement, reports said. Beyoncé will get the same deal, said Variety’s sources.

Insiders said the film will have an ambitious scope — incorporating highlights from the full 2023 run of the Renaissance World Tour, the long-awaited videos shot for the visual album “Renaissance” and a docu-style account of recording the album and conceiving the tour.

Aforesaid concert movies from Beyoncé contain the direct-to-DVD “I Am…Yours,” recorded live at Las Vegas’ Wynn Casino in 2009; the 2013 HBO project “Life Is But a Dream,” a confessional account of new motherhood mixed with live performances from her grand opening performance at Atlantic City’s Revel Casino; and Netflix’s “Homecoming,” the cultural sensation which dives into Beyoncé’s 2018 Coachella headlining set.
