The “Renaissance” film is finally happening!
Beyoncé just wrapped her Renaissance World Tour after 56 shows. But fans will still be able to watch the entertainment legend perform long after her final show in Kansas City, Missouri, on October 1.
Queen Bey is coming to a theater near you for Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé — a film documenting what is now the highest-grossing tour by a female artist in history. The project will hit U.S. theaters on December 1.
Beyoncé released the trailer for the film on October 1 — following the end of her final Renaissance World Tour show in Kansas City.
“When I am performing, I am nothing but free,” Beyoncé says in the trailer over a montage of images from the tour. “My goal for this tour was to create a place where everyone is free, and no one is judged.”
Pre-sales for tickets to the movie version of the concert are already available at a variety of theater chains, including AMC, Regal, and Cinemark.
“Be careful what you ask for, ’cause I just might comply. Tickets on sale now in theaters 12.01” from her song “All Up in Your Mind,” she captioned an Instagram post about the film.
Variety previously reported on September 30, that Beyoncé closed a deal to distribute the new concert film directly with AMC Theatres. And the singer revealed more chains in her formal announcement.
Sources told the outlet that an auction for the project was teased to the major studios and streamers in mid-September. Beyoncé ultimately chose a deal template forged by AMC and Taylor Swift in August. Swift’s film was self-financed, and she plans to see well over 50% of box office grosses in the arrangement, said reports. Variety‘s sources say that Beyoncé will get the same deal.
Bow down to the queen!
