With a little more than a month away before Jay Z and Beyonce kick off their On the Run tour, the Carters re-introduce their ’03 Bonnie & Clyde’ personas in a trailer for their fictional movie, ‘Run.’ The flick is inspired by their collaborative tune ‘Part II (On the Run),’ which appears on Queen Bey’s self-titled album.
The action-packed preview is full of crime, violence, betrayal and love as Jay and Bey play a couple on the run from the law.
The three-minute clip, directed by famed videographer Melina Matsoukas, features Hov as a suave criminal looking to do one big score with his partner-in-crime Beyonce. In one scene, Jay confides with a fellow gangster (played by Sean Penn) who warns him that his dangerous game could get him and his lover killed.
Meanwhile, Beyonce’s gal pal is warning her to stay away from Jay because he’s bad news. “But I love him,” says the R&B diva.
There’s plenty of dark and glamorous images throughout the trailer, including Beyonce floating in a pool surrounded by hundred dollar bills.
The visual also boasts an all-star list of cameos from actors Don Cheadle, Guillermo Diaz, Emmy Rossum, Jake Gyllenhaal, Blake Lively, Rashida Jones and Kidada Jones.
While the trailer is exciting to watch don’t expect the movie to be release. At the end, it says, “Coming Never.”
Nevertheless, we have a hunch that a movie of some kind will be played during Jay Z and Beyonce’s On the Run stadium tour. The summer trek rolls out June 25 in Miami and ends Aug. 5 in San Francisco.
