With Beyoncé’s latest concert film, Renaissance, set to be in theatres in December, the BeyHive is set to expand to include movie theatre seating and popcorn.
Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour is scheduled to open in theatres on October 13, demonstrating that stadium tours are becoming more and more popular.
High pre-sale grosses for both films have been demonstrated, and these noteworthy figures will undoubtedly encourage future performers to showcase their live performances on enormous screens.
The “Renaissance” global tour, which Beyoncé embarked on in May of this year, serves as the basis for the film.
Not only did Beyoncé’s incredible performance steal the show, but the choreography, scenery, and costume design—which included a now-iconic beaded dress by Alexander McQueen—were all highly praised.
Beyoncé had already released a concert film on Netflix with her 2019 release, Homecoming: A Film By Beyoncé.
With the huge success of the film, she was nominated for six Emmys and won a Grammy. Additionally, the artist has dabbled with visual albums, such as Lemonade (2016) and Black is King (released in 2020).
Beyoncé is a formidable performer who has also dabbled in acting, with roles in musical comedies like The Fighting Temptations, Obsessed, and the Oscar-winning Dreamgirls.
‘Renaissance’: Where Can You Watch It?
On December 1, Renaissance will make its theatrical debut.
The Bikeriders, directed by Jeff Nichols, Silent Night, an action-thriller starring John Woo, and Eileen, a drama starring Thomasin McKenzie and Anne Hathaway, are the films that the movie will debut against.
Pre-order tickets are currently available, with prices ranging from $22 to $28, depending on the location. To purchase tickets in advance on Fandango, click the link below.
Is ‘Renaissance’ Getting a Trailer?
“I feel liberated when I perform,” Beyoncé declares at the opening of the Renaissance trailer, which functions akin to a movie.
The singer’s personal life and stage presence are extensively explored in the teaser, which also showcases the audience’ intense emotions to the performance. Watch the spine-tingling teaser below:

Beyoncé and her daughter Blue Ivy Carter are the only two recognised performers of Renaissance as of right now.
Blue Ivy previously had a cameo in the 2020 Disney+ special Black Is King, marking her second appearance in one of her mother’s ventures. Based on The Lion King’s soundtrack, Beyoncé used the movie as a visual album.
What Exactly Is a “Renaissance”?

Renaissance travels with Beyoncé on her most ambitious concert tour to date.
It is reported that the two and a half hour video will feature both her on-stage performances and an intimate behind-the-scenes peek at the tour.
Due to Beyoncé’s well-known privacy, fans like seeing any glimpses into her personal life that the singer chooses to publicise.
“Renaissance”: Who Is Producing It?

Parkwood Entertainment, an entertainment firm Beyoncé started in 2010, is producing Renaissance. The singer started the business because she wanted to run her own management team, and it has expanded significantly since then.
Trafalgar Releasing and Variance Films, in collaboration with AMC Theaters—the same theatre chain that Taylor Swift chose to utilise for her own concert film—are handling distribution for it.
Additional Beyoncé Movies Available Now
This picture of Beyoncé as a gold member is sourced from New Line Cinema.
Dreamgirls: A Film (2006) When film was first released, Bill Condon’s musical drama was a hit and took home two Academy Awards: one for Best Sound Mixing and one for Best Supporting Actress, which went to Jennifer Hudson.
Beyoncé plays Deena Jones in the movie, one of the three singers (the other two are Anika Noni Rose as Lorrell Robinson and Jennifer Hudson as Effie White).
Curtis Taylor Jr. (Jamie Foxx) found the three formidable vocalists, who went on to become the 1960s soul group the Dreamettes. As their personal lives get in the way of their singing goals, things start to fall apart, and Effie discovers that Deena prefers her appearance over her voice.
The enormous score, some amazing dancing movements, and Hudson’s interpretation of “And I’m Telling You, I’m Not Going” were all highlights of the movie.
Eddie Murphy, Danny Glover, and even John Krasinski in a supporting role are all included in the movie.
Groovy, sweetie, here is Austin Powers In Gold Member (2002). Given the moniker Foxxy Cleopatra, it only seems sense to cast Beyoncé in a Bond Girl-style part.
In the 2002 movie, Mike Myers, who plays the adored Austin Powers, chronicles his journey back in time to 1975 in order to save his father who has been abducted.
With Myers portraying three different characters—Powers, the villainous Dr. Goldfinger, and Dr. Evil—the plot has all the timeless fun of an Austin Powers film.
Beyoncé portrays Power’s ex-girlfriend, who joins forces with him to battle the evil that confronts them. With an abundance of our favourite Austin Powers quotes, the movie was a smash when it came out and made $296 million worldwide.
Come for Steve Martin in The Pink Panther (2006), but stay for Beyoncé’s insanely amazing (and extremely difficult to get) song, “Woman Like Me.”
Beyoncé portrays Xania, a well-known pop singer, whose fiance is murdered shortly after popping the question with the notorious Pink Panther Diamond.
Steve Martin’s character Inspector Clousea arrives on the scene right away, accompanied by his far more capable sidekick, Ponton (Jean Reno).
Classic Martin physical humour pairs with hilarious sight gags, the greatest of which has Clousea and Ponton donning full body camouflage and spinning around while trying to get into a party where Xania is performing (perfectly timed to coincide with the legendary “Woman Like Me” performance). Because of the movie’s box office success, a sequel, The Pink Panther 2, was released in 2009.
