The biggest power couple in music, Beyoncé and Jay-Z (duh!) have revealed an action packed film trailer to promote their upcoming joint tour titled “On the Run”. The star studded spectacle is almost 4 minutes long and features shots of a gun-wielding Sasha Fierce, strip-clubs (of course) and the dynamic duo robbing a bank. Take a look below:
With obvious influences of the Bonnie and Clyde story, the trailer looks like it could potentially be a big-budget Hollywood movie, one I would definitely see, especially since it stars the likes of: Sean Penn (Mystic River), Blake Lively (Gossip Girl), Guillermo Diaz (Scandal), Emmy Rossum (Shameless US), Jake Gyllenhaal (Donnie Darko) and more.
Flashes of explosions are mixed with shady conversations in the dark as it becomes apparent that Queen B has gotten herself into a heap of trouble, all for the name of love (she describes to Serena van der Woodsen). While Jay Z does everything he can to make himself look like a bad-boy; counting his money, smoking cigars and riding a motorbike, you can’t blame him really after the whole “my wife’s sister beat me up” fiasco. Anyway, there’s car chases, gunshots and well, more gunshots.
While it’s certainly a good – and expensive – way to promote a tour, could this “movie” possibly verge on being called vain? Who am I to judge, but one thing’s for sure, Solange is probably pissed she wasn’t in the project. Heads will roll.
