Beyoncé Debuts Star-Studded Renaissance Concert Film Premiere
The singer dodged the chrome carpet, but unveiled a special new look inside the theater.
Queen Bey is ready for the world to experience the “Renaissance World Tour” on screen. Beyoncé held her star-studded premiere for her concert film, Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé, at the Goldwyn Theater in Los Angeles on Nov. 27.
The highly-anticipated event was filled with Hollywood A-listers, including a wide range of actresses, singers, and filmmakers to join in unveiling the project. According to Variety, Lizzo, Janelle Monae, and Issa Rae joined the chrome carpet, in addition to Gabrielle Union, Tyler Perry, and Ava DuVernay. In a special shoutout to Beyoncé’s former girl group Destiny’s Child, past members such as Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams worked the carpet, with Letoya Luckett and LaTavia Roberson also in attendance.
As for the star herself, Beyoncé chose to forego the silver display to meet her guests inside the screening but did share pictures debuting a platinum blonde hairstyle with her chrome attire, all befitting the “cozy opulence” dress code. The exclusive event had invited attendees unaware of its true location until a day prior, in typical fashion for the notoriously private and elusive singer.
The premiere is the first of two world debuts of the already historic film, with another premiere set for Nov. 30 in London. Beyoncé’s exclusive streaming deal with AMC theaters was solidified during the multiple strikes impacting the entertainment industry, as the groundbreaking deal has Beyoncé bypassing studios to work directly with AMC, ensuring she also gets a significant portion of the box office sales. The film’s pre-sale numbers are jumping its revenue for the first weekend, as Deadline reported on Oct. 3 that between $6-$7 million in pre-sold tickets have already been bought.
The final trailer for the movie was released by NBC on Nov. 23 during the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, giving more glimpses into its content for her massive fanbase. Keeping in line with her “Homecoming” film released to Netflix in 2019, “Renaissance” will share deeper insight into the process of creating the world tour, including how Beyoncé’s first daughter, Blue Ivy, came to join her mother on stage.
Fans have to wait until Dec. 1, the film’s official release date, to experience “Renaissance: A Film By Beyoncé.
