Beyonce’s concert film is to be distributed globally by AMC. A film based on the blockbuster “Renaissance World Tour” by American pop artist Beyonce will be released internationally by a unit of AMC Entertainment (AMC.N), the firm said, as cinema chains attempt to address content shortages caused by Hollywood strikes. The film will be based on Beyonce’s “Renaissance World Tour.”
The film Beyonce is releasing is a stage adaptation of the singer-songwriter’s world tour, which will take place this summer and include 57 shows in a total of 40 locations in North America and 14 cities in Europe.
The movie arrives on the heels of a release of a similar nature by pop singer Taylor Swift, whose concert video for her Eras Tour will begin distribution in theaters across North America on October 13.
Cinema companies such as AMC, Cinemark, and Cineplex need high-profile titles to help cover gaps produced by a lengthy strike by actors and writers in Hollywood. The concert films supply these businesses with high-profile titles.
AMC has announced that “Renaissance: A Film By Beyonce” will begin its theatrical run in the United States, Canada, and Mexico on Friday, December 1, 2023. The cable television network also stated that other worldwide locations will be revealed later.
Cinemark (CNK.N), AMC’s chief competitor in the United States, has also announced that it will show the concert film in its cinemas. Both movie theater companies have announced that the price of their normal showtime tickets in the United States would begin at $22.
Beyonce’s discussions with AMC on the premiere of “Renaissance” were initially reported by the entertainment website Variety.
