AMC Entertainment said that a film based on the song “Renaissance World Tour” by American pop star Beyoncé will be distributed worldwide through a unit of AMC Entertainment, as cinema chains try to fill content gaps left by strikes in… Hollywood.
Beyonce’s film is a theatrical production of the singer-songwriter’s world tour this summer, which includes 57 concerts in 40 cities in North America and 14 in Europe.
The film follows a similar release by pop star Taylor Swift, whose Eras Tour will be distributed in theaters across North America on October 13.
Concert films provide cinema chains such as AMC, Cinemark and Cineplex with high-profile titles to fill the gaps left by the long strike of actors and writers in Hollywood.
“Renaissance: A Film By Beyonce” is scheduled to open in the United States, Canada and Mexico starting Friday, December 1, 2023, according to AMC, which will announce additional cities around the world at a later date.
AMC’s competitor Cinemark also announced that it will show the concert film in US theaters. Both movie theater chains said their standard U.S. movie tickets will start at $22.
Entertainment website Variety first published news of Beyoncé’s talks to release the song “Renaissance” on AMC.
