Had enough of the Carters yet? Yeah, we didn't think so.
We’d totally pay to see Beyonce and Jay Z’s new action flick. Music’s first couple just released the trailer for Run this past Saturday – with no prior warning or promotion, in classic Mr. and Mrs. Carter style. The trailer is a star-packed event, featuring the likes of Jake Gyllenhaal, Don Cheadle, Blake Lively, Emmy Rossum, Sean Penn, Guillermo Diaz and Rashida and Kidada Jones.
Bey and Jay are pros at keeping everyone talking. This time, it's about their creative endeavors.
The trailer continues the couple’s favorite Bonnie and Clyde theme and sees them shooting guns, evading the law and generally looking really cool. But no action flick would be complete without a couple of emotional moments, so the short clip also features numerous heart-to-hearts with the aforementioned co-stars.
Watch the trailer below.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like we’ll get to see Run anytime soon – or ever, in fact. The trailer ends with Bey’s line “Who wants that perfect love story anyway?” from Jay Z’s Part II and then the words COMING NEVER flash across the screen. They almost had us going with this one. The “trailer”, directed by Melina Matsoukas, doesn’t even appear to be promoting anything – like, say, the couple’s joint summer tour. It looks like a pet creative project for the couple – you know, just another reminder that they’re cooler than us all.
The trailer features Jay an Bey's Bonnie And Clyde-inspired alter egos.
