As previously reported, the inimitable Beyoncé is directing and starring in an upcoming documentary about herself for HBO — more like “HBeyo,” amirite? That surely unbiased, journalistically sound film comes to us February 16, and in case you’re wondering what this “intimate” full-length masterpiece is going to look, sound and feel like, there’s now a whopping 25-second trailer for it.
The takeaway impression is a bit more “thriller” than “biopic,” and things get a bit horrifying when she’s smiling like a murderess around the 10-second mark. Also seen: baby bumps, hair flips, childhood frolic, paparazzi freakouts, and a warm and fuzzy moment with husband Jay-Z. Okay, so maybe a lot can happen in 25 seconds. Oh, and the movie is called — what else — Beyoncé.
What’s more, producer The-Dream, who co-wrote five songs on Bey’s last album 4, has told Billboard that “there will probably be a couple records you hear before the Super Bowl gets here.” Hey says he’s “involved in every part of the process” for her next long-player, and that “now she’s in a place where she’s ready to start gearing up to reveal her plan.” She plays the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show on February 3.
