Beyoncé has dropped the trailer for her highly anticipated concert documentary about her Renaissance World Tour, which currently holds the title for her highest-grossing tour to date. During the final stop of her tour in Kansas City, Missouri, the singer unveiled the trailer to an excited crowd. The film, titled “Renaissance: A Film by Beyoncé”, is set to hit theaters on December 1 in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, with more global releases to be announced later.
The official description of the film states that it captures the journey of the Renaissance World Tour, starting from its inception in Stockholm, Sweden, to its grand finale in Kansas City, Missouri. Beyoncé’s involvement in every aspect of the production, along with her creative vision and determination to create her legacy and master her craft, are highlighted in the film.

Beyoncé also shared the trailer on her Instagram account with a caption that warned fans to be careful what they ask for. The tickets for the film went on sale on the same day as the trailer release.
This is not the first time Beyoncé has released a concert documentary. She previously collaborated with Netflix for the release of Homecoming, which documented her iconic 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival performance.
The Renaissance World Tour kicked off on May 10, 2022, in Stockholm, Sweden, shortly after she released her album. The tour has since traveled to major cities around the world, attracting millions of fans, including many celebrities such as Pedro Pascal, Issa Rae, Gabrielle Union, Kelly Rowland, and Tracee Ellis Ross. According to Billboard, the tour has grossed an impressive $461.3 million, making it the highest-grossing tour of all time in the Boxscore archives.
In addition to the concert film, it was recently announced that Taylor Swift will also be releasing a documentary about her Eras Tour, in collaboration with AMC. The Eras film is set to be released in more than 100 countries overseas, alongside its domestic launch on October 13. Early box office tracking data for the Eras Tour suggests a huge opening weekend of $75 million, with some analysts projecting numbers as high as $100 million or even $125 million.
