Pop some popcorn, and get ready to watch the best movie trailer in months, if not years. When the Carters do something, they don’t do it half-assed, that’s for sure (not including Jay’s later in life lackluster musical offerings).
Serving as promo for their summer tour and inspired from their “Part II (On the Run)” collaboration, RUN, directed by Melina Matsoukas, literally looks better than just about any movie preview I’ve seen in a long time. More importantly, it looks like it just might make those pricey stadium tickets worth it. Perhaps they’ll play an extended version of it for concertgoers, or at least have it playing during intermission for the shows.
Besides the Carters, RUN features Sean Penn, Don Cheadle, Jake Gyllenhaal, Blake Lively, Emmy Rossum, Rashida Jones, AND Kidada Jones*. Noticeably absent is a certain sibling of a certain star. But enough words, click, watch and enjoy.
* – Gotty made me emphasize those last two.
