Is there anything that the Beyonce & Jayz Knowles-Carter clan cannot do? This two-man team has repeatedly shown us why they are the reigning King & Queen of the entertainment industry and they are proving it to us yet again with a three part short film.
Earlier in the year, to announce their On The Run tour, Beyonce and JayZ released a star studded fake movie trailer – we loved their last film trailer “Run” starring Sean Penn, Don Cheadle, Guillermo Díaz, Emmy Rossum, Jake Gyllenhaal, Blake Lively, Rashida Jones. It seems there is more to that story as Beyonce and Jay Z star as two outlaws in the short film Bang Bang – Part One!
Filmmaker and photographer Dikayl Rimmasch shot three short films starring Mr and Mrs Carter’s alter egos, who appeared in their On the Run tour. Look out for the two other films soon!
“Two American outlaws speed through the Californian desert in a dusty 1960s Pontiac GTO with a manifest poise and stylish swagger that could only be embodied by the world’s foremost musical couple: Beyoncé and Jay Z” the video is captioned.
“In my first conversation on the telephone with Jay Z he explained his concept of On the Run. He said: ‘We’re not trying to do this literally, it’s not that we’re Bonnie and Clyde. We’re on the run from everything. On the run from becoming a cliché. On the run from doing the same thing again,’” Dikayl said. “Everything he mentioned was a level of consciousness he has for staying alive as an entertainer and as a human being. He wanted to keep it more abstract because for him it was very abstract. How do you stay new, not just to your audience but also yourself?”
