BELIEVE movie press release:
Open Road Films, along with SB Films and Dolphin Films, will release the highly-anticipated film, BELIEVE, nationwide on Christmas Day 2013.
On each Monday prior to BELIEVE’s release, Justin will celebrate Music Mondays by dropping a brand new song exclusively through iTunes. Music Mondays are Justin’s way of further giving back to his worldwide fan base. Last week, he unveiled the smash “HeartBreaker,” which immediately shot to #1 on iTunes in over 69 countries. He’s followed suit this week, with the instant hit “All That Matters” which shot to #1 in 58 countries. Beliebers should look for new songs each and every Monday until December 16th.
Directed by Jon M. Chu (GI Joe: Retaliation, Step Up 2 & 3, Justin Bieber Never Say Never), BELIEVE features brand new interviews with Bieber and appearances from manager Scooter Braun, Usher Raymond, Rodney Jerkins, Ludacris, Mike Posner and many more. BELIEVE is produced by Justin Bieber, Scooter Braun, Usher Raymond and Bill O’Dowd. Garrett Grant is also a producer.
What the Team had to say about the BELIEVE MOVIE:
I am so excited to be involved in this movie, and so happy to be able to give back to my fans, especially during the holiday season. Jon Chu and my team have done a wonderful job creating a special moment for Beliebers worldwide and I can’t wait till Christmas day when the movie will be in theaters everywhere.
It’s no secret that Justin Bieber’s name drives a lot of attention. But with BELIEVE, we wanted him to tell his own story, truthfully and directly. The number one goal of our company is to provide global audiences with content that’s not only high-quality and forward-thinking, but also authentic.
Tom Ortenberg, CEO of Open Road Films:
Justin Bieber is one of the biggest stars on the planet and one of the greatest entertainers of our time. BELIEVE will be a huge Christmas present for Bieber fans and Open Road Films couldn’t be happier about delivering this special engagement to theaters.”
Bill O’Dowd, Dolphin Films CEO:
It was an amazing experience to see the creative process behind both the writing of Justin’s songs and the mounting of the BELIEVE tour. The BELIEVE concert is simply spectacular, and it is made even more so when you witness the tremendous amount of effort and heart that Justin, Scooter and their team bring to their work and, most importantly, to his fans.
