Justin Bieber to release ‘Believe’ movie on Christmas Day in US
Justin Bieber is giving his loyal Beliebers and extra special gift this Christmas by releasing his 3D flick ‘Believe’ on December 25!
The film is directed by Jon M. Chu and will feature not only interviews with the Biebs and his manager Scooter Braun, but also appearances by famous faces including Ludacris, Mike Posner, Rodney Jerkins and the original Belieber, Usher.
“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,” dished the ‘Heartbreaker’ singer in a statement, according to E! News.
“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 theatres everywhere.”
Justin’s manager, Braun, insists that this latest flick has given the star the opportunity to tell his story in an “authentic way.”
“It's no secret that Justin Bieber's name drives a lot of attention,” he shared.
“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.”
‘Believe’ is the follow-up to the 19-year-old’s 2011 big screen debut, ‘Never Say Never,’ which is said to have grossed $73 million in the US alone.
With ‘Believe’ having wrapped the majority of filming in January this year, it’s unlikely we’ll get to see any of Justin’s recent controversies including the mop bucket-peeing or the abandonment of his pet monkey, but the timing could be right for the movie to shed some light on his split from girlfriend Selena Gomez.
While the movie is locked in for release in the US on December 25, no date has been confirmed as yet for Australia or New Zealand.
