Katy Perry's Divorce, Christian Upbringing Addressed in 'Part of Me' Trailer (Video)
Paramount has released the official trailer for their forthcoming 3D concert doc, Katy Perry: Part of Me, revealing more than just bubblegum pop and colorful confection.
The film follows pop superstar Katy Perry on her California Dreams tour, which ran from February 2011 to January 2012, documenting her personal and professional development along the way. The trailer begins by listing Perry’s many musical accomplishments, including a sold out world tour and notching five No. 1 singles off one album, and quickly addresses her high profile divorce from comedian Russell Brand. Also mentioned is her church choir past and being dropped by her first label, all interspersed with clips of her bright, colorful, high-energy show.
“My goal when I’m playing shows is just to make people smile,” Perry tells the camera.
The film is set for a July 5 release.
"I am so excited to paint the silver screen in 3D color with help from our friends at Paramount and Imagine," Perry said in a statement. "For the last year and a half, I have intimately documented my life both on and off the stage of the California Dreams Tour. I want to take you behind the cotton-candy clouds and reveal the highs and lows, nuts and bolts of this extraordinary ride. I promise you, after seeing this film, you will truly know me."
Paramount was the studio behind Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, which became the most successful music documentary in domestic box office history, grossing $73 million. The pic was released via the studio's Insurage label, headed by Amy Powell.
Paramount Film Group president Adam Goodman said the Perry project was a natural fit: "We're beyond excited to offer her fans, who inspired this movie, and moviegoers everywhere this once-in-a-lifetime look into her world and capture a moment in time."
