Today, we receive the first part of Beyonce and Jay Z's long-teased short film Bang Bang, directed by Dikayl Rimmasch, which has been shown in part during their On the Run Tour. The opening scene does more to set the mood than establish an explicit plot: shot in black-and-white, Beyonce performs in an elegant dress as Jay Z puffs on a large cigar, before they drive out on a long desert road and eventually stop at a diner in true Bonnie & Clyde fashion. “We’re not trying to do this literally," Jay Z explained to Rimmasch in his interview with NOWNESS. "It’s not that we’re Bonnie and Clyde. We’re on the run from everything. On the run from becoming a cliché." The On The Run tour documentary premieres on HBO September 20th.
