Usually there’s enough leftovers at the cinema that Hollywood doesn’t release movies the weekend after Thanksgiving, but that might start to change. The offerings last weekend were weak and audiences noticed. Now, Beyonc茅 is taking advantage of that by releasing her own concert film in theaters.

Beyonc茅 is taking a page out of Taylor Swift’s playbook and not releasing it through traditional means. She is distributing through AMC Theaters, which is the biggest theater chain in North America. If Beyonc茅 can repeat the success of Taylor Swift, then the way movies are released could change drastically.

In addition, it’s Queen Bee aka Beyonc茅! How are you not going to see this magnificent concert in theaters? Especially on IMAX.
