Open Road Films announced today that the highly-anticipated Justin Bieber movie Believe will hit theaters on Christmas Day. In addition, we have the first trailer and a clip from this concert film, that gives Justin Bieber fans behind-the-scenes access to the singer, along with his producers and mentor Usher Raymond, who discovered the Canadian pop sensation. Take a look at the footage, then read the full press release for more details.
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 (G.I. Joe Retaliation, Step Up 2 the Streets & Step Up 3D, 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.
Justin Bieber had this to say to his fans in a statement.
"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 M. 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."
Producer Scooter Braun also released his own statement.
"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."
Open Road Films CEO Tom Ortenberg also chimed in on the project with his statement.
"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."

"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."
