Only Beyonce and Jay Z could drop a video with no warning on a Saturday night and still bust the internet. But this is no ordinary visual. Directed by Melina Matsoukas, Run is a trailer for the best movie we’re never gonna see. It shows scenes from a Bonnie and Clyde-style love story — complete with cameos from A-list actors Sean PennJake Gyllenhaal, Don Cheadle, Blake Lively and many others.

While some people have labelled Run a video clip for the Carters’ R&B smash “Part II (On The Run)”, the mini-movie only contains snippets of the song. It’s more likely a promo for their similarly-titled tour, which kicks off in Miami, Florida on June 25. Bey and Jay have obviously spared no expense on that extravaganza, as this action-packed film proves. It’s worth watching for Queen Bey’s line-up scene alone but the segment where she’s literally swimming in money is also instantly iconic. Watch up top.
