In four weeks, Justin Bieber’s 3-D flick, “Never Say Never,” will be in theaters. As fans gear up for the film event of 2011, Ryan Seacrest shared a never-before-released clip from the Bieber film, which opens on February 11 .
In the video, Bieber performs an acoustic version of “Baby.” The performance footage is combined with scenes of him greeting his fans, something manager Scooter Braun admits is the highlight of working with the teen superstar.
“Me and the guy from ‘Extreme Home Makeover’ have the best jobs in the world,” Braun explains in the new clip. “It’s actually the most gratifying thing about the job. Little things go a very long way. You get paid to just make other people happy.”
Braun admits that it really doesn’t take much to make a Bielieber happy, just some primo seats to a Bieber show. “You give them free tickets and they’re usually in the first 10 rows,” Braun further explains. “If it weren’t for those kids out there, we don’t have jobs.”
This is only the latest peek at the forthcoming film. A few weeks ago a clip of Bieber drumming as a kid was released. In it, his mom recalls his early days. “He never had any lessons or anything. I just never thought of it being anything other than for fun,” Bieber’s mother, Pattie Mallette, says.
The film’s director, Jon Chu, told MTV News that he was nervous showing Bieber cuts of the film because he worried that the singer wouldn’t be happy with the way he told his story.
“I mean, I’m always nervous. We’re always trying to make our movies better,” he explained. “We’re never done with it, though. I just keep going until they tell me I’ve run out of time. So [Justin] got to see it this week, which was really exciting, and he loved it, which is always scary when you try to show someone the story of their life, but he’s been very supportive, he and his family and his team. I’m excited to share it with the world and show another side of 3-D. With ‘Step Up 3D,’ we learned a lot of lessons and we discovered a lot of things, and it’s just the beginning.”
