As most of [artist id=”3187077″]Justin Bieber[/artist]’s die-hard fans already know, the movie event of February is quickly approaching. Bieber’s first full-length feature film, “Never Say Never,” hits theaters in about three weeks, on February 11, just in time for Valentine’s Day weekend. MTV News has been keeping up with the Biebs since he announced plans for the big-screen project back in August.
On Monday (January 24), Paramount Pictures released a new poster for the film, which shows the 16-year-old standing tall in the middle of a street, seemingly stuck between two worlds — on the left side is his hometown of Stratford in Ontario, Canada, which is shown in black-and-white, with a sign in the background that reads “Population: 32,000”; on the right side, Bieber is standing next to the crowded New York City skyline, which is depicted in full color. The “Baby” singer is shown dressed in all black, including a black jacket that zips up off-center, black jeans and black, unlaced high-tops. The tagline reads: “Find out what’s possible if you never give up.”
It’s a nice change from the first poster, which just showed Bieber’s profile and that famous, perfectly side-swept hair, partially hidden by a hoodie. It’s interesting that the “big city” shown in the new poster is New York City, however, rather than Atlanta, where Bieber moved when he was just starting out after signing with manager Scooter Braun and linking up with ATL superstar Usher.
Also worth noting are two new clips and partial trailers from the movie, called “Every Stage” and “Underdog,” respectively. Both clips show a few adorable home videos of Bieber learning to play the drums around age 3, followed by shots of what his life is like now, including screaming fans, huge sold-out concerts, his friendship with Usher, etc.
