If your favorite part of the new “Karate Kid” was Justin Bieber’s ballad “Never Say Never,” then the title of his upcoming 3-D flick is going to leave you singing… Cause it’s the same thing! After sending fans on a two-day internet scavenger hunt, piecing parts of the one-sheet together, Justin revealed the full movie poster at midnight via USA Today.
Justin looks pensive and philosophical in a profile shot, wearing his classic letterman jacket (this time with a few rhinestones) and his hair casually swept to the side. A tagline instructs fans to, “B a part of it.” Somehow, we don’t think an invitation is necessary.
When MTV News caught up with director Jon Chu over the summer, he clarified that the film is not just for excited Justin fans, but holds cultural significance as well. “It’s a really fascinating story, and it has a lot to do with our sort of digital lifestyle now,” he said. “He was able to do what corporations try to do now when they use YouTube, and they don’t even know what to do with it yet. It’s a pretty cool story for our time.”
But don’t worry fans—this isn’t some sort of “Social Network”-type study of YouTube. “Never Say Never” is about Justin through and through. “[It’s] a movie for his fans, a movie for people who don’t know him, and we’re gonna tell the underdog story of where he came from,” Jon said.
What do you think of the name picked for Justin’s movie? Do you plan to see it when it hits theaters?
