Justin Bieber steps back into the documentary spotlight for the fourth time with “Justin Bieber: Our World,” out Oct. 8 on Prime Video. The film follows Bieber in the weeks leading up to his record-breaking New Year’s Eve 2020 concert at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. In addition to the concert itself, “Our World” takes fans behind the scenes of Bieber’s rehearsal process and personal life.
As promised, the trailer opens with an intimate look into the superstar’s private world. Bieber’s 2015 hit “Where Are Ü Now” plays as he films himself waking up and getting ready on the day of the big event.
“I just wanted to create a night that was gonna bring people together and people could just let go and enjoy themselves,” the 27-year-old singer explains.
The stakes are heightened not just by COVID-19, but by the fact that Bieber’s performance marks the end of a three-year break from performing a full concert. Luckily, Bieber’s friends, family and wife, model Hailey Baldwin Bieber are there for support – not to mention the millions of fans who tune in to watch the livestream.
The Canadian singer, who shot to fame with songs like “Baby” and “One Less Lonely Girl” is no rookie when it comes to the documentary genre. Concert doc “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” similarly captured the lead-up to his sold-out 2011 Madison Square Garden Concert. “Justin Bieber’s Believe” explored his meteoric rise to fame at age 13, when Scooter Braun and Usher discovered him on YouTube. In 2020, documentary series “Justin Bieber: Season” took a more in-depth approach to the artist’s struggles, including mental illness and drug use, and his return to music.
Since his last full concert, the popstar has kept busy with his latest album “Justice”, EP “Freedom” and a string of singles, including Grammy-nominated “Yummy,” “Lonely” with Benny Blanco and 2020’s quarantine favorite “Stuck with U” featuring Ariana Grande.
As for other onscreen appearances, he played a fictional version of himself in collaborator Lil Dicky’s “Dave” and will lend his voice to Apple TV+’s upcoming animation “Cupid.”
