Katy Perry: Part Of Me is an upcoming film that revolves around the rise to fame of gospel singer Katheryn Hudson or more widely known as Katy Perry. In this 3D documentary-concert film, Katy Perry’s journey to becoming a global superstar will be seen by her fans and movie goers on the silver screen. Katy Perry: Part Of Me is going to be released in the United States, UK and Ireland on July 5, 2012. It will also feature Katy’s childhood, the struggles she had to go through in her life and her last world tour at Staples Center, Los Angeles on November 23rd 2012. Let’s take a look at what to expect in this upcoming film “Katy Perry: Part Of Me”
“Katy Perry: Part Of Me – A 3D Documentary Film That Is One Sure Show-Stopper
Katy Perry’s “Part of Me” is a gamble: that pop fans will follow her from the arena to the movie theater. But the film, following in the recent success of Michael Jackson’s “This Is It” andJustin Bieber’s “Never Say Never,” should have no trouble drawing her Katy Cats to the multiplex.
“Part of Me” is a concert movie, a tour documentary and “Behind the Music”-style biography all at once, a balance it strikes perfectly. Its narrative is clear: in 2011, Perry sets out on the biggest tour of her life as her sophomore album, “Teenage Dream,” ascends the charts and scores a record-setting five No. 1 singles. To casual observers, Perry’s rise might seem like an overnight success, a myth the film is intent on squashing. “Part of Me” peels back the fairy tale, showcasing Perry’s religious upbringing, her years of label struggles and finally, her divorce from comedian Russell Brand, alongside powerhouse performances from her “California Dreams” stadium tour and gushing footage of her adoring fans.
Though the movie skimps on parts of her history — her stint on the Warped Tour and a tabloid-chronicled 2008 break-up from longtime boyfriend Travis McCoy of Gym Class Heroes are notably absent — fans will be pleased to see an intimate portrait of her rise to fame that’s full of vintage footage and charming behind-the-scenes moments. The vintage material is especially revelatory: an 18-year-old Perry offers the film’s boldest confessionals, and rare music videos of her Alanis Morissette-influenced pre-fame songs are a surprising treat.”
The 2011 tour is the visual highlight: the performances are eye-popping, making full use of the film’s 3D to showcase Perry’s rainbow-colored dancers and elaborate stage. The show-stoppers include her first hit, “I Kissed a Girl” — reimagined here as a slow jam that builds into a hard rock anthem — and the film-closing “California Gurls,” which explodes the screen into floating layers of confetti. There’s also a payoff involving a candy-cane weapon that will please theater nerds familiar with Chekov’s Gun.
While “Part of Me” reveals a number of personal moments, the most endearing are the silly ones — Katy giving her unimpressed grandmother a tour jacket (Grandma nearly steals the movie), or jumping in shock when she feels a pregnant fan’s baby kick.”
