Fans of singer Katy Perry will get an early screening of her documentary, "Part of Me," out July 5 nationwide, three days in advance of its debut, via Twitter.
Paramount's Insurge Pictures announced Thursday that it will host 100 sneak preview screenings of "Katy Perry: Part of Me" across North America on July 2, and the 3D feature will play exclusively on RealD systems during the sneak peek, said The Hollywood Reporter.
Those interested in taking part must follow Perry's Twitter, with over 22 million followers, and both her account and Paramount will set up a special hashtag that will direct fans straight to a website to purchase tickets to the advance screening of the film.
"From Katy's first Tweet announcing the movie, her fans have been incredibly passionate and supportive and we want to make sure they are among the first to see the film they helped shape," Insurge Pictures president Amy Powell said in a press release issued by Paramount.
"Part of Me" takes a deeper look inside Perry's life, outside the glitz and glamor featured in her concerts, music videos, and public appearances, and more of the person born Kathryn Hudson, before taking on the stage name Katy Perry.
Perry sat down for an in-depth chat with The Hollywood Reporter for their cover issue, and among the topics discussed in her life and during the film, the singer admitted that her personal life, related to her divorce with British comedian Russell Brand, left her in tears in the middle of a concert.
"There were times when what was going on in my personal life was so overwhelming that I had to bend over to let those tears fall straight out of my eyes and not my false lashes just as I'm about to go up on that ramp and sing 'Teenage Dream'," Perry told The Hollywood Reporter. "Nobody knows what really happened except the two people who are in it."
