Jay Z & Beyoncé Drop 'RUN' Trailer With Jake Gyllenhaal, Blake Lively

So THAT'S why Jake Gylenhaal was sitting courtside with Beyoncé and Jay Z at the Barclays Center the other night! 

Mr. and Mrs. Carter announced that they're heading out on the road together for the summer—the aptly titled On The Run Tour—and they've dropped a trailer for fake flick RUN in the middle of the night to serve as a teaser for hijinks ahead.

Somehow Bey and Jay squeeze drugs, guns, strippers, neon, a zillion dollar bills floating in a swimming pool, Huck from Scandal, a super concerned-looking Blake Lively, cold-faced cops and plenty of bloodshed in just under four minutes. (We should be less surprised given their fondness for anything and everything having to do with "Bonnie & Clyde.") 

In addition to Gylenhaal, Lively and Guillermo Díaz (of Scandal and Weeds), RUN boasts cameos from Sean Penn, Don Cheadle, Rashida Jones and Emmy Rossum. The high-octane production is directed by Melina Matsoukas, frequent Beyoncé director/collaborator and the talent behind the music videos for "Why Don't You Love Me," "Diva," "Move Your Body" and more.

Leave it to the diva and the hustler to tap Oscar-winning talent for a mini-drama and run from the law looking #flawless.
