Halsey’s If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power Film Experience will debut on Thursday, October 7, on HBO Max in the U.S. as a MAX ORIGINAL film. HBO Max has acquired the film after a limited theatrical run in IMAX theaters, which broke nearly $1M at the box office after selling out in 70+ theaters globally. Halsey and the filmmakers were represented by WME and Endeavor Content in the distribution deal.
After its short run in the IMAX theaters, it showed for a few days on Moment House via a livestream experience, where fans could re-watch the experience to the amount of their heart’s desire. Read our review of the film in full below:
Set to the music of Halsey’s fourth studio album, this one-of-a-kind film experience stars the two-time GRAMMY® nominee as the young and pregnant Queen Lila. After a shocking event, Lila unlocks a paranormal power within and discovers her ability to create life (and end it). Offering a stunning visual treat for fans, this evocative, horror-tinged fairytale explores the labyrinth of sexuality and birth. If I Can’t Have Love, I Want Power was written by Halsey and directed by Colin Tilley. The album was produced by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. The film was produced by Halsey, Jamee Ranta and Anthony Li.
