NEW YORK, May 18 (UPI) -- Jay Z and Beyonce are a pair of gun-slinging outlaws in "RUN," a fake movie trailer used to promote the couple's upcoming 16-date "On the Run" tour, which starts June 25 in Miami.

The four-minute clip comes the weekend after Jay-Z-in-elevator-security-footage/8641399910384/" target="_blank">Jay Z's elevator fight with Solange Knowles rocked the entertainment world.

It features an impressive collection of celebrity pals, including Sean Penn, Blake Lively, Emily Rossum, Don Cheadle, sisters Rashida and Kidada Jones, Jake Gyllenhaal and Guillermo Diaz.

"RUN" echoes the video for Beyonce and Jay Z's 2003 collaboration, "03 Bonnie & Clyde," in which they play modern versions of the notorious criminal lovebirds.

Fans hoping to see a real "RUN" film shouldn't hold their breath. The mock trailer ends with: "Coming never."
