The official trailer for Will Smith's new film King Richard has been unveiled, which features a preview of Beyoncé's new song "Be Alive".

Last month it was reported that Beyoncé had contributed a new song titled "Be Alive" to the King Richard film soundtrack.

Today (21 October) the official trailer has landed, and it features a preview of Beyoncé's new song.

King Richard charts the rise of tennis superstar sisters Venus and Serena Williams, and sees Will Smith play the role of their father Richard Williams.

In August Beyoncé did confirm that new music is on the way. She said, "With all the isolation and injustice over the past year, I think we are all ready to escape, travel, love, and laugh again. I feel a renaissance emerging, and I want to be part of nurturing that escape in any way possible. I’ve been in the studio for a year and a half. Sometimes it takes a year for me to personally search through thousands of sounds to find just the right kick or snare. One chorus can have up to 200 stacked harmonies. Still, there’s nothing like the amount of love, passion, and healing that I feel in the recording studio. After 31 years, it feels just as exciting as it did when I was nine years old. Yes, the music is coming!"

King Richard is due to arrive in UK cinemas on 19 November.
