October 5, 2021 – Paramount+, the streaming service of ViacomCBS, today released the official trailer for their new documentary film, MADAME X. Filmed in Lisbon, Portugal, the film captures the rare and ravishing performance of the tour of the pop icon, hailed by sold-out audiences around the world. The unprecedented intimate streaming experience will take viewers on a journey as fascinating and daring as Madonna’s fearless character Madame X, a secret agent traveling the world, changing identities, fighting for freedom and bringing light in dark places.

Madonna’s virtuoso performance in MADAME X celebrates the seven-time Grammy Award-winning fourteenth studio album of the same name, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, and captures new music alongside previous hits and fan favorites for an unparalleled theatrical journey. The linguistically diverse album, inspired by her life immersed in the rich cultural influences of Lisbon, is a love letter to multiculturalism and a testament to Madonna’s transformative influence and reverence on global culture and has earned praise from the New York Times as “reinventing[d] pop spectacle for a theater stage, fusing its new music and appeals to political awareness with gripping intimacy.”

The world premiere of MADAME X, starring Madonna, will debut exclusively on Paramount+ in the United States, Latin America, Australia, the Nordics and Canada starting Friday, October 8. Fans outside of those markets can watch the documentary on MTV. From MTV Entertainment Studios, MADAME X is directed by Ricardo Gomes and SKNX.
