The first trailer for Beyonce's new documentary has been revealed - scroll down to watch the clip.

In the trailer, Beyonce is heard saying: "I always battle with 'How much do I reveal about myself?' If I'm scared, be scared. Allow it. Release it." A tagline which reads: "Raw. Real. Revealed." is then shown between clips of Beyonce, her husband Jay-Z and live concert footage.

The self-directed documentary is said to include unreleased and behind-the-scenes footage of Beyonce, as well as live performance footage. Some of the footage has been shot by Beyonce on her own laptop, reports The Boom Box. It will stream exclusively via HBO on February 16, 2013.

Speaking about the film, Michael Lombardo, president of HBO programming, said: "Everybody knows Beyonce's music, but few know Beyonce the person. Along with electrifying footage of Beyonce onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman."

The film will come after Beyonce appears as the main attraction at next year's Super Bowl halftime show on February 3, 2013. She will appear at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans during the prestigious American football game, and it is thought that she will bring on special guests during the high profile slot, including Jay-Z and fellow members of her former band, Destiny's Child.

Beyonce has reportedly begun working on the follow-up to 2011's '4'. The singer was spotted in a New York studio with Jay-Z's producer Hit-Boy and Kanye West recording tracks for the LP, which will be her fifth studio album.
