Halftime revolves around the 2020 Super Bowl Halftime show, which saw Lopez headline along with fellow Latin pop icon Shakira.

The film will also reminisce on the 52-year-old's "multifaceted career and the pressure of life in the spotlight".

“My whole life I've been battling to be heard, to be seen, to be taken seriously..." Lopez says in the trailer, during rehearsals for the performance. "I’m trying to give you something with substance, not just us shaking our asses. I want something real.”

The film will also feature new footage of her performing at the inauguration of US President Joe Biden, where she memorably sang This Land Is Your Land and America, the Beautiful.

It also offers an in-depth look at Lopez's 2019 film Hustlers.

At one point in the trailer, she is seen in tears after missing out on an Oscar nomination for her role in the hit movie - something that widely regarded as the biggest snubs of the year.

The star was later nominated for the Best Supporting Actress at the Golden Globes, but lost to Laura Dern, who won for her role in Marriage Story,

Lopez's partner Ben Affleck also features in the trailer, addressing the backlash around his fiancé, saying: "I said to her once, “doesn’t this bother you?” And she said, “I expected this.”

In addition, the documentary will see Lopez reflect on her entire career, and why she got into music and acting in the first place.

“I do this, not for an award — I do this to connect with people and make them feel things, because I want to feel something,” she says.

Halftime arrives on Netflix on 14 June.
