Kanye West Unveils Trailer for ‘Jesus is King’ IMAX Film


Kanye West has dropped the trailer for his upcoming IMAX film Jesus is King.

There’s still no word on a release date for the now-delayed album by the same name, but the film is moving forward.

The cryptic trailer was unveiled Thursday, and shows a light at the end of a keyhole tunnel as gospel music plays in the background.

The video then cuts to a Bible verse from Mark 1:15 that reads: “In the words of Jesus Christ, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand, repent and believe in the gospel.'”

The movie was shot in the summer of 2019, and brings the rapper’s famed “Sunday Service” to life in the Roden Crater — artist James Turrell’s never-before-seen installation in Arizona’s Painted Desert, according to IMAX.

The movie, from British filmmaker Nick Knight, will be shown exclusively in IMAX theaters. The IMAX website lists cities where it will be playing.

Jesus is King: A Kanye West Film is scheduled to open on Friday, October 25.

Although some fans are skeptical that the movie will be released, with one writing in the comments section on YouTube: “It’s very rare to see a trailer for something that’ll never come out.”

The movie coincides with last month’s planned debut of West’s new album, although the album still hasn’t surfaced.
