Kanye Announces Release Date For Coming Film

Both Fandango and AMC have listed the Jesus is King film on their sites, claiming West will release his movie on the expected date of Oct. 25th:

“IMAX is releasing the all new Kanye West film, JESUS IS KING, exclusively in IMAX theatres. Filmed in the summer of 2019, JESUS IS KING brings Kanye West’s famed Sunday Service to life in the Roden Crater, visionary artist James Turrell’s never-before-seen installation in Arizona’s Painted Desert. This one-of-a-kind experience features songs arranged by West in the gospel tradition along with new music from his forthcoming album JESUS IS KING — all presented in the immersive sound and stunning clarity of The IMAX Experience.”

Although tickets are not for sale yet, you can sign up for alerts on Fandango. There’s also no official word yet on where the film will play. Selected guests have already viewed a screening of the film. What can we expect to see? Forbes writer Travis Bean shared more details about the film:

“It has been noted that the film feels largely inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. Directed by Nick Knight, the film feels more like a cinematic expression of West’s reconnection with God than a story that would present that journey an A-B-C structure. The images certainly tell a story about West’s life and spiritual reawakening—but in a very untraditional way.”

 

Kanye’s album release is also still up in the air. It was scheduled to release on September 27th, but seems to still be on hold. Universal Music Group claimed West’s album would come out in November—two months after a tweet from West’s wife Kim Kardashian West claimed it would be released. If this is true, it would mean that everything is actually right on time so far. However, fans have created the idea that the album will release once the album hits theaters. It’s not a surprise that this level of mystery is surrounding Kanye’s coming releases. Whether it’s all apart of the plan or otherwise, time will tell. Either way, fans are waiting with high anticipation!

We Celebrate Chadwick Boseman For Sharing His Gift of Story-Telling At Its Finest

Yesterday we all received the surprising news that Chadwick Boseman passed away at only 43 years old. He left behind his wife who he secretly married in 2019. She was his long time love as they dated for nearly 6 years prior to their wedding last year. She was by his side from the time of his diagnosis throughout his battle with cancer. Chadwick passed with her and his family by his side. Our prayers are with his wife, his family and friends. Today we are remembering Chadwick Boseman and celebrating him for his work.

Like most pursuing anything in the entertainment world, Chadwick’s career didn’t begin overnight. His film work spans from 2003 – 2020. Like many, he pressed through a line of rejection and obstacles to get where he was in his career. But, he couldn’t do it alone. This Howard University alumni credits Denzel Washington who later paid for Chadwick to attend Oxford to study acting for being a major help in his career.

CHADWICK CREDITS DENZEL WASHINGTON FOR PUSHING HIS CAREER FORWARD

In 2019, Boseman spoke at the American Film Institute dinner where he was able to honor Denzel Washington with a lifetime achievement award. He shared the story of receiving Denzel’s help for school during his speech and thanked him saying, “There is no Black Panther without Denzel Washington.”

In an interview with Rolling Stone Magazine Chadwick shared more of that story. Apparently, while attending Howard, his teacher Phylicia Rashad originally encouraged Chadwick to attend Oxford in the UK during a summer program. While he and friends were accepted to the program, they couldn’t afford to go. “That’s when Rashad, who played Clair Huxtable on The Cosby Show, stepped in and ‘essentially got some celebrity friends to pay for us to go,” says Chadwick.

Chadwick went on to portray some of the biggest Black ICONs our world has seen and in the process showed us “story-telling” at its finest! Those roles include Jackie Robinson, James Brown, Thurgood Marshall and the Black Panther where he made history in the world of Marvel super heroes bringing world wide inspiration and a new image of a Black superhero for the world to see.

During a new segment of the show, Zozibini gave a closing speech where she spoke of wanting to empower young women to feel confident.

“I grew up in a world where a woman who looks like me — with my kind of skin and my kind of hair — was never considered to be beautiful,” she said in her last response. “I think it is time that that stops today. I want children to look at me and see my face and I want them to see their faces reflected in mine.”

Her speech received strong applause from the audience.

 


The two runners-up for the crown were Miss Mexico and Miss Puerto Rico. For the first time in history, African/American women are holding the top winning spots in the pageant world.
