Kanye Announces Release Date For Coming Film

Published

on

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!

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.

“I first met Dre in December of 2003. He asked me to produce a track for The Game,” West said. “At first I was star-struck, but within 30 minutes I was begging him to mix my next album. He’s the definition of a true talent: Dre feels like God placed him here to make music, and no matter what forces are aligned against him, he always ends up on the mountaintop.”

 

This announcement was followed by Kaye also announcing the launch of his first  Biblical opera production, “Nebuchadnezzar” which is directed by Vanessa Beecroft, an Italian British performance artist who has worked on and off with West since 2008. The two artists previously teamed up on his “808s & Heartbreak” album experience at Ace Gallery in Los Angeles, “Runaway” music video and the Yeezus tour, among other projects.
