The official trailer has been released for “Jesus is King,” a new IMAX feature that hails from musician Kanye West and is dubbed a fusion of “religious revival and hip-hop show”.
Directed by photographer Nick Knight and filmed this summer, the project is set in Roden Crater – artist James Turrell’s never-before-seen installation in Arizona’s Painted Desert.
Additional photography also took place at West’s ranch outside Cody, Wyoming. West has previewed the film throughout October during pop-up screenings.
The project features thirteen songs arranged by West in the gospel tradition and performed by the Sunday Service choir, as well as new music from his forthcoming album of the same name.
The film will run at IMAX outlets for one week starting October 25th then expand to additional markets on November 8th. Tickets are now on sale at JesusIsKing.IMAX.com
