Forbes" Travis Bean, who attended one of West's viewing parties for the film, said that while the trailer is decidedly cryptic, it is "very reflective of the "Jesus is King' film'".
As ET reported earlier this month, West and his wife, Kim Kardashian West, led fans to believe that an all-new album was coming on September 27, when he held his Jesus Is King: A Kanye West Experience event at the Fox Theatre in Detroit, Michigan.
Jesus is King was directed by Nick Knight and filmed over the summer at an art installation by James Turrell called Roden Crater in the Painted Desert of Arizona. This one-of-a-kind experience features 13 songs arranged by West in the gospel tradition and performed by the Sunday Service choir - as well as all-new music from his forthcoming album of the same name - presented in the immersive sound and stunning clarity of IMAX.
The trailer features a gospel rendition of West's "Say You Will" and features new lyrics.
Now instead of just announcing a release date of the album that we've waiting for, Kanye has released an IMAX trailer for a film titled Jesus is King to go with the album that never arrived. Film rollouts are seemingly a little more hard to cancel than album ones, so there's a decent chance that Jesus Is King will be hitting IMAX screens next week, though whether it will come with a new album is up in the air.
