A new minute-long trailer, soundtracked by a gospel choir, offers a glimpse into the Rodan Crater, artist James Turrell’s never-before-seen installation in Arizona’s Painted Desert where much of the Nick Knight-directed Jesus Is King was filmed. Additional photography for the documentary was shot on the rapper’s ranch outside Cody, Wyoming.
The teaser also quotes the Bible verse Mark 1:15, “In the words of Jesus Christ, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand, repent and believe in the gospel.’”
Jesus Is King “is a 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 company said of the documentary.
IMAX also opened up ticketing for the one-week-only limited engagement of Jesus Is King, which hits more than 325 IMAX theaters nationwide plus another 125+ internationally on October 25th.
