“We’re here to save souls”: Kanye West releases trailer for “Jesus is King” film

‘We’re here to spread the gospel” are the first words in the trailer released by Kanye West Saturday for his film “Jesus is King.”

“I’m an evangelist. So my music, my films, every conversation, every room I go in, we’re here to save souls — save people from eternal damnation,” he continues.

“I use art to make believers.”

The trailer ends with West reading Mark 1:15: “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.”

According to the Hollywood Reporter, “Jesus is King” will feature West’s ongoing Sunday Service series that takes place in Roden Crater, an Arizona-based art installation by light and space artist James Turrell. The film will feature 13 gospel songs arranged by West and performed by his Sunday Service choir, as well as new music from his upcoming album of the same title.

Imax is collaborating with Kanye West on the concert film, which will be released exclusively in Imax theaters around the world on October 25.
