Entertainment mogul Kanye West has released an enigmatic trailer for his upcoming film “Jesus Is King,” which will accompany his highly anticipated forthcoming album of the same title.
The trailer for the film, set to debut in select IMAX theaters on Oct. 25, features a reference to the New Testament verse Mark 1:15, which reads, “In the words of Jesus Christ, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the Kingdom of God is at hand, repent and believe in the Gospel.’”

Forbes writer Travis Bean described the trailer as a “cryptic teaser” and predicted West’s new album will drop once the movie leaves theaters.
“As someone who attended one of West’s live listening parties for the new album, I can say that while this trailer is cryptic, it is also very reflective of the ‘Jesus is King’ film,” Bean wrote. “After West played the album for everyone at a Chicago event — at the time, in late September, just the second listening party he had held — he continued to play his entire 37-minute film.”
“The entire three-or-so minute opening is the shot you see in the trailer,” he continued. “I won’t give away what happens next, but it’s pretty amazing.”
