Kanye West’s new album, Jesus Is King, was supposed to drop this past weekend, and when it didn’t fans have been wondering why that was. We’re now learning though that the musician is planning on releasing an IMAX film of the same name to coincide with the album’s launch. Perhaps West has decided to release both on the same day. If that’s the case, fans will now have to wait until October 25th, when the film is set to be launched.
Jesus Is King was filmed over the summer, with the intention of bringing West’s famous Sunday Service to fans across the globe. It was filmed in the Roden Crater, which is a never-before-seen art installation in Arizona’s Painted Desert created by artist James Turrell. The film will feature songs from both the new album, as well as the songs in the gospel tradition.
Over the weekend screened a sneak peek of the film at the listening parties he was hosting for his new album. On Friday that was at Detroit’s Fox Theatre and on Sunday it was held at the Auditorium Theatre of Chicago’s Roosevelt University.
While no official word has been given as to when the new album will be released, you need to remember, West is a showman, and it wouldn’t be at all surprising if he waiting to release both the Imax film and the new album at the same time. Which means fans will have just under a month to wait.
Zoe Kravitz Set To Star As Catwoman in The Batman
One of the stars of Big Little Lies, Zoe Kravitz, has signed on to play Catwoman in the upcoming The Batman film alongside Robert Pattinson. At this point it’s not known if she will play the main antagonist, or if she will be the love interest of Batman. In the comics, and the films, Catwoman has played both roles.
Rumour has it that over the last few weeks the role has come down to Joker’s Zazie Beetz, Eiza Gonzalez of Baby Driver, Oscar winner Alicia Vikander and Kravitz. Kravitz managed to snag the roll, even though there is a little concern with her scheduling since she is due to start filming the next installment of Fantastic Beasts soon.
Filming for The Batman is expected to start sometime soon, either this fall or early in 2020, so the movie will be ready for it’s June 25, 2021 release date.
As much as fans are excited for the new Batman film, Aquaman star Jason Mamoa is even more so. He is of course the stepfather of Kravitz, and shortly after the news broke he took to social media to let everyone know how proud he is of her.
“I’m so proud of u zozo bear. On and off screen OHANA,” he wrote on Instagram. “DC WB ohana Lola and Wolfies big sister is CAT WOMAN. Unbelievable so freaking stoked. Your going to have so much fun Aloha P bear.”
Kravitz responded to the post, saying “LOVE YOU PAPABEAR! love that aquaman and catwomen spend the holidays together from now on.”
Unfortunately odds of a crossover between the two characters is slim. Even though they are both DC comics properties, The Batman film is said to be separate the most current DC Films.
Drew Barrymore To Host A Daytime Talk Show
Back in August Drew Barrymore shot a pilot for a daytime television talk show, but none of the major networks were biting to pick it up. That all changed yesterday though when CBS Television Distribution made it official, they would air and produce Barrymore’s show starting in Fall 2020.
In a released statement Barrymore said “It is beyond my wildest dreams to have this opportunity for a daily talk show. I’m truly thrilled and honored to be creating this show with CBS.”
Barrymore of course was introduced at a very young age when she was one of the stars of E.T., and since then she has gone on to star in such films as The Wedding Singer, 50 First Dates, Never Been Kissed, Ever After and more. She also has some television credits to her name as well, including the Netflix series Santa Clarita Diet, Family Guy, and The World’s Best talent competition on which she served as a judge.
Steve LoCascio, chief operating and financial officer of CBS Global Distribution Group, said in a statement that “Drew is a huge star and a breath of fresh air — her show will energize any station’s lineup.”
At this point very little else is known about the new show, including what format it will take, but it was announced that Barrymore will also be an executive-producer for it.
