Kanye West’s ‘Jesus Is King’ Movie Blazes The Box Office

Published: Sunday 27th Oct 2019 by Sam

Kanye West unleashed his ninth album ‘Jesus Is King’ this week and did so in conjunction with a like-titled short film in IMAX theaters.

With the music defying the odds on the sales front, it looks as though the movie is also proving an early success too.

Full story below…

According to Deadline, Ye’s 35-minute short (which ran in 134 markets and landed in the top 10 on Friday for its limited run) generated an estimated $862,000 in the US and $1 million worldwide.

The Gospel flick, which centers on a special edition of West’s Sunday Service, it boasted sold-out shows in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, Chicago, and Dallas, as well as global cities including London, Copenhagen, Mexico City, Helsinki, Guadalajara, Melbourne, and Auckland.

Moving forward, ‘Jesus’ – which is directed by Nick Knight – will expand into 78 new markets on November 8th.

    So what if she borrow anything this clown does all artists take pieces from each other like every since Beyoncé first drop her album without promo and with video for each songs most of the artist today are doing the same and even doing movies behind them like Kanye is doing so nothing is new here and she’s not stealing if anything artists are raking from her. “Homecoming “ any one. Kanye is all about getting the bag any and every way possible to the point of selling “merchandise “

      Beyonce was not the first big artist to release an album without promo, or make a film to accompany her album or make music videos for each song on an album. It’s all been done before.

      Homecoming was a flop.
