Chance The Rapper Shares The Release Date And Trailer For His ‘Magnificent Coloring World’ Concert FilmChance The Rapper Shares The Release Date And Trailer For His ‘Magnificent Coloring World’ Concert Film

In 2017, Chance The Rapper held a secret show for some of the biggest fans in his hometown, Chicago. The footage forms the basis for a new concert film, Magnificent Coloring World. Chance recently shared the trailer for the film on social media, simultaneously announcing its August 13 release date at select AMC Theatres. Pre-sale begins next Friday, July 16. The film’s premiere is set for August 13 in LA, with a follow-up event planned for New York the next day. According to a press release, it’s the first time an artist has independently distributed a film through AMC Theatres.

The concert, which Chance played and filmed in the spring of 2017, featured a custom stage and sound design created specifically for the movie (which Chance teased a few times throughout the year) and is directed by Jake Shreier, who previously shot the romantic comedy-drama Paper Towns.

Chance, who laid low for much of 2020, popping out a few times to support some of his closest friends including Justin Bieber on “Holy” and Vic Mensa on “Shelter,” is gearing up to return to the spotlight this year with a headlining slot at Summerfest 2021 and the new single, “The Heart & The Tongue,” which promised a return to the stripped-down sounds of his early work.
