Kanye West's 'Yeezus' movie poster channels 'American Psycho'
Kanye West really likes American Psycho.
The rapper promoted his 2013 album Yeezus with an American Psycho spoof and now, the poster for his upcoming film — also titled Yeezus — is drawing from the blood-splattered motif of the 2000 film. There’s a reason though: American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis wrote the screenplay for Yeezus. And it all comes together!
Mazdack Rassi of Milk Studios posted a photo of the new poster on Instagram Thursday, but didn’t reveal anything about the film in the caption. Everyone involved has stayed mum on the project, so all we know at this point (thanks to the trailer) is that there will be horses galloping through snow, West dressed as Jesus, and lots of strobe lights. We smell Oscar!
Watch the trailer for Yeezus, which is being directed by Hype Williams, below:
