Whereas rapper Travis Scott stars in Harmony Korine‘s newest movie Aggro Dr1ft (introduced in the present day as a part of the Venice 2023 lineup), in the present day Scott broadcasts one other collaboration with Korine (and a handful of different filmmakers): Circus Maximus, the 75-minute visible accompaniment to his forthcoming album Utopia. Scott and Korine direct alongside Gaspar Noé, Nicolas Winding Refn, Lamb director Valdimar Jóhannsson and celebrated music video helmer Kahlil Joseph.
A quick official synopsis reads:
Put together to enter Circus Maximus as Travis Scott takes his viewers on a mind-bending visible odyssey throughout the globe, woven collectively by the speaker rattling sounds of his extremely anticipated upcoming album Utopia. The movie is a surreal and psychedelic journey, uniting a collective of visionary filmmakers from all over the world in a kaleidoscopic exploration of human expertise and the facility of soundscapes.
Circus Maximus releases in theaters on Thursday by way of A24, the day earlier than Scott’s album formally drops. Watch the quick trailer above.
