Chance the Rapper on Friday released the official trailer for his upcoming concert film “Magnificent Coloring World.” Also announced is the Aug. 13 release date at select AMC theater locations, including Chicago venues.

“Seeing movies together on the big screen is an essential part of summertime and something I deeply missed over the last year, so I am extremely excited and honored to partner with AMC to safely bring fans back to the theater,” Chance The Rapper said in May when the film enjoyed an advance screening in Chicago.
The movie was filmed in 2017 following the singer’s history-making Grammy win for best rap album for “Coloring Book,” the first time the honor went to a streamed-only album. Chance picked up three Grammys in all for his work featured on the album, including best new artist and best rap performance for “No Problem” with 2 Chainz and Lil Wayne.
