Just like a Beyonce album, the highly-anticipated A24 horror-comedy film starring Chance the Rapper just dropped on all digital platforms!
This comes after it had a one-night-only theatrical premiere Monday. Zazie Beetz and Joe Kerry are among the co-stars.
The film was shot in secret during the summer of 2016. It is Chance (real name Chancellor Bennett)’s feature film debut.
Austin Vesely, who’s directed many of Chance’s videos, is the director. Vesely revealed in a July 2015 interview with Red Eye Chicago that the film is a “murder mystery” that will see Chance play a werewolf named Dax Lycander, a former Chinese food delivery driver who finds himself at the center of an investigation into a series of murders. The story will also take place in an alternate universe that “has these supernatural elements that people accept as reality.” Vesely also told Pigeons and Planes in 2016 that Twin Peaks inspired it.
It will take place in a “supernatural alternate reality” where ghosts and werewolves are commonplace, but the overall tone will be a surreal comedy.
Here’s the official description that we have now: In a spooky small town, when a slew of pizza delivery boys are slain on the job, two daring survivors (Atlanta’s Zazie Beetz and Chance the Rapper in a wild film debut) set out to catch the culprits behind the cryptic crime spree.
Watch the film now (for purchase) on iTunes, Amazon and all other digital platforms.
