Kanye film to premiere October 23

Rap megastar Kanye West’s film debut 'Runaway' will premiere this weekend on MTV.

The 40-minute film is to be shown simultaneously on MTV, BET and MTV2 at 8pm ET this Saturday, October 23. Fans will also be able to stream the film live on MTV.com, BET.com and VH1.com.

The film has been called a “visual accompaniment” to West’s forthcoming LP, ‘My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy’, which will be released on November 22. 

The outspoken rapper explained the premise behind the film last month: “It’s a story of a phoenix fallen to Earth, and I make her my girlfriend. People discriminate against her and eventually she has to burn herself alive and go back to her world.”
