Kanye West has a trailer of his short film Runaway for you. It’s “the story of a phoenix fallen to Earth, and I make her my girlfriend.”

And “people discriminate against her and eventually she has to burn herself alive and go back to her world.” To be released, it’s 40-minute “noir” album-based film in production and West has been busy shooting and threatening baby deer.

West’s past Spike Jonze-directed short was arty and neat and actually appeared to show some humility and introspection on the superstar’s behalf. But everyone freaked out about how “weird” it was, but the Gay Fish got all insecure and tried to take it off the internet. Boo. So, knowing how much dough is being funneled into the project, let’s hope it’s something more than explosions and fowl couture. Looks fancy.
