- Travis Scott told PIN-UP about the album, “Utopia is something that people feel is so far-fetched and out of reach, some perfect state of mind. But you create it yourself. There are people who achieve utopia every day. They may not be the richest people with the dopest cribs, but it's a utopia wherever they are, and that's the most you can have. With every album I live in these worlds in my mind - I'm trying to show people experiences where utopian things can exist, and you can enjoy yourself and have a good time. They can create energy that spews out magical things — new cures, new buildings, new avenues for people to move forward. People need to see that utopia is real.”
Travis Scott unveiled a new film “CIRCUS MAXIMUS”, which is based on the album, in select AMC Theatres on July 27, 2023.
The film was written and directed by Travis Scott with additional directors Gaspar Noe, Valdimar Jóhannsson, Nicolas Winding Refn, Harmony Korine, and Kahlil Joseph.
The film is a surreal and psychedelic journey, uniting a collective of visionary filmmakers from around the world in a kaleidoscopic exploration of human experience and the power of soundscapes.
