By Annie Reuter

The Weeknd is ready to take over the big screen. Days before the November 25 release of his new album Starboy, the Weeknd has revealed that a short film called Mania is also on the way.

A teaser for the Mania was released, but the 18-second clip provides little insight into the project. Directed by Grant Singer, the teaser conjures an air of mystery with several questionable characters, a possible villain and a shot of a panther. The backdrop looks to be set in a club, while the closing clip has a car driving off into the sunset. This isn’t the first time the The Weekend has teamed with Singer. The director is also responsible for “Starboy,” “Can’t Feel My Face,” “Tell Your Friends” and “The Hills” videos.

While no release date has been revealed, fans can get a preview of the short film in the clip below.
