John Turturro's THE BIG LEBOWSKI Spinoff Film JESUS ROLLS Gets a Foreign Language Trailer
The first trailer has been released for John Turturro’s long-awaited Big Lebowski spinoff film Jesus Rolls, and it looks great! Unfortunately for me, it’s in a foreign language, and I can’t understand what’s being said. But it’s not hard to follow what is going on in the story.
The film centers around Turturro’s character, Jesus Quintana. It’s been explained that Jesus Rolls is part Big Lebowski spinoff, part remake of Bertrand Blier’s 1974 film Going Places, which was the original title for the film.
The story follows “a trio of misfits whose irreverent, sexually charged dynamic evolves into a surprising love story as their spontaneous and flippant attitude towards the past or future backfires time and again, even as they inadvertently perform good deeds. When they make enemies with a gun-toting hairdresser, their journey becomes one of constant escape from the law, from society and from the hairdresser, all while the bonds of their outsider family strengthen.”
The movie also stars Bobby Cannavale, Christopher Walken, Audrey Tautou, Jon Hamm, Susan Sarandon, and Pete Davidson. When previously talking about the film, the actor said:
“It’s a bit of a racy movie. It shows how stupid men are. That’s what the movie is kinda about – the women are the stronger, more together characters. I had to tweak it a little bit but now I feel really good about it. It’s basically an exploration of Jesus getting out of jail. It’s a comedy but a very human comedy.”
It’s been almost 20 years since we’ve seen this character, and it’s going to be interesting to see what he’s up to. Screen Media will release the film in early 2020.
