John Turturro’s long in
post-production the making spin-off to the iconic The Big Lebowski, formerly known as Going Places, is finally seeing the light of day. The first trailer for The Jesus Rolls is at last set to arrive soon, having been rated by the UK’s BBFC. It should, however, be noted that this follows the film’s theatrical release in Italy, where it has already gotten a trailer last September…with an Italian dub. Watch below and we’ll have the English-language version as soon as it arrives.
Fresh out of prison, smooth-talking petty thief Jesus Quintana is ready to roll with his best friend Petey riding shotgun. But first they need some wheels. A vintage muscle car parked in front of an upscale salon catches Jesus’s eye and the pair embark on a no-holds-barred joyride — until the car’s indignant owner (Jon Hamm) catches up with them, wounding Petey. Fleeing the scene with fiercely free spirited hairdresser Marie in tow, Jesus and Petey continue their road trip in a series of stolen cars, cementing their partnership with an epic petty crime spree and a three-way romance. Along the way, they visit Jesus’s prostitute mother, hide out in a posh beach house, go bowling, and hunker down in a cabin in the woods.
Starring John Turturro, Bobby Cannavale, Audrey Tautou, Susan Sarandon, Pete Davidson and Jon Hamm, the film is released March 20 in the UK, with a US date to be announced.
