WATCH: Full trailer lands for The Big Lebowski spin-off, The Jesus Rolls

February 6th, 2020 by Marc Comments

The full UK trailer has hit for The Jesus Rolls, the spin-off from The Big Lebowski starring (and directed by) John Turturro as the one and only Jesus Quintana.

The trailer certainly looks like a lot of fun – although I’m hearing disappointing early word, so we’ll see.

Either way, I’m excited and hope for the best.

Scene-stealing ten-pin legend Jesus Quintana returns to the screen as acclaimed actor John Turturro reprises the role for a boundary breaking sex, crime and comedy caper! Fresh out of prison, smooth-talking petty thief Jesus Quintana (John Turturro, The Big Lebowski, O Brother, Where Art Thou?) is ready to roll with his best friend Petey (Bobby Cannavale) riding shotgun. Picking up free-spirited hairdresser Marie (Audrey Tautou) along the way, the three embark on an epic petty crime spree across the rural backroads of New York.

Taking in the idyllic landscapes from the window of a stolen muscle car, the trio spend their days occupied with free love and the pursuit of happiness, and doing whatever it takes to get it… Writer, director and star John Turturro brings together an all-star cast including Bobby Cannavale (The Irishman, Boardwalk Empire), Audrey Tautou (Amelie), Susan Sarandon (Thelma and Louise), Christopher Walken (True Romance), Pete Davidson (Saturday Night Live) and Jon Hamm (Mad Men).

The Jesus Rolls is based upon Bertrand Blier’s controversial sex comedy Going Places (1974).

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
