The first real The Jesus Rolls trailer is here, and it looks…strange. This Big Lebowski spin-off clearly has nothing to do with The Big Lebowski, even though both films feature a similar character: Jesus Quintana, played by John Turturro. While Jesus was a minor supporting player in the Coen Brothers cult classic, he takes center stage here, leading a film full of lowlifes and rag-tag crooks up to no good. Watch The Jesus Rolls trailer below.

John Turturro has long dreamed of making a spin-off from The Big Lebowski focused on his character, Jesus Quintana. While the Coen Brothers had no intention of ever making a follow-up film, they granted Turturro to use the character as he saw fit, and so he did. The result: The Jesus Rolls, a film Turturro directs and stars in. The movie has had a long road to release – Turturro started filming it back in 2016. Now, it’s destined to arrive next month. And there’s now a teaser offering the first real footage from the film. So how does it look? Well…uh…see for yourself…

Just how many characters is The Batman going to have? Answer: a lot. Matt Reeves is currently gathering his players together to bring a new take on the Caped Crusader to life, and the latest came sort of out of left-field: John Turturro will play mob boss Carmine Falcone. The fact that Falcone is in the film along with multiple villains gives weight to rumors that Reeves is looking to The Long Halloween for inspiration, as the Falcone crime family has a major part in that comic.

John Turturro’s Big Lebowski spin-off has been rolling around since 2016, which seems like a million years ago at this point. Originally titled Going Places, the film followed Turturro Big Lebowski character Jesus Quintana in a whole new story. Word died down about the film, and it appeared Going Places would never actually go anywhere. Now, there’s an update. The film has a new title – The Jesus Rolls, and a new release date – early 2020.

Hollywood has always had a problem with giving women leading roles once they start hitting their 40s and 50s. Obsessed with the fresh-faced, young women pouring into Los Angeles everyday, it’s one of the more shameful sides of show business. But thankfully that’s started to change a bit with great roles for women of all ages, and A24 has just released the first trailer that gives Julianne Moore one of those fantastic roles.
Gloria Bell (Julianne Moore) is a divorced woman just trying to meet the right man all over again, hitting up night clubs, dancing like no one is watching, and living her best life. That’s when she meets Arnold (John Turturro), and it looks like everything is coming up Gloria. At least at first. See what happens in the Gloria Bell trailer below. Read More »
Director Gillian Robespierre’s Obvious Child was such a pleasant surprise for a lot of people back in 2014 that news she was reuniting with star Jenny Slate for a new movie called Landline was greeted with cheers. Amazon Studios picked up the film and has debuted the first trailer for the dramedy, which is set in 1995 and focuses on a dysfunctional family with parents played by John Turturro and Edie Falco. But even with a cast made up of industry vets, it sounds like the film’s largely unknown youngest cast member may be the one who steals the movie.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Even though Joel & Ethan Coen were expressly against the idea of The Big Lebowski 2, they are totally cool with John Turturro creating a spin-off focusing on his character, the purple-clad, bowling-ball-licking Jesus Quintana. After all, Turturro had created the character before The Big Lebowski was even a movie, so why not?
The Big Lebowski spin-off is called Going Places, and it’s inspired by Bertrand Blier‘s 1974 French film Les valseuses. A set photo was posted when production began a couple months ago. Now the first official photo has surfaced online, and it features Jesus doing exactly what you’d expect him to be doing: bowling. Read More »
