Son of God trailer: Jesus dies at the end

What is it with this Jesus guy and fish? Why does he hate fish? I mean, first he lures a bunch of them to their deaths, and then he feeds their corpses to a riled-up mob. Weird. Won’t someone think of the fish?

I like, however, that Jesus is clearly a Ghostbusters fan, because when someone asks if he’s the son of God, he says yes.

    I love that he says “I am coming soon,” and immediately afterwards the screen shows “FEBRUARY 28!”

    So, another tall, pretty white man with flowing locks. If they’re gonna make him look like a rock star, then at least they should make him sing like one.

    A major spoiler in the title? Thanks. Don’t tell me they bring the character back because that would be just lazy writing.

    C’mon, you know no one ever really dies in these fantasy stories.

    Jesus is the original Awesome Undead Boyfriend, so he has to be gorgeous. Like Edward Cullen. Jesus doesn’t sparkle, but he does have a halo.

    Re that “son of God” quote:
    Either that trailer maker is doing some creative editing or someone on this movie’s production staff wasn’t paying attention in Sunday school.

    I’d rather see Kevin Smith’s version of a Christ movie.

    Start at 2:55.

    Indeed, Tonio, they changed it from the book. But maybe there are people who are hard of reading who’ll find the film a handy entry point into the fandom, as with The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films; all the differences between versions there don’t seem to have caused any holy wars.

    I think he sparkled in Revelation of John…of course, LOTS of stuff sparkled there. Quite a few of us think John had made a meal of some special mushrooms.

    I wish I had taken a picture of it…but, many years ago the Grace & Hope mission house on 3rd Avenue right next door to the Variety Photoplays Theater (in the days when the Variety showed a lot of porn) had a sign that said “Jesus Comes Quickly!”.

    That’s not very Awesome Undead Boyfriend of him…

  • Bluejay

    Jesus doesn’t sparkle

    Well, he glows, though. Kinda like a regeneration, or the return of Gandalf the White. They should play it up to get all the Doctor Who and LOTR geeks to see the film.

    Also, I can’t wait to see the zombies.

    Y’know, I’m not a huge fan of JCS, or of Weber in general, but man, when Ted Neeley hits that high note. Ho-ly crap.

  • David C-D

    Actually I think I saw some post-resurrection scenes in there. So maybe he dies in the middle?

  • Hank Graham

    About midway through the trailer, I suddenly found myself remembering the National Lampoon’s :Son-O-God comic:

    It was hopeless after that–I kept breaking into laughter. Now *THAT* is a movie I’d like to see.
