The Coen brothers' 1998 comedy The Big Lebowski failed to make much of an impact on its original release, but has developed a huge cult following in the decades since.

One of its most memorable characters is Jesus Quintana, the petty thief and bowling enthusiast played by John Turturro, who reprises the role for The Jesus Rolls, with the actor also writing and directing. Along with being a Lebowski spinoff, Turturro's film is based on Bertrand Blier's 1974 comedy Going Places.

As with Blier's film, the plot of The Jesus Rolls sees Quintana embark on a crime spree with a buddy (Bobby Cannavale) and a hairdresser (Audrey Tautou) in tow. The all-star cast also features Christopher Walken, Susan Sarandon, Jon Hamm and Pete Davidson.

The Jesus Rolls is in UK cinemas March 20th, followed by VOD March 23rd.

Check out the new trailer below.



The official synopsis reads:

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…
