Official U.S. Trailer for ‘The Brand New Testament’
“Did you know that God is alive and lives in Brussels with his daughter?” Music Box Films have released a brand new trailer for Belgian director Jaco Van Dormael‘s (Mr. Nobody) religious parody The Brand New Testament, which was nominated for a Golden Globe in 2016.
Starring Benoît Poelvoorde, Catherine Deneuve, Yolande Moreau, François Damiens and Pili Groyne, the movie presents a view of God as the man (Poelvoorde) who lives with his family in Brussels and the story focuses on his young rebellious daughter (Groyne), who embarks upon a revolutionary plan to text everyone in the world with their date of death.
The Brand New Testament will hit select U.S. theaters on December 9th. Check out the new trailer and poster below.
If you enjoy absurd comedy and/or blasphemy, definitely seek this out.
God exists! He lives in Brussels, a petty tyrant to his wife and ten year-old daughter, Ea. Like her brother before her, Ea has had enough of her father using humanity as his playthings and hacks into His computer, leaking to the entire world their inevitable death date. After escaping, Ea must gather six more apostles in order to end His bullying and fix the mess he’s made of humanity. What remains is Jaco Van Dormael’s witty and eccentric answer to the loaded question: what would you do if you knew exactly how much time you had left to live?
