The Brand New Testament Feature Trailer (2015)
Feature trailer for The Brand New Testament, distributed in anticipation of the film's domestic release.
Directed by Jaco Van Dormael comes a poetic, magical, hilarious comedy in which God is real... and lives in Brussels. On Earth, he is a coward, with dubious morals and an odious antipathy toward his family. His daughter, Ea, can’t stand being locked up in a small apartment in such an ordinary city. So she decides to revolt against her dad. Hacking his computer and leaking to the entire world the dates of each of the population’s death, she causes a global pandemic and heads out to find her own set of disciples to spread a new testament of joy and kindness.
There is a scene in The Brand New Testament where audiences see a man killed by a bus only after getting a message that he has a few seconds remaining to live. That man is the film's director, Jaco Van Dormael, who thought his cameo should be a special one.
While the feature trailer for The Brand New Testament looks so eccentric to the point of bat shit crazy -- and not to mention sacrilegious -- the film actually did very well with the critics. So well that Metrodome Distribution is hoping that it can at least find a limited audience here in the States.
