A New Trailer for God’s Not Dead

Here’s a second trailer for the God’s Not Dead movie. Seriously, I can’t wait to see this. It’s like a Christian version of the Karate Kid, with the professor as John Creese from the Cobra Kai and the freshman student as Daniel San. This is going to be hilariously idiotic. The unintentional comedy scale may be shattered forever. The only thing that could make me more excited about this movie is the presence of Billy Zabka.

    Every time I see a post about this movie, I want to start a Kickstarter project to make a movie of James Morrow’s “Towing Jehovah”. That was actually the book that started me down the path that questioning the existence of gods won’t kill me.

    Of course god’s not dead. Hercules surely knows his own father is alive, right?

    On seeing:

    “A New Trailer for God’s Not Dead”

    My first thought was, “Doublewide or 5th wheel with pop-outs?”

  • RickR

    Ugh. I could only make it halfway through. It’s a live-action Chick tract. Why not go whole hog and give the evil professor a set of devil horns?

    If Michaelangelo could see what Christian “art” has devolved to, he’d never stop throwing up.

  • John Pieret

    I can’t wait to see this

    Well, if you don’t want to see it on DVD, you’ll have to be pretty quick … it should last in theaters for about … oh … 30 seconds.

    I can’t wait to see the sequel: Torching More Strawmen.

  • hrafn

    A movie set around a college philosophy class, apparently written by people who have no idea what college philosophy classes entail. All that they appear to know is that many Christians lose their faith at college, so it must be because authority figures there are telling them not to believe. College-as-Sunday-School-for-atheists — talk about projection.

    Which god isn’t dead? There are thousands at the least.

    I know Thor isn’t dead. He just made a movie not too long ago. And his comic book series has been running for decades.

    @7:

    FFS, Raven, don’t do that! The Norse Bible, otherwise known as, “Thor” commix has been quietly subverting KKKristianist youth for over 50 years and turning them into pawns of Odin and Asgard; and now YOU let the cat out of the bag. Damn!!

  • jnorris

    Churches will rent a theater for private screenings for the flock. I can’t see this having any commercial appeal without Kirk Cameron (snark).

    hrafn, imagine the reaction of the kids marched to a theater to watch it when they actually get to a secular college and take an intro philosophy course and the prof isn’t Satan.

  • iknklast

    My philosophy professor wasn’t Satan; he was Hindu. I learned a lot about Rama and Siva and various other gods that are much more interesting than (and just as real as) Yahweh. Unfortunately, it didn’t destroy my faith, because that happened years before from a combination of actually reading the Christian Bible and studying Greek mythology in high school. Plus parents who accidentally taught me to think for myself, without realizing I would turn that skill onto the things they didn’t want me to think about.

  • dhall

    Kevin Sorbo and Dean Cain . . . so much for the former Hercules and Superman . . .

  • Pierce R. Butler

    By current Hollywood standards, this marks a step up: a movie not based on a tv show, video game, comic book, or another movie.

    We have the privilege of beholding a historic moment, and will bore our own other other peoples’ grandchildren with the boast of having witnessed the dawn of the movie-based-on-dumb-emails genre.

    I can’t wait to see the one about the Nigerian prince searching so sincerely for a friend to help him get his money to The Land of the Free™!

    ” The only thing that could make me more excited about this movie is the presence of Billy Zabka.”

    How about it being directed by the re-animated corpse of Ed Wood*?

    Like “Expelled”, this will make a beeline for church basements. I’ll bring the popcorn!

  • matty1

    Coming soon from the makers of God’s Not Dead an exciting new movie – Baby Jesus The Undeadening

    Gasp as arguments fly through the air with no support at all!

    Stare in disbelief as this film causes disbelief!

    Out soon in a church basement near you.

  • thalwen

    Duck Dynasty people – check

    The “enlightened” Christian student schooling his arrogant atheist professor trope – check

    Poorly written, unrealistic dialogue and plot – check and check.

    I’m going to get the popcorn and wait for this to come out – as a bad movie fan – this is sure to deliver. I pre-emptively give it 4 facepalms.

    “All this stuff is temporary,” says the Duck Dynasty doofus, even as he and the rest of the clan try to figure out how to keep the gravy train rolling. You can bet they’ll have to be dragged kicking and screaming off TV before it’s all done.

  • lofgren

    Ooh, I hope there’s a training montage of the Christian kid practicing lame internet apologetics to some awesome ’80s tunes.

    “How do you know if you weren’t there?! KEEEYAAH!”

    “If the Earth were a mile closer to the sun we would all burn up, a mile farther and we would all freeze! AAAIIII-CHAAAAH!”

    “NASA scientists have proven that the Earth stood still for one day. AH-HAAAAAH!”

    Then his mentor will be like, “Daniel-san, you are not sticking the landing when you say ‘How do you explain sunsets!’ I fear if you have not mastered this attack before the Championship Debate on Saturday, you will not win, and the professor will have hot, sinful, ecumenical sex with your girlfriend while you cry like a little bitch.”

    And that trailer’s name? Albert Einstein.

    @12 Pierce R. Butler

    Not based on a “contemporary” comic book.

    FIFY

  • Reginald Selkirk

    01:44 “Science supports his existence, you know the truth.”

    I don’t think I’ll be able to watch the whole movie if he’s going there.

  • joseph

    They got Andy Petitte to praise the film? He was a good pitcher, film critic not so much.

  • Sastra

    That trailer gives a hint of what looks like the climax of the movie. It’s clearly the winning point in the big philosophy class debate, one with huge import:

    Student: So science proves His existence and you know that! So why do you hate Him? Why … do… you … hate… Him?

    “Science proves God’s existence?” And atheists can be assumed to know that? Really?

    I wonder what sort of apologetic is being used here as the way to swat down all those intellectual objections to an emotional argument. Cosmology and the Big Bang? Fine Tuning? You can’t get something from Nothing? I’m on the edge of my seat with anticipation. Give the coupling with “atheists hate God” I’m sure there’ll be solid, cutting edge science coming up.

    Be careful!

    I’m on a laptop, dammit, these things are expensive!

    Towing Jehovah was awesome. But I recommend that people read James Marrow’s Bible Stories for Adults first. Sadly the two sequels to the novel were disappointments.

  • Dave Maier

    I’m confused – is Mike Napoli in this movie or not?

  • http://Www.metalmischief.com YOB – Ye Olde Blacksmith is a Spocktopus cuddler

    When is this “thing” coming out? Do i have time to make some fallacy bingo cards and then hand them out at the opening?

  • Michael Heath

    According to IMBD, Mike Napoli is not in the movie: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2528814/fullcredits?ref_=tt_ov_st_sm
