A tale as old as time set a bunch of new records at the box office last weekend.
Box office: Beauty and the Beast has the sixth-best opening of all time, while The Shack cracks the “faith-based” Top 10
Last Days in the Desert is out on video now, so it was probably only a matter of time before some enterprising Star Wars fan took the footage of Ewan McGregor sitting in the desert and turned it into a “trailer” for a film about the time Obi-Wan Kenobi spent on Tatooine between Episodes III and IV of the space-opera saga.
Watch: A new clip, a soundtrack preview, and B-roll footage from Last Days in the Desert; plus new interviews
Fireside chats seem to be a thing in Last Days in the Desert. Jesus (as played by Ewan McGregor) had one with Tye Sheridan in a clip that I posted last week; then he had one with Satan (also played by McGregor) in a clip I posted yesterday. And now he has one with Sheridan and his parents, played by Ciaran Hinds and Ayelet Zurer.
Watch: Satan tells Jesus God’s plan is “repetitive” in a clip from Last Days in the Desert; plus new interviews
Last Days in the Desert — starring Ewan McGregor as both Jesus and Satan — comes to theatres this Friday, and there are more clips and interviews to watch and read.
