Trailer for "God's Not Dead 2" is out, makes Baby Jesus cry.

Posted By on Fri, Nov 6, 2015 at 5:07 PM



The trailer for "God's Not Dead 2," the Little Rock-filmed sequel to "God's Not Dead" (and inevitable prequel to "No, Seriously: God's Very Much Alive and Well, I Assure You") is out now on Youtube. The film is sure to make a gazillion dollars from the righteous looking to feed their martyr fantasies, and features plentiful Arkansas stuff in the background to make you go "Hey, it's that place!" and a church bus full of B-listers to make you go "Hey, it's that guy!" 

As seen in the trailer, the plot revolves around a public school teacher (Sabrina the No Longer Teenage Witch) running afoul of The Godless Liberals after she answers a student's question about Jesus Christ in her classroom. At the mention of Christ, a dour coven of ACLU attorneys materializes in a puff of brimstone, vowing, for some reason, to prove that God is dead. This leads to plentiful courtroom drama (actual line from the trailer: "I ACCEPT the charge [of contempt of court], because I have nothing but contempt for these proceedings!" He's gonna put the SYSTEM on trial, man!).  Editor's Note: the role of ACLU of Arkansas executive director Rita Sklar will apparently be played by a former "Robocop" henchman.

If you can stand a blast of overly-earnest Christian Rock theme songsterizing, give it a watch.

  • Arkansas Repertory Theatre to suspend operations immediately

    “The inability to reach its projected goals for charitable giving and ticket sales, and the change in the theatre landscape in Little Rock have created a perfect financial storm for The Rep,” Board Chair Brian Bush said. “The Rep’s ticket sales have been on a downhill slope for several years. Our community is on the verge of losing an amazing arts organization and tremendous asset to our city. Closing The Rep will have a devastating impact on the redevelopment of Main Street and the creative corridor.”
