Salvation Boulevard Trailer

"Carl may, or may not, be demonically possessed." IFC Films has debuted the official trailer for a religious indie comedy called Salvation Boulevard that premiered at Sundance and stars quite a doozy of a cast. Directed by George Ratliff, the film stars Greg Kinnear as a Christian who sees his pastor, played by Pierce Brosnan, kill a guy and must go on the run. Sounds fun and honestly, this is a great trailer, it really sells it almost like a religious Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. The cast also includes: Jennifer Connelly, Marisa Tomei, Ed Harris, Isabelle Fuhrman and Jim Gaffigan. Give it a shot, you might actually enjoy this!

Set in the world of mega-churches in which a former Deadhead-turned-born again-Christian finds himself on the run from fundamentalist members of his mega-church who will do anything to protect their pastor.

Salvation Boulevard is both written & directed by George Ratliff, director of documentaries Hell House and Plutonium Circus, and the horror film Joshua. The screenplay was co-written by Ratliff and Doug Max Stone, based on Larry Beinhart's novel of the same name. This premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year. Mandalay & IFC Films are bringing Salvation Boulevard to limited theaters on July 15th in summer.

    Brosnan and Kinnear was fun in the underrarted The Matador!
    • I wasn't the biggest fan, I thought it was okay. As for weird films, I still like Brosnan in The Thomas Crown Affair.
      • Ryderup
        I thought it was very enoyable. Brosnan is really good at playing "twisted". Haven't seen that The Thomas Croiwn Affair...
  • :(
    Seeing stuff like this just ticks me off. It just seems that as the times keep going by, Christianity just keeps being demolished more and more by the most cliche stereotypes. Idiots like Harold Camping who give the gospel a bad wrap only add more fuel to the fire. Sadly I expect to see more garbage from the media like this in the coming months.

      So many cliches.... so little time

      The saddest thing is that the majority of people calling themselves Christians are this loopy and idiotic.  The reason atheists have so much ammunition against Christianity is because it is falsely preached by many people the world over, most notably the Catholic religion with its ridiculously privileged "vicar for Christ" (that's vice-Christ) on Earth, the Poop.  Do you think Jesus walked around in all that lavish, ornate clothing, and lived in a palace?  Of course not. In this way, I think religion is portrayed perfectly in films like this.  I'm actually more peeved about movies that attempt to glorify religions and religious leaders and give credence to the idea that Catholic priests can battle, or have some power over the devil, like in The Exorcist, which while entertaining, is just superstition, redundantly so.

      Hehe. Please. "Stop picking on christianity". Grow up and stop believing in ghosts.

        So you are possessed with certain knowledge that Christianity is false?  Please do share your enlightenment with us. Better hope you're right.  If you are, you're worm-food, and that's it.  A pretty quiet end.  If you aren't, you're Hellbound, and Clive Barker's worst nightmare will be a picnic in comparison.  Oh, and still waiting for a similar take-down of Islam.  Any BRAVE filmmakers willing to step up?  I thought not.

          Eternal torment after death is another myth spread by religious evangelists fear mongering in order to recruit more masses.

    Reminds me of Steve Martin's Leap Of Faith which was a great movie This looks fun.. and its good to see Ed Harris play a funny guy for once

    This was a huge hit at the Dallas International Film Festival. Simply loved it and Brosnan does his best to distance himself from 007 doing wonders in the role.
  • JL
    This looks Coen Bros. meets Farrelly Bros.  Chock full of quirkiness, insanity, and dark humor.
  • I think it looks funny, making fun of religion is hilarious, but it is also making fun of people with mental health problems which isn't so cool.
  • Vidzo
    Isabelle Fuhrman ---> Orphan,, lol
  • Cody W.
    Looks fun.
  • Traveler
    Yeah... There have been a lot of anti-Christian movies lately. Its getting old. We get it, Hollywood hates Christianity. No surprises there... 
    • JL
      Of course it does.  The Jews don't recognize the New Testament as canonical.  For that reason, there will be a lot more Christian-bashing movies to come.

    I like Brosnan playing a deceiving douchebag
  • Lamar
    Oh look, another movie that portrays Christians as crazed, deluded people that are to be made fun of (sarcasm). Its gonna leave a lot of people like "JL" happy though. Its just sad.
  • Humbug
    Iv'e yet to see a movie of this caliber make fun of the Muslim faith of the jewish fait at that, Crhistianity seems to be the choice for filmakers now days.
  • Troy Ollis
    All a film like this does is damage the reputation of Christians who aren't insane nutjobs.
