Passion Play Trailer

"How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?" We're bound to have some fun with this trailer. Apple has posted a trailer for Mitch Glazer's Passion Play, the half fantasy, half indie noir drama starring Megan Fox and Mickey Rourke. Its also got Bill Murray, Kelly Lynch, Jerry Sawyers and Rhys Ifans. As interested as you may be in this, let me point you towards many of the scathing reviews of the film from Toronto, like this one calling it "a 90 minute mess" with "downright stupid situations and terrible green screen work." And to be honest, this trailer really isn't that great anyway. Yea, it's definitely a big skip, sadly.

Watch the official trailer for Mitch Glazer's Passion Play:

You can also watch the Passion Play trailer in High Def on Apple

An angel under the thumb of a ruthless gangster is saved by a trumpet player (Rourke) down on his luck.

Passion Play is both written and directed by American producer/filmmaker Mitch Glazer, screenwriter of Scrooged, Off and Running, Great Expectations and The Recruit, making his feature directing debut. This premiered to very low reviews at the Toronto Film Festival last year, which is quite unfortunate. Image Entertainment will be opening Passion Play in limited theaters May 6th then straight to DVD on May 31st.

I don't forget most things but I managed to forget that this existed... That says it all. Can't believe this got made.

Erika Payne on Apr 15, 2011


This looks really good. A nasty Bill Murray, that's a welcome change.

just slapping on academy award/nominees with a Megan Fox movie doesn't mean you have something worth watching

You realize the title "Worth Skipping" and the description basically makes this a must watch right? I want to see how bad this is.

that didnt look half bad, i mean it has to be better than garfield at least...

Brian Barajas on Apr 15, 2011


I saw it in Toronto - it's weird and sad and cool. I think too many people hate Megan Fox so they started slagging this beautiful film without even SEEING IT!? That's not fair! The whole cast's great in it and played out of their 'comfort zones'. Which is pretty brave. Everyone loved it at our screening and I will pay to see it again.

If this was a french film, noone would toss the crap around like they have about this film

David Banner on Apr 16, 2011


After Rourke's candid comments on this being terrible, I have to say if I didn't know any better I'd have though it had potential just by the fact that I dig Rourke and Murray.

Johnny Neat on Apr 15, 2011


P.s. the trailer's editor deserves praise.

Johnny Neat on Apr 15, 2011


I didn't think it looked too bad at all... did I miss something?
