Regina Hall's 'Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul.' Mockumentary Trailer
"We need you back in that pulpit!" Focus Features has revealed the official trailer for the satirical comedy Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul., which premiered at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. The film plays as a mockumentary about a very fancy, wealthy Pastor and First Lady of a Southern Baptist megachurch. It follows them through the aftermath of a huge scandal, trying to move on from what they did and recover and rebuild their congregation. Regina Hall stars as Trinitie Childs, and Sterling K. Brown as Pastor Lee-Curtis Childs. It's a funny look at how ridiculously scammy and awful these "megachurches" are, and how these people are incredibly fake and will do anything to maintain their God-like perfect image, even if it's complete bullshit. The cast includes Nicole Beharie, Conphidance, Austin Crute, Devere Rogers, Robert Yatta, & Greta Glenn. This received mixed reviews during Sundance, but it looks better than it sounds, with the Christopher Guest-esque doc style complimenting the awkward humor rather well.
Here's the official trailer for Adamma & Adanne Ebo's Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul., from YouTube:
