Watch the first trailer for The Big Lebowski spinoff The Jesus Rolls

John Turturro’s Jesus Quintana is fresh out of prison and ready to hit the road

John Turturro’s long-awaited The Big Lebowski spinoff, The Jesus Rolls, was finally given a release date late last month, and now the first trailer for the film (released February 6) has arrived.

The trailer shows Turturro – the writer and director – reprising his role as the bowler (and registered sex offender) Jesus Quintana. Jesus is fresh out of prison and already embarking on a road trip in a stolen car with his best friend (played by Bobby Cannavale).

Jon Hamm, Christopher Walken, Pete Davidson, and more also feature in the petty crime caper, alongside the appropriately-cast Susan Sarandon, of Thelma & Louise.

Though Joel and Ethan Coen, the minds behind The Big Lebowski, decided not to get involved with a sequel, Turturro does apparently have their blessing. “They're my friends, close friends,” he says in an interview with Variety, “and were supportive when I said I wanna explore this character more”.

Jesus Rolls is set to release in the US February 28 and in the UK March 20.
