LOS ANGELES, June 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- This June, an extremist group will travel back in time with one goal: to assassinate Jesus Christ before he is crucified. The story will play out in the sci-fi adventure drama Black Easter debuting on Amazon Prime on Thursday, June 24. Written and directed by Jim Carroll, it is already being panned as the 'most controversial movie of the year'.
Starring Jason Castro as Jesus Christ, Black Easter is nothing short of action-packed, centering on a group of young geniuses responsible for creating a time travel machine only to find that extremists, led by the financer of the machine, are attempting to use it for religious assassination. But their interference in the evil plot causes mankind to enter an apocalypse leaving the fate of the world in the hands of a genius with no faith and a man who has lost his. The film also stars Gerardo Davila and Johnny Rey Diaz.
"My goal with Black Easter was to create a movie that was not only highly entertaining and filled with excitement at every twist and turn but one that also leaves the audience with a taste of the Gospel in a way that they don't feel like they're being lectured to," said Carroll. "Everybody always says 'Why doesn't someone make a good Christian movie, something that isn't preachy?' Well, now we have one.
With a pre-release at select Studio Movie Grill theaters, Black Easter has received widespread prestigious international attention including being crowned 'Best Action Screenplay' at the Los Angeles Film Awards, 'Best Featured Script' at the Calcutta International Cult Film Festival and 'Best Original Screenplay Winner' at the London Independent Film Awards in addition to being honored at the Barcelona Film Festival. Early critics have also given the film a coveted positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
