Jim Caviezel: ‘Passion of the Christ’ Sequel Will Be ‘Biggest Film in History’

Posted by addisethiopia on February 1, 2018

Jim Caviezel, the actor who memorably portrayed Jesus in director Mel Gibson’s 2004 blockbuster The Passion of the Christ, says that Gibson is planning a sequel that will be “the biggest film in history. It’s that good.”

The Passion is already one the biggest films in history. Fourteen years on it still holds the domestic box office record for an R-rated movie ($371 million). From Gethsemane to Golgotha, The Passion told the story of the last 12 hours of Christ’s life — his arrest, trials, torture, and crucifixion. The Faithful turned out in droves despite an unprecedented campaign within the elite media to smear a film they had not seen as anti-Semitic — which it is not.

The 49-year-old Caviezel says he is back on board to portray Jesus. The story will reportedly revolve around Christ’s resurrection. “There are things that I cannot say that will shock the audience,” he told USA Today. “It’s great. Stay tuned.”

Hollywood’s anti-Christian bigotry was apparent in every major studios’ incomprehensible refusal to distribute The Passion, a film helmed by a huge star, a proven talent who had already won a Best Director Oscar for Braveheart. Gibson, however, got the last laugh.

Off a mere $30 million budget, Gibson still managed to get his film seen in enough theaters worldwide to gross a breathtaking $611 million.

The success of The Passion, which surprised no one who lives in the real world, immediately changed Hollywood. An industry that had been openly hostile to Christians almost immediately began producing and releasing faith-based films, a sea change that continues to this day.

Last year, Gibson talked a little bit about his plans, “The Resurrection. Big subject. Oh, my God,” he told USA Today. “We’re trying to craft this in a way that’s cinematically compelling and enlightening so that it shines new light, if possible, without creating some weird thing.”

Selected Comments:

Finally! A movie I can go see!!

Gibson is proof that God can use fallible humans for His purposes. Gibson is not perfect, but the message of Christ told through Gibson’s work, (namely, The Passion of The Christ) certainly is.

The Passion of the Christ saved a lot of Souls, and if this Movie sticks to the Truth of the Bible, many more Souls will be saved.

I’m not even a religious person, but I am very excited for this film. It’s bound to upset a lot of people. Plus, Passion was by far the best film ever made about Jesus’s last moments. If its anything like the first movie, it will be a massive success. PLEASE just make it accurate.

Then you can do one on the life of Paul since Hollywood seems desperate to suppress what he teaches. Something about that Grace message….

Jesus Christ =

1. God with us
2. The Light of the world
3. Son of David
4. The Lamb of God…
5. WHO TAKES AWAY THE SIN OF THE WORLD
6. SALVATION
7. DELIVERANCE
8. SON OF GOD
9. SECOND PERSON OF THE TRINITY
10. Lion of the Tribe of Judah

I refuse to go to the theaters but for this movie I will make an exception
