Going Places aka Sequel to Big Lewbowski sponsored by Overlord

When I think "sequel to Big Lebowski," what I definitely want is a gestating-for-three-years-and-counting story focusing on Turturro's "Jesus" character.

Oh right, I totally forgot they were doing this.
"Why did she do it?"
"Why are you the fucking Police?"

I thought this already came out a couple years ago and I just missed it. I was just wonder about this movie somewhat recently.

Apparently this isn't a sequel to Big Lebowski. I think Jesus Quintana came from like some short Turturro had done, or a play, I remember reading something about it when news of this was around a few years ago; the character was pretty much someone Turturro had already played before that the Coen's put in The Big Lebowski. Basically it sounds like the same kind of situation as Esmarelda Villalobos in Pulp Fiction, how she's Gabriela Ponce from the Curdled short.

The weirdest aspect is that it's a remake of classic 70's French film (it launched Gerard Depardieu's career) which has *nothing* to do with The big Lebowski in terms of tone or themes, it's more a social comedy with a lot of provocative sexual situations (especially for its time). I don't really expect something "good" but I'm curious nevertheless.

I saw the original years ago. I'd heard this was a remake of a French film, but didn't realise it was that French film.


If you take a glance at the synopsis you can see how if this is a faithful remake it may prove... controversial.

That's just what I assumed living in France was like.

This project is so weird that I'm eager to see it, even though I'll probably hate the hell out of it.
I was in a horror-comedy called BLACK HOLLER. It's now on Prime Video. Check it out!

Darn it.  I was hoping for Les Cousins Dangereux.

Definitely a more professional-looking trailer.

I don't have high hopes I will get to see this on the silver screen (didn't even get COLOR OUT OF SPACE), but this seems too bizarre to pass up.  Plus it is an excuse to rewatch THE BIG LEBOWSKI and get around to GOING PLACES, which I want to walk into this having seen.

I wonder how well it will go over in current year that the main character of this movie, who while a criminal seems to be a general enjoyable character, is also a sex offender with a record? Is that a aspect of the character from Big Lewbowski they just aren't going to bring up, and even if so will that matter because people still remember it from Big Lewbowski? Does it get reconned for this version?

I suspect a retcon. Maybe it was all a minsunderstanding!

Maybe he gets cancelled from his bowling alley?

I'm almost positive I read somewhere along the way that was going to be the case, "eight year olds, dude" was a crime he didn't commit.

Well, he did something where he had to go door-to-door. I guess they could play it as a terrible misunderstood instead of something intentional if they don't just drop it altogether.

It wasn't something I'd really though about, especially since people really seem to like his character in The Big Lewbowski. But I was recently reading some article about Once Upon A Time In Hollywood, and it got me thinking about how some people react to character over that last few years, and then seeing the thread of this movie I thought: Oh, that's something they're going to have to deal with because I can see some nagative articles and bad Twitter reactions coming this things way. The original news about this movie, when they first announced it like 2015 or 2016 sounded like it didn't really have anything to do with Big Lebowski, it was just this weird thing using a character Turturro played before Big Lewbowski that happens to be in The Big Lewbowski so I could kind of see how they'd get around his criminal recorded. But these trailers with the bowling would seem to tie it into Big Lesbowski way more than I originally thought.

His criminal behavior in the newest trailer is kind of interesting. Up until now, when he talked about killing Walter in The Big Lesbowski I just took it as talk, but here it kind of seems like maybe it might not have been.

I checked out the trailer. Pete Davidson, Jon Hamm playing that character he always plays, what's not to like?

(besides that it looks ok)
