In the satirical comedy Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul., Regina Hall and Sterling K. Brown are church leaders destined for sin. The two star as Pastor Lee-Curtis Childs (Brown) and his wife, first lady Trinitie (Hall), who once served thousands of believers at the Wander to Greater Paths Baptist megachurch.
When Pastor Childs is accused of misconduct, the church is forced to close and they invite a documentary crew to follow "the biggest comeback that commodified religion has ever seen."
The trailer previews everything that might threaten that comeback, with the documentary crew capturing the pastor stepping in gum ("We can edit around that...right?" he asks), a passive-aggressive confrontation with a former congregant, and a failed attempt at hyping up the church's re-opening, with Hall attempting to shake it for the lord while holding the titular signage.
"Get my honks for the Lord!" Lee cheers her on.
The movie is executive produced by Jordan Peele, produced by Daniel Kaluuya and marks the feature directorial debut of Adamma Ebo, who also produces alongside her twin sister, Adanne Ebo. Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul. premiered during this year's Sundance Film Festival.
Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul. opens in theaters and is streaming on Peacock on September 2. Watch the trailer below.
