SNL's Tarantino Movie Trailer: Djesus Uncrossed Starring Christoph Waltz

Posted on February 17, 2013

Oscar winner Christoph Waltz hosted Saturday Night Live and did a fantastic job. Perhaps inspired by Waltz, the writers really stretched themselves this week. They took a lot of risks. In this shocking faux movie trailer we see clips from Quentin Tarantino's latest film, DJesus Uncrossed which is cross between Inglorious Basterds and Django Unchained. The historical revenge fantasy stars Waltz as Jesus Christ. After his resurrection, he goes seeking revenge against the Romans who killed him. "He's risen from the dead, and he's preaching anything but forgiveness," intones the narrator. When a shocked Roman sees him resurrected and exclaims, "Jesus H.
