Jesus movies may not rock your movie-going life, but this one just might, as it promises to be a blockbusting record-setter at the box office. It goes to show that movies don't have to be about Marvel characters to rake in millions of viewers and big money.

The Jesus movie is, of course, the sequel to Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ" back in 2004. At the time, the movie was a lot more than just controversial. It was almost a horror story in the graphic details of the death of Jesus Christ.

Jesus' story in the 'Passion of the Christ' was traumatizing

People were traumatized by it! Not to mention that CBS rated it as one of the most dangerous movies made. They quoted a Reuters report that said that lead actor Jim Caviezel, suffered "numerous injuries, including gashes on his back from scripted whippings, hypothermia, and a separated shoulder after carrying the cross." On top of that, Caviezel and the film's assistant director Jan Michelini were struck by lightning, (which is ironic).

Jesus' crucifixion and passion and death is to be followed by "The Resurrection," CinemaBlend report. Actor Caviezel will again play Jesus in the movie. While CinemaBlend says we don't know much about the plot, it should not be too hard to figure out - you can read it up in the bible. That book is going to be full of spoilers!

USA Today spoke to Jim Caviezel and he seems convinced that the Jesus movie will be even bigger at the box office than the record-setting "The Passion of the Christ." He promises that it will be a beast of a blockbusting Jesus movie - even though the film hasn't been shot yet.

He will reprise the role in a movie sequel to the film that brought in $612 million worldwide on only a $30 million production budget. The next Jesus movie to make any money and impact was by Sony and entitled 'Risen." In comparison, the movie only got "$46 million worldwide on a $20 million budget," according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Jim Caviezel will reprise the role of Jesus

But Mel Gibson was not involved, and one thing we know about Gibson is that his graphics are amazing, he does not dress up a sad story to make it pretty, and he still has what it takes. It was uncertain that he was going to offer the role of Jesus to Caviezel in the movie, but he has and Jim is excited about it.

He told USA Today, “The Resurrection. Big subject. Oh, my God," he said. "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.”

Both Mel Gibson and 'Jesus' have so far failed to disclose when the movie might be released for screening. However, if it is anything like "Braveheart" and "The Passion of the Christ," expect it to be well worth the wait. This could very well be another record-setting blockbusting Jesus movie from the maestro.
