Everyone’s heard the story of Jesus, but what about Clarence?
From writer/director Jeymes Samuel, who brought us the epic Black Western The Harder They Fall, comes a new biblical comedy, which sees a wannabe Messiah (LaKeith Stanfield) attempting to make his fortunate by building a following and performing a fake miracle or two.
The problem? Pontius Pilate (James McAvoy) is determined to get in his way. The Book of Clarence also stars Omar Sy, Anna Diop, RJ Cyler, David Oyelowo, Micheal Ward, Alfre Woodard, Teyana Taylor, Caleb McLaughlin, Eric Kofi-Abrefa, Marianne Jean-Baptiste, and Benedict Cumberbatch, and features music from Samuels and Jay-z.
How to watch: The Book of Clarence is in theaters from Jan. 12.
