When the "good and great" of Hollywood show up at a premiere of a new movie, they usually walk the red carpet as they pose for photos and interact with the media. But the carpet was not red last night in Los Angeles for The Chosen, but rather teal in keeping with the primary color associated with the show's logo and marketing materials.

The premiere of Season 4 took place at The Theatre at Ace Hotel - a 1920s-era gem located in downtown L.A. - and the filmmakers and actors behind the global hit show were there on that carpet, led by creator/director Dallas Jenkins and the series' star, Jonathan Roumie, who plays the Jesus character. The series, scheduled to ultimately run seven seasons, crosses the midway point this season and the 49-year-old native New Yorker and lead actor had this warning for fans: "Hold on to your hat."

"It's not for the faint of heart, but it's so worth it because it really starts to get gritty, and it starts to really dig into the real life of what Jesus and his disciples really would have went through: the pain and the hardship, and what that means."

Christian Film Blog did not attend the premiere, but the trailer gives some clear indications of what Roumie has in mind, with scenes of Jewish and Roman leaders conspiring against Jesus, Judas being drawn into their orbit, and John the Baptist marching to his doom, to name but a few of the starker moments. There are some inspiring scenes as well, including when Jesus resurrects his friend Lazarus, for instance, so it should not be all gloom without hope.


The fourth season will roll out in theaters in three installments beginning on February 1st with episodes 1-3. You can get all the details and purchase tickets via this link to the website of distributor Fathom Events.
