Have I ever mentioned how much I love Monty Python?
Spurred by the recent success of Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ”, the Python boys have decided to celebrate the 25th anniversary of one of their films by re-releasing it to the theaters.
The Biblical satire will be re-released in Los Angeles, New York and other US cities to mark its 25th anniversary.
Adverts will challenge Mel Gibson’s blockbuster with the lines “Mel or Monty?”, “The Passion or the Python?”
Distributor Rainbow said it hoped the film would “serve as an antidote to all the hysteria about Mel’s movie”.
If it hits Seattle, I’m so there.
