Bosworth coming to Roxy to show Revelation movie

Former OU star says it reflects his spiritual progression

— Brian Bosworth said his new movie, which will be screened Saturday at the Roxy Theater, reflects the last 27 years of his life.

“I’m excited to bring a film like this that has moved me spiritually and give people a little understanding of what’s happened in my life,” the former University of Oklahoma linebacker said.

Bosworth said he was looking forward to sharing the message of the movie, “Revelation Road.”

The movie, based on the book of Revelation, features Bosworth as a vengeance-fueled and bitter man who is looking to “get back” at everyone he encounters, especially Christians.

He comes across Josh, a Christian who is a “reluctant recipient” of Christ coming into his heart. During their encounter, the Rapture happens.

Bosworth said his character understands the power of God but feels that the power is abused.

“My feud is with God,” he said of his character. “But since I can’t get to him, I take it out on everyone else. Part one is about this collision course with Josh and the Rapture happening.”

The movie is divided into two parts, the first of which will be shown Saturday. Bosworth said part two would be released sometime in “late summer.”

“People think they’ll get better ‘tomorrow,’” he said. “But the scripture is very clear. It’s God’s time, it’s God’s moment; when the Rapture happens it’s going to happen. If you’re left behind, you’re going to wish you could DVR your life back and do some things over.”

As a perk for those who come to the screening, Bosworth will autograph  movie posters that he created for the screening. He added that fans could get an autographed copy through his Facebook page.

The screening tour, which has covered many cities in Oklahoma, started March 1 in Altus. Muskogee is the middle stop, and Bosworth said he’d like to repeat the tour with the second part of the movie.

“I’d love to visit everyone who wants us to come out,” he said. “Things move fast, though. Part of this is a journey that I’ve felt pulled to take by bringing the film to Oklahoma. I wanted to share the importance of this with Oklahoma, because it’s the state where I was born and reborn.”
