Description
Summary:Blockbusters are the most conspicuous film format of our era. Their targeting to a global audience and potential religious content mean that they are of interest for religious education which strives to analyse and describe global popular culture in order to establish a foundation for engaging with culture in terms of religious education. Following several remarks on blockbusters and their educational relevance (1), 'Jupiter Ascending' (USA 2015) will be introduced as an example of this film format (2) and analysed (3). Among other things, it becomes clear that religion is also portrayed polyvalently in the film. On the basis of the results of the film analysis, considerations (4) of the possibilities for viewing and dealing with a blockbuster in the context of religious education are discussed, namely to foster media and interreligious competence and as part of Christian utopia formation.
