A new trailer for Mary Magdalene has just been released.
The film has a very intriguing pedigree: It stars Joaquin Phoenix as Jesus, Rooney Mara as Mary Magdalene and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Peter. The movie’s directed by Garth Davis, who saw positive critical attention for his 2016 film Lion.
From the official synopsis:
The movie was originally slated to be released in the U.S. over Easter weekend last year, but was temporarily shelved after The Weinstein Company imploded in the wake of the sexual abuse scandal involving Harvey Weinstein.
The film releases everywhere April 12.
