Watch Joaquin Phoenix as Jesus and Rooney Mara as Mary Magdalene in This Powerful New Trailer

BY RELEVANT December 01, 2017

A trailer for the upcoming Bible epic Mary Magdalene has just been released.

In the film, Rooney Mara plays Mary Magdalene and Joaquin Phoenix portrays Jesus Christ. The new take on the New Testament story looks powerful.

From the official description:

Set in the Holy Land in the first century C.E., a young woman leaves her small fishing village and traditional family behind to join a radical new social movement. At its head is a charismatic leader, Jesus of Nazareth, who promises that the world is changing. Mary is searching for a new way of living, and an authenticity that is denied her by the rigid hierarchies of the day. As the notoriety of the group spread and more are drawn to follow Jesus’ inspirational message, Mary’s spiritual journey places her at the heart of a story that will lead to the capital city of Jerusalem, where she must confront the reality of Jesus’ destiny and her own place within it.

The movie releases next year.
