First Official Trailer for MARY MAGDALENE with Rooney Mara & Joaquin Phoenix as Jesus

MARY MAGDALENE is an upcoming 2018 biblical drama film directed by Garth Davis (Lion) and written by playwright Helen Edmundson and Philippa Goslett (How to Talk to Girls at Parties). It stars Rooney Mara as the titular character, Joaquin Phoenix as Jesus, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Peter, and Tahar Rahim as Judas.

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.
