Trailer: Mara, Phoenix In “Mary Magdalene”

In the immediate wake of the “Avengers: Infinity War” trailer, a the first preview for a very different kind of film has been released – the Biblical biopic “Mary Magdalene” which is slated to open March 30th.

Rooney Mara stars as the titular Mary opposite Joaquin Phoenix as Jesus Christ in what’s been dubbed an “authentic and humanistic portrait of one of the most enigmatic and misunderstood spiritual figures in history”.

Constricted by the hierarchies of the day, Mary defies her traditional family to join a new social movement led by the charismatic Jesus of Nazareth. She soon finds a place for herself within the movement and at the heart of a journey that will lead to the capital city of Jerusalem.
