Any film depicting the lives of Mary Magdalene and Jesus is bound to cause a stir within Christian circles and it remains to be seen how Mary Magdalene will be received next month. In the meantime, Universal have a released a new trailer for the film which you see above.

The biblical biopic tells the story of Mary (Rooney Mara), a young woman in search of a new way of living. 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 (Joaquin Phoenix). She soon finds a place for herself within the movement and at the heart of a journey that will lead to Jerusalem.

Garth Davis (Lion) will be directing with the cast also starring Chiwetel Ejiofor and Tahar Rahim.
