Sony’s TriStar Pictures has unveiled the first trailer for Risen starring Tom Felton, Joseph Fiennes, Peter Firth, and Cliff Curtis. The action drama, formerly titled Clavius, was directed by Kevin Reynolds (Waterworld, Tristan and Isolde) and produced by Mickey Liddell, Patrick Aiello, and Pete Shilaimon. Reynolds also wrote the script along with Paul Aiello.
Risen arrives in theaters on January 22, 2016.
Risen is the epic Biblical story of the Resurrection and the weeks that followed, as seen through the eyes of an unbelieving Clavius (Joseph Fiennes), a high-ranking Roman Military Tribune. Clavius and his aide Lucius (Tom Felton) are instructed by Pontius Pilate to ensure Jesus’ radical followers don’t steal his body and claim resurrection. When the body goes missing within days, Clavius sets out on a mission to locate the missing body in order to disprove the rumors of a risen Messiah and prevent an uprising in Jerusalem.
