Rooney Mara & Joaquin Phoenix Star In New MARY MAGDALENE Trailer

MARY MAGDALENE rooney mara
A second trailer for the upcoming bible epic.







Rooney Mara reteams with her Lion director Garth Davis for Mary Magdalene, in which Mara plays the title role, with Joaquin Phoenix playing Jesus. Chiwetel Ejiofor and Tahar Rahim also star. 

Will Davis's film be as interesting as recent biblical offerings Noah and Risen, or merely a cynical attempt at nabbing the increasingly lucrative Christian dollar? Find out March 16th, when Mary Magdalene opens in UK/ROI cinemas.


The official synopsis reads:

MARY MAGDALENE is an authentic and humanistic portrait of one of the most enigmatic and misunderstood spiritual figures in history. 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.
