‘Risen’ Movie: Joseph Fiennes Investigates The Resurrection Of Jesus Christ [Watch The New Trailer]

The story of the Resurrection of Jesus Christ is hinted in the newly released “Risen” trailer. The movie is slated to hit the big screen on January 22, 2016. Read below to know more in details.

In the upcoming movie “Risen,” Tom Felton and Joseph Fiennes will be seen in the characters of two Romanian soldiers who will try to solve the mystery of the resurrection of Christ (the character played by Cliff Curtis). According to Coming Soon, a powerful Roman Military Tribune named Clavius (to be played by Fiennes) and his assistant Lucius (Felton) are assigned by Pontius Pilate (Peter Firth) to investigate into the highly mysterious subject of what happened to “Jesus of Nazareth” in the weeks just after his crucifixion. With the help of Lucius, Clavius’ onus would be to disprove the rumors of a risen Messiah and stop the uprising in Jerusalem.


Those who crucified Christ feel that he is no more. They bring his body down from the cross and hand over to his followers. Christ’s followers wrap his body in this muslin and keep it in a cave, the mouth of which they block with a large boulder. When Clavius, with the aid of Lucius removes the boulder, they find the empty cave.

But here is not the end, rather the detective work of Clavius starts. He starts interrogating the followers of “The Nazarene” (everyone refers to Christ as “The Nazarene”) to find out what actually happened.

“That’s where the detective work comes in. This is an extraordinary story and well-known to everyone. But it takes us on this journey through the eyes of a nonbeliever,” the 45-year old of 2004 movie “The Merchant of Venice” star (who played Bassanio) Fiennes said, as reported by USA Today.

It is reportedly said that the producer of “Risen,” Mickey Liddell worked for over a decade and then brought the story to Kevin Reynolds who took over the task of directing the movie. The 63-year old Reynolds is known for his famous movies like “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves” (1991), and “Hatfields & McCoys” (2012).
