Watch: The Life of Jesus Christ Unfolds in Fox's 'Son of God' Trailer
Following the success of "The Bible" on History, the producers are back with another tale inspired by the religious book. Son of God follows Jesus Christ (Diogo Morgado) from his birth to his loyally followed teachings and milestone events such as the crucifixion and resurrection. This is the first time a major motion picture from a studio like 20th Century Fox has focused on Jesus since the controversial but successful Passion of the Christ from Mel Gibson, and now we have a trailer. Because of the subject matter, this has a built-in audience who will take buses to see the film, but we doubt it will be a box office giant.
Here's the trailer for Christopher Spencer's Son of God, originally from Yahoo:
Son of God is directed by Christopher Spencer ("The Bible") from a script co-written by Colin Swash, Nic Young & Richard Bedser (all writers of "The Bible"). Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado portrays the role of Jesus as the film spans from his humble birth through his teachings, crucifixion and ultimate resurrection. Featuring a score by Hans Zimmer, the film also stars Greg Hicks, Adrian Schiller, Darwin Shaw, Sebastian Knapp, Joe Wredden, Simon Kunz, Paul Marc Davis, Matthew Gravelle, Amber Rose Revah, Roma Downey and more. 20th Century Fox releases the film just before Ash Wednesday on February 28th, 2014. Well?
