Two years ago, I made a spreadsheet charting the similarities and differences between The Bible and its big-screen spin-off Son of God. Last year, I wrote detailed recaps for each episode of A.D. The Bible Continues, noting how the series made use of both the scriptures and secular history. Now it’s Risen’s turn to go under the microscope.
Risen, the first of several big-screen Jesus movies coming out this year, will be playing at a theatre near you just three weeks from now — and to whet our appetites, the studio has released several new clips from the film. Check ’em out below the jump.
Noah had an art show, and Exodus: Gods and Kings had an exhibition dedicated to its visual effects. Now A.D. The Bible Continues — which came out on DVD and Blu-Ray yesterday — has lent its costumes to a special display taking place in California.
Watch: The second trailer for Risen, starring Joseph Fiennes and Tom Felton as Roman soldiers and Cliff Curtis as Jesus
Four months ago, we got our first good look at Risen (formerly known as Clavius), the film that stars Joseph Fiennes and Tom Felton as a couple of Roman soldiers who investigate the disappearance of Jesus’ body. Now, today, with the film’s January 22 release less than five months away, we have a second, even longer, trailer, which consists almost entirely of new footage. Check it out below the jump.
Yesterday was the day when Eastern Orthodox Christians remember Gamaliel, the Jewish leader who defended the apostles before the Sanhedrin in Acts 5. So I thought it might be fun to take a quick look at how Gamaliel has been portrayed in film.
