Risen stars Joseph Fiennes as a Roman soldier who goes looking for the body of Jesus after it vanishes from its tomb. Fiennes calls the film “an extraordinary murder mystery, a detective story” in a new featurette that was posted today, and something of that quest for answers is reflected in a new clip that went online today, too.
Here is the featurette, which has soundbites from director Kevin Reynolds and actors Fiennes (Clavius), Tom Felton (Lucius) and Stephen Hagan (Bartholomew):

The film opens in theatres across North America next week, on February 19.
February 12 update: An embeddable version of the clip is now available:
