Fourteen months after it premiered at the Sundance film festival — and just in time for Easter — we finally have a trailer for Last Days in the Desert, which stars Ewan McGregor as both Jesus and the Devil in a story set sometime around the end of Jesus’ forty days of temptation in the wilderness. Check it out below the jump.

Here is the trailer:

The film is written and directed by Rodrigo Garcia, and in addition to McGregor it also stars Ciaran Hinds, Ayelet Zurer and Tye Sheridan. The director of photography is Emmanuel Lubezki, who has won the Oscar for cinematography three times in the last three years, for his work on Gravity, Birdman and The Revenant.

The film is currently scheduled to come out May 13, or six weeks from tomorrow.
