Now, the larger-than-life story of The New Testament gets a larger-than-life treatment in the stand-alone feature Son of God. The life story of Jesus is told from his humble birth through his teachings, crucifixion and ultimate resurrection.
Told with the scope and scale of an action epic, the film features powerful performances, exotic locales, dazzling visual effects and a rich orchestral score from Oscar-winner Hans Zimmer. Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado portrays Jesus.
It marks the first motion picture about Jesus’ life since Passion of the Christ, released ten years ago. And that movie was a runaway hit in spite of continual efforts to discredit the film, and its producer Mel Gibson.
Gearing up for a February 28 debut, there are reports of entire theaters being bought up by churches. The “Inspired by” album re-enters the retail chart at #20. View the trailer here.
