Trailer of Mary Magdalene starring Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix

Mary Magdalene Movie - Rooney MaraThere’s a brand new trailer for Mary Magdalene, the upcoming fantasy drama movie starring Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix:

Plot synopsis:
“She is one of the most transformative yet misunderstood women in history, alternately vilified as a sinner and canonized as a saint. For the first time, the incredible story of Mary Magdalene is told through her own eyes. In the first century A.D., the free-spirited Mary (Rooney Mara) flees the marriage her family has arranged for her, finding refuge and a sense of purpose in a radical new movement led by the charismatic, rabble-rousing preacher Jesus (Joaquin Phoenix). The sole woman among his band of disciples, Mary defies the prejudices of a patriarchal society as she undergoes a profound spiritual awakening and finds herself at the center of an earth-shaking historical moment. Boldly challenging received wisdom, Mary Magdalene is a rapturous, moving account of a miraculous woman who risked everything to follow her faith.”

One Response - “Trailer of Mary Magdalene starring Rooney Mara and Joaquin Phoenix”

  1. Virginia

    The movie of Mary Magdalene should be taken out and burn and thrown down to hell where it belongs. Now really I would be happy if my Lord Jesus Christ did marry Mary Magdalen and had children. But what I can not believe is that you are saying that she flees and arraigned marriage and finding refuge and a sense of purpose in a radical new movement led by the charismatic, rabble rousing preacher Jesus. Give me a break the first time Jesus saw Mary Magdalene is when the crowd was going to stone her and he stood between her and the crowd and asks what this had done. And they told him that they caught her sleeping with a married man and by God’s law she should be stone to death. But Jesus pick up a stone and turn to the crowd and said, “Whoever has not sin let them case the first stone.” And no one could do it. And Jesus went over to Mary and said, “ who is here to judge you. Go and sin no more.” And yes she did. If you want to make a movie like this then tell the truth and not say that she fled an arraigned marriage and found refuge in a radical new movement.

    1. It was by no why a radical new movement. If it was don’ You think Jesus would have more people following him wherever he went instead of just his disciples?

    2. There is no why In those days that Jesus was a charismatic, rabble rousing preacher. If he was then at his first preaching he would have been arrested and and and hung on a cross.

    If you people are going to make a movie like this. Then do it right. Or don’t do it at all. And I will pray that Jesus Christ forgive you when you die and stand before him because he said, “ I AM THE WHY AND THE TRUTH AND THE LIGHT AND ONLY THOUGH ME WILL YOU ENTER MY FATHERS KINGDOM.”

    Think about that. And pray for his forgiveness before you die. Because if you wait and you stand BEFORE HIM. It will be to late
