TRAILER FOR THE ANTICIPATED MARY MAGDALENE IS REVEALED AHEAD OF A 22 MARCH 2018 RELEASE

30 November 2017

Mary Magdalene, the second feature film from Garth Davis, the Australian director of Lion will be released across the country on 22 March 2018. Transmission Films was today delighted to reveal the trailer for the highly anticipated film, which stars Rooney Mara as Mary Magdalene and Joaquin Phoenix as Jesus. The film is produced by See-Saw Films, the company behind Lion, The King’s Speech and Top of the Lake, and Porchlight Films (Animal Kingdom).

Set in the Holy Land in the first century, Mary Magdalene is the story of a young woman who leaves her small fishing village and family to join a new movement. Inspired by its charismatic leader, Jesus of Nazareth, and his teachings, Mary sets out with the disciples on the journey to Jerusalem, where she finds herself at the centre of the founding story of Christianity. Mary Magdalene brings a unique and fascinating character to the fore and places her at heart of the greatest origin story of all.
