New ‘Risen’ photos show Jesus crucified, Tom Felton and Joseph Fiennes

Risen movie poster Joseph FiennesColumbia Pictures and LD Entertainment in Association with AFFIRM Films release new images from Risen –the epic retelling of the Resurrection, starring Joseph Fiennes, Tom Felton, Peter Firth and Cliff Curtis. Check out the new images below.

SYNOPSIS: RISEN is the epic biblical story of the Resurrection and the weeks that followed, as seen through the eyes of an unbelieving Clavius (Joseph Fiennes), a high-ranking Roman military tribune. Clavius and his aide, Lucius (Tom Felton), are instructed by Pontius Pilate to oversee the execution of Jesus of Nazareth, and to ensure that his radical followers don’t steal the body and claim resurrection. Despite the tomb’s protection by Roman guards, the body goes missing within days. Clavius is charged to locate the missing body in order to prevent an imminent uprising in Jerusalem. Only by finding the remains of Jesus can they disprove the rumors of a risen Messiah, allowing Rome to retain control of Judea. Along Clavius’ mission, however, his doubts of such a supernatural occurrence begin to fade as he encounters the apostles and other followers while piecing together the mysterious events that unfolded after the Crucifixion.

CAST INCLUDES: Joseph Fiennes (SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE, HERCULES), Tom Felton (HARRY POTTER), Peter Firth (THE HUNT FOR RED OCTOBER, MI-5), and Cliff Curtis (Fear the Walking Dead).
