Producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey will bring the life of Jesus to theaters in February with their film Son of God. The theatrical trailer released this week, giving audiences a first glimpse of the movie.
Son of God, set to hit theaters Feb. 28, will include footage from the hit television series The Bible as well as new scenes.
"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," the movie's website says.
"Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado portrays Jesus as the film spans from His humble birth through His teachings, crucifixion and ultimate resurrection," it continues.
The Bible miniseries director Christopher Spencer directs the film, the first major motion picture about the life of Jesus since Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ, which released in 2004. Son of God will be distributed by 20th Century Fox.
