Watch the trailer for “Risen”, starring Tom Felton

The trailer for Tom Felton’s upcoming Biblical epic, Risen, is now available! Previously titled Clavius, the film tells the story of the resurrection of Jesus through the eyes of a non-believing Roman military tribune named Clavius (Joseph Fiennes).

Tom Felton plays Clavius’s aide, Lucius (a name that may be somewhat amusing to Potter fans). Together, Clavius and Lucius are tasked by Pontius Pilate (Peter Firth) with locating Jesus’s missing body in order to stop an uprising in Jerusalem.

You can also check out a video interview with Tom that we previously shared, where he discusses his character and why he took the role despite potential religious controversy.

Risen is directed by Kevin Reynolds. It is scheduled for US release on January 22, 2016.

What do you think of the trailer? Are you excited to see Tom in Risen?

I have been a fan of Harry since 2000, a fan of MuggleNet since 2005, and a MuggleNet team member since 2013. I believe in the power of stories to bring people together, and nothing does that quite like Harry Potter. I’m an annoyingly proud Canadian and live in Toronto.
