Watch the trailer of "Son of God" - Release Date 28 February 2014

Son of God comes to theaters February 28, 2014. Now, the larger-than-life story of The New Testament gets a larger-than life treatment in the stand-alone feature SON OF GOD.

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. Portuguese actor Diogo Morgado portrays Jesus as the film spans from his humble birth through his teachings, crucifixion and ultimate resurrection. 

It marks the first motion picture about Jesus's life since Passion of the Christ, released ten years ago.
Produced by couple Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, the film includes both footage from the hit television series and never-before-released scenes and is set to hit theaters on Feb. 28.

Currently, it is screening with religious and business leaders, in an effort to raise more money to fund the film's distribution.

The film is directed by Christopher Spencer, who also directed the miniseries. Colin Swash, Nic Young and Richard Bedser, who wrote the script for the television series are back at work again here.

"Son of God" will be distributed via 20th Century Fox and is the first major motion picture from a large studio since Mel Gibson's "Passion of the Christ." It will hit theaters a month before "Noah," another highly anticipated Bible-based epic starring Russell Crowe and Emma Watson, which opens in theaters on March 28.

The History Channel miniseries averaged 11.7 million viewers, pulling in roughly 13.1 million viewers when it premiered in March 2013. It is currently playing in Hong Kong and will soon debut in the United Kingdom.
