Set in the first century C.E, Mary Magdalene is a new drama about controversial biblical character, friend and follower of Jesus ChristMary Magdalene

Garth Davis directs while Rooney MaraJoaquin Phoenix and Chiwetel Ejiofor star…

I don’t know that Phoenix as Jesus Christ feels like a perfect casting instinctually. However I’m very open to be proven wrong, especially since Phoenix is quite the talent.

Also, not that this movie will be as brutal as Mel Gibson’s The Passion of The Christ (2004) –  but I kind of don’t want to sign up to witness all that violence again. It’s a tough one since I want to watch the story of Mary Magdalene, sadly there’s just no telling her story without Jesus particularly because she’s with him till the very unfortunate end. What to do, what to do…

Sarah-Sofie Boussnina, Ariane Labed, Ryan Corr, Tahar Rahim and Lubna Azabal also star.

Mary Maggalene Release Dates: March 16th, 2018 (UK); March 30th, 2018 (US)…

In You Were Never Really Here, Joaquin Phoenix plays a war veteran whose attempt to save a young girl from a sex trafficking ring goes horribly wrong. Directed by Lynne Ramsay; Alessandro Nivola and Ekaterina Samsonov also star.

The sound / music in the first 45 seconds was quite challenging for my delicate ears; nevertheless, I’m interested in this movie. Phoenix is great and the film’s mood reminds me of one of my favourite Tom Hardy movies, Locke (2013)Also, the film’s synopsis brings to mind The Equalizer (2014) – except things probably didn’t go quite as terribly for Denzel Washington’s character.
