Ain't It Cool News posted a copy of the trailer for The Passion—which is the new film written and directed by Mel Gibson (well, Mel did the screenplay anyway.) This film is geared at detailing the final hours of Jesus as well as his crucifixion. It'll be interesting to see how this film holds up for a number of reasons.
First, the film was shot using only Latin dialect—this I'm sure will affect mass appeal. Second, hard core religious movies tend not to do well w/the general moving going public. I know Mel is a devote Catholic, so it'll be interesting to see how the Catholic Church responds to this movie.
This movie has sparked my interest since I first saw details appear on AICN and from what I've seen of the trailer, the movie appeals to me even more. All religious/spirtual beliefs put aside, this movie looks like it's going to be a well told story. I always enjoy a well told story.
