Movie Preview: “Mary Magdalene” gets her Movie Moment

It looks serious-minded, sober. And if it aims for controversy, it’s soft-peddled in the film’s first trailer.

Aside from, oh, Jesus played by Joaquin Phoenix and Chiwetel Ejiofor playing St. Peter.

Rooney Mara has the title role, a “fallen woman” saved and redeemed by Jesus, and in a “Da Vinci Code” spin, picked by him to “lead” his flock/church after his death.

Look for “Mary Magdelene” right around Easter — March 30.
