November. 15, 2017 – An exclusive first-look teaser trailer released today for the thrilling new film Paul, Apostle of Christ, which brings to vivid life on screen the epic story of the man who went from persecutor of the church to its most powerful and important proponent.

“Our ‘first-look’ teaser shows both the dramatic heart and biblical authenticity of Paul, Apostle of Christ,” Director and Screenwriter Andrew Hyatt said. “Each aspect of Paul’s life is based on what we know from the Bible, and we set that true story in the perilous world of Rome in the time of Nero’s persecution of Christians. It’s a captivating, emotional drama that brings the Bible to life.”

Watch the Teaser Trailer for Paul, Apostle of Christ:

Paul, Apostle of Christ stars Jim Caviezel (The Passion of the Christ), James Faulkner (Game of Thrones), Olivier Martinez (S.W.A.T.), Joanne Whalley (A.D. The Bible Continues) and John Lynch (The Secret Garden).

“Audiences of Paul, Apostle of Christ will experience a story true to what we know of Paul’s life and true to the Gospel of love he shared and lived,” Berden said. “It offers a gripping account of what the early Christian community faced in Rome simply trying to practice their faith with the threat of imprisonment and death always looming.”

In Paul, Apostle of Christ, Paul suffers alone in a Roman prison, awaiting his execution under Emperor Nero. Mauritius, the ambitious prison prefect, can hardly see what threat this broken man poses. Once he was Saul of Tarsus, the high-ranking and brutal killer of Christians. Now his faith rattles Rome. At great risk, Luke the Physician visits the aged Paul to comfort and tend to him—and to question, to transcribe and to smuggle out Paul’s letters to the growing community of believers. Amid Nero’s inhuman persecution, these men and women will spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and change the world.

AFFIRM Films, a Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) company, in association with Giving Films, presents an ODB production in association with Mandalay Pictures. Filmed in Malta, Paul, Apostle of Christ is produced by David Zelon (Soul Surfer) and T.J. Berden (Full of Grace). Executive Producers are Rick Jackson, Harrison Powell and Eric Groth.

Paul, Apostle of Christ premieres in theaters across North America on Easter Wednesday, March 28, 2018.
