Risen: The Greatest Story Ever Told Through the Eyes of a Skeptical, Roman Centurion

Risen, a new movie, premiering in theaters this Friday [Feb. 19th] depicts Clavius, a veteran, Roman Centurion, who is instructed by Pontius Pilate to investigate the rumors of Jesus having risen from the dead. Clavius is told to find the body of Yeshua [Jesus of Nazareth] in order to disprove and silence rampant speculation about the crucified rabbi. From the movies' promotional YouTube account:
This February, witness one of the most important events in human history through the eyes of a nonbeliever. Risen is a depiction of events surrounding Christ's missing body after his crucifixion.
Typically, Hollywood has little to offer Christians beyond mockery and derision. Risen appears to be an exception. Here is the movies' website. Below is a trailer.
