20th Century Fox has released the official trailer for producer Mark Burnett and Roma Downey's "Son of God".

Starring Diogo Morgado as Jesus, the film includes both footage from the hit History Channel series "The Bible" and never-before-released scenes.

This is the first time a major motion picture from a studio like 20th Century Fox has focused on Jesus since the controversial but successful Passion of the Christ from Mel Gibson.  

The film is reported to be currently screening with religious and business leaders, in an effort to raise more money to fund the film's distribution. It is set to hit theaters on Feb. 28, 2014.
