Bring on the Peeps and the Caddbury Eggs! It's already Easter at Walgreens, but it's also Easter at the box office with a new movie with a very different take on the crucifixion. The film is called Risen. It’s the Easter story, but told this time through the eyes of a Roman General.  He's investigating the death of Jesus. Did jesus actually rise from the dead? Or was his body simply stolen?  It plays out at first, almost like a crime drama.  A sort of religious X-Files. And it's fascinating. In the film, Jesus is played beautifully by actor Cliff Curtis. We scored the Colorado exclusive with him.
