    audiences can easily see The Passion as a martyr’s story which is frequently showcased in high grossing Hollywood films. Whether it’s Katniss from “The Hunger Games”, King Aslan in “Narnia”, or the infamous Harry Potter, martyrdom seems to grab the attention and pocket books of today’s average movie goer.
