The Passion of the Christ

After hours of horrible torture, Jesus (James Caviezel) dies while upon the cross. After He is removed from the cross, He is lowered to Mary, and the screen fades black for almost a minute. Just when you are about to get ready to leave, a dim light shines along a rock wall and there is a rumbling sound as the camera pans to one side to reveal a slab with a cloth-wrapped body on it. The cloth 'deflates' as though a balloon has been released and the camera pulls back and shows a close-up of Jesus' profile. Jesus then stands and moves off camera and, as He does, you get a fleeting closeup of light coming through the nail hole on the back of one of His hands.
Thanks, Marc S, Rev B, and others who send in spoilers that I couldn't use! (Rev B recommends that you still read the Book, though.)
