WATCH: New Ben-Hur trailer released

July 26th, 2016 by bash Comments


A new trailer for Timur Bekmambetov’s adaptation of the Lew Wallace novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ has been unveiled by Paramount Pictures and MGM.

The book was made into a film back in 1959 by director William Wyler with Charlton Heston in the starring role.

Ben-Hur tells the story of Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston), a prince falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother Messala (Toby Kebbell), an officer in the Roman army.

Stripped of his title, separated from his family and the woman he loves (Nazanin Boniadi), Judah is forced into slavery. After years at sea, Judah returns to his homeland to seek revenge, but finds redemption.

The film also stars Morgan Freeman and opens in theaters on August 19.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
