Final Trailer: Bekmambetov’s “Ben-Hur”

Ahead of the film’s release on August 19th, Paramount Pictures and MGM have posted a new and likely final full trailer for their Timur Bekmambetov-directed remake of “Ben-Hur”. John Ridley and Keith Clarke penned the script for this new adaptation of the Lew Wallace novel.

Jack Huston stars as the prince falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother Messala (Toby Kebbell), an officer in the Roman army. Stripped of his title and forced into slavery, he returns to his homeland years later to seek revenge, and instead finds redemption. Morgan Freeman, Rodrigo Santoro, Ayelet Zorer, Nazanin Boniadi and Sofia Black-D’Elia also star.
