Paramount Pictures and MGM have released the new full trailer for its upcoming “Ben-Hur” remake along with a featurette on the chariot race seen in the film.
Timur Bekmambetov helms the epic tale based on Lew Wallace’s iconic novel. Jack Huston plays Judah Ben-Hur, 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. Morgan Freeman, Rodrigo Santoro, Ayelet Zorer and Sofia Black-D’Elia also star and the film opens August 19th.
