Ben-Hur, the Biblical epic that hits cinemas on 26th August, has just revealed a brand new action-packed trailer and poster art.
The film is directed by Timur Bekmambetov and stars Jack Huston, Morgan Freeman, Toby Kebbell, Nazanin Boniadi and Rodrigo Santoro.
Ben-Hur is the epic 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 is based on Lew Wallace’s timeless novel, Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ.
The original Ben-Hur, starring Charlton Heston is widely regarded as one of the greatest motion pictures of all time so this reimagining has a lot to live up to, but the trailer promises much.
