MAGNIFICENTLY EPIC FIRST TRAILER AND PHOTOS FOR NEW 'BEH HUR' WITH JACK HUSTON, RODRIGO SANTORO, MORGAN FREEMAN!

'BEN HUR' EPIC TRAILER
IS HERE WITH JACK HUSTON!
Now, here's something I've been wondering for a long time when it would finally arrive! First photos and trailer for this August biggest epic adventure BEN HUR with Jack Huston and Morgan Freeman!
A PRINCE AND A SLAVE
It follows Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston), a prince falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother Messala (Toby Kebbell), a Roman army officer. 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 plays his mentor, while Rodrigo Santoro is Jesus Christ! The story of Jesus Christ is told parallel to the one revolving around BEN HUR! As you can see from the first poster, the movie, based on Lew Wallace's classic novel and directed by Timur Bekmambetov, will include the glorious chariot races in the arena! What do you think? I personally think the movie is terribly miscast with zero star power in it!

  1. I will be off to the capital city, tomorrow, people, to see my editor, so I might be a bit late in responding to your comments!

  2. Apart from Morgan Freeman, I haven't heard of any of these actors. But who knows -- if the movie is a smash hit, maybe it will make them all stars!

    1. I highly doubt it will be a smash hit, Debs, especially not in August the cemetery of bad summer movies :) Especially with Kebbell who has zero star power and as the trailer shows, zero acting talent too :) Jack Huston ain't a bad actor, though, loved him in GREAT FIRE series, but he has zero charisma for leading roles. To think Hiddles was supposed to star here.....

  4. Don't think this will be a good remake. Not sure if Charlton Heston was a big name when he filmed Ben Hur, but I don't think this one will compare at all. I won't be watching because the chariot race looks to violent for the horses. Have a safe trip to the capital city.

  5. Ben Hur? Good luck, difficult to be compared to a masterpiece!

  6. I always wondered why Ben Hur was shown around Easter. Now it makes sense. (Yeah, I've never seen either the big epic or the original silent.)

  7. I think we're all of the same mind on this one today. It doesn't need to be made and if it is to be done, it should be done better.

    Have a safe journey darling and get those monies!!

      Thanks, dear, came back and safe. Hope you're having a nice St, Patrick's day, hope you noticed our shamrocks here :)

  8. I cannot imagine why we need a remake of this movie. This film will always be associated with Charlton Heston and it was an epic film. Enough said...

    4. We don't need another remake. Robocop, Oz, The Thing (wtf??), Point Break (really??), Spiderman (again and again and again) and Ghostbusters: The Search For More Money And We Give You Chicks have caused enough damage the way it is.

  9. Well, I do love Morgan Freeman, as do many, so that may be the only redeeming point to this film. However, the trailer failed to really pique my interest, so it's highly doubtful I'll spend time on watching this one.

  10. I'd rather see the original. This looks action-packed with great effects, but it doesn't appeal to me.
