Let’s go back this weekend, to the first century AD, to the wood-sided battleships and dusty circus tracks of the Roman Empire, to witness the story of Judah Ben-Hur. Betrayed by his brother, cast into slavery, robbed of everyone who meant anything in his life, Ben-Hur, played by Jack Huston, rises from the most hopeless of circumstances to stand against his brother and, perhaps, win back his life.
Timur Bekmambetov directs this soaring interpretation of Lew Wallace’s 19th century novel of the same name for Paramount Pictures. Starring Huston, Toby Kebbell, Morgan Freeman, Rodrigo Santoro, Nazanin Boniadi, Ayelet Zurer, and Sofia Black D’Elia.
Paramount has a full lineup of features set for the coming months. Check them out here.
