Ben-Hur Trailer

"Give them a shame they will understand… To start a revolution to free us all." Paramount Pictures has unveiled one more 60-sec trailer (see the last trailer + a featurette) for the upcoming remake of Ben-Hur, directed by Timur Bekmambetov, starring Jack Huston as the new Judah Ben-Hur. The full cast includes Nazanin Boniadi, Ayelet Zurer, Sofia Black-D'Elia, Haluk Bilginer, Pilou Asbæk, Marwan Kenzari, Rodrigo Santoro, Moises Arias, Toby Kebbell and Morgan Freeman. The more I see from this, the more I don't like it - such an unnecessary and CGI-bloated remake, yet they're really pushing it like it's this fantastic movie that we should all be excited for. Come on! There are some cool aspects - Freeman with dreads, Kebbell being a badass, Huston in a lead role - but the rest of it just looks so bad. Not for me.

Here's the latest trailer for Timur Bekmambetov's Ben-Hur remake, direct from Paramount's YouTube:

You can see the first official trailer for Ben-Hur here, plus this other featurette for even more footage.

Ben-Hur is the epic story of Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston of "Boardwalk Empire"), 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. This new Ben-Hur is directed by Russian filmmaker Timur Bekmambetov, of The Arena, Night Watch and Day Watch, Wanted and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. The adaptation by Keith R. Clarke & John Ridley of Lew Wallace's original novel, Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ, also stars Morgan Freeman and Rodrigo Santoro (300). Paramount will release Ben-Hur late this summer on August 19th this summer. Anyone interested?

Seems like Jack Huston should be getting better work after his excellent performances on Boardwalk Empire...

An improvement by dropping the terrible music from the last trailer at least. Still up for some Roman action.

Yea, I tend to agree with you about this one, Alex. It will be interesting to see how this does when I comes out. From your comments and most below it looks like it does't stand much of a chance.

Morgan Freeman looks so ridiculous with those damn dreads on his head I just can't take this movie seriously. And don't even get me started on the director. Even tho I did kinda liked "Wanted".

Night watch was a promising low budget movie, but day watch was dull and painful to sit through. And don't get me started on Abraham Lincoln vampire killer... i couldn't even watch it on a long haul flight.
