Ben-Hur Trailer 2

A classic Hollywood film is getting a new “remake” as Paramount Pictures releases a new trailer for the epic movie Ben-Hur. View trailer below.

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. Based on Lew Wallace’s timeless novel, Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ. Also starring Morgan Freeman and Rodrigo Santoro.

Similar to what I said about the previous trailer, I feel unimpressed with this movie. How could Hollywood attempt to remake a classic such as Ben-Hur. I have a feeling that this movie is going to be big flop at the summer box office. I do like the cast and the updated visuals, but I still have doubts. Thus, my expectations for this Ben-Hur are low. Who knows….this movie could surprise me. But I doubt it.

Ben-Hur races into theaters on August 19th, 2016
