Paramount Pictures have made public the first trailer and poster for Ben Hur, which arrives this summer.
Jack Huston plays the title character in this adaptation of Lew Wallace’s 1880 novel “Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ”. This is the third time the story has been brought to the screen. The most famous adaptation is the 1959 epic that starred Charlton Heston, and this one looks just as epic. Morgan Freeman also appears in the film, as does Toby Kebbell, Rodrigo Santoro, Nazanin Boniadi, and Pilou Asbæk.
Ben Hur will open on August 26th, 2016.
