benhuresterYou are getting a sneak peek of the first images of the characters from the upcoming release of Paramount/MGM’s ‘Ben Hur’ directed by Timur Bekmambetov and produced by Mark Burnett and Roma Downey. This poster features Esther, a Jewish slave and love interest of Judah Ben-Hur in the film. She is a heroine, remarkably transformed by Jesus’ message of love and forgiveness. Esther is played by Iranian actress Nazanin Boniadi who scored the offer to play the female lead opposite Jack Huston who plays Judah Ben-Hur in the film. The role was initially set to be played by Israeli actress Gal Gadot before other film conflicts prevented her from signing on. You will not be disappointed in Boniadi’s portrayal. ‘Ben-Hur’ hits theaters August 19th 2016 nationwide. You don’t want to miss it! #BenHurMovie
