JudahBenHurImageYou 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 Judah-Ben Hur (Jack Huston), a Jewish prince in Roman-occupied Jerusalem who is betrayed and falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother Messala and is later sentenced to a life of slavery. After escaping slavery, the story takes a breathtaking turn after a series of encounters with Jesus of Nazareth, who transforms not only his outlook, but also his faith leading him to discover grace, mercy and redemption. He eventually takes on the Roman Empire by avenging his brother in an epic chariot race for the ages. We promise you will be holding your breath through the entire final scene. ‘Ben-Hur’ hits theaters August 19th 2016 nationwide. You don’t want to miss it! #BenHurMovie
