Ben Hur

Released across the UK on Wednesday 7 September in 3D, this big-screen remake of William Wyler’s multi-Oscar winning 1959 epic and Fred Niblo’s equally esteemed 1926 silent version, has a high-class pedigree to live up to.

The making of the first two films has cemented their places in Hollywood lore, so will director Timur Bekmambetov (Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter), tackle them head on, or kneel in their presence? Was it wise to splash $100 million on a Roman-era epic when the genre has long been out of fashion?

Jack Huston, in the title role, has what seems an insurmountable task in taking on Charlton Heston and Ramon Novarro, as does Toby Kebbel in the old Stephen Boyd/Francis X. Bushman role of Messala. It will be showing in almost all UK cinemas. See the official Paramount website for more.
