Here's the first official look at Jack Huston in the title role. Ben-Hur follows the story of a prince in Roman-occupied Jerusalem who is betrayed by his adopted brother Messala (Toby Kebbel). He loses everything, spends five years in the galley of a Roman slave ship and takes the people who wronged him in a chariot race.
Also starring Nazanin Boniadi as Esther, Rodrigo Santoro as Jesus, Pilou Asbaek as Pontius Pilate, and Morgan Freeman as Ilderim, who trains Ben-Hur.
Directed by Timur Bekmambetov and slated to come out some time this year.
