It's brother versus brother in the latest Ben-Hur trailer

It won't be long before another BEN-HUR is in the marketplace - the fourth such adaptation of Lew Wallace's 1880 novel but the first projected in 3-D. Timur Bekmambetov is in the director's chair this time, marking his first feature since the disappointing ABRAHAM LINCOLN: VAMPIRE HUNTER, and he has Jack Huston and Toby Kebbell has his leads, which typically isn't a bad place to start. 

Paramount has released a new trailer for this reimagining of the source material, and it certainly doesn't look half-bad. Visually, it's going to be able to do things that the 1959 couldn't, even if it did capture an Academy Award for Best Picture for the overall package, and with a strong story foundation to begin with, BEN-HUR could be a surprising bit of fun. I mean, Morgan Freeman is involved, so it's at least got that going for it. 

I wouldn't expect another Best Picture nominee here, but an entertaining summer romp? Not out of the realm of possibility. 

BEN-HUR opens in theaters on August 19.

I'm assuming it's not a remake, rather another adaptation of the novel. It's not the same.

Jack Huston and Morgan Freeman

Hell yes this is a theater trip for me. It's a great story deserving of another adaptation.
