Judah Ben-Hur, a prince falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother, an officer in the Roman army, returns to his homeland after years at sea to seek revenge, but finds redemption.
The film was originally set for release on February 26, 2016. In October 2015 it was pushed back to August 12, 2016.
Hate, anger, fear. Those are lies they use to turn you against each other. When you set aside the hate they force you to carry, that's when you know love is our true nature.
In the opening scene Judah and Messala are racing horses with saddles having stirrups which weren't introduced into Europe for another 700 or 800 years.
The end credits for the director, producer and department heads are animated to look like they fly across the race track, kicking up dust as if they were horse-drawn chariots.
