The new Ben-Hur adaptation gets an Epic featurette



Directed by Timur Bekmambetov, the new adaptation of Ben-Hur stars Jack Huston, Toby Kebbell, Morgan Freeman, Rodrigo Santoro, Nazanin Boniadi, Ayelet Zorer and Sofia Black-D’Elia.

Ben-Hur is the epic story of Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston), a prince falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother Messala (Toby Kebbell), an officer in the Roman army. Stripped of his title, separated from his family and the woman he loves (Nazanin Boniadi), Judah is forced into slavery. After years at sea, Judah returns to his homeland to seek revenge, but finds redemption.

The film is based on Lew Wallace’s timeless novel, “Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ.

Ben-Hur is in UK cinemas on 26th August 2016.




  1. You call this a “featurette”??? Not just that, but “Epic!”

    This is nothing but another promotional trailer. Nearly exactly like the existing ones.

    What happened to terminology that we called everything a featurette or a “teaser”, when they’re all just trailers.


    • Hi, it is a featurette as it features the cast and crew talking about the film along with some footage.

      If it was just footage from the film then it would indeed be a trailer or TV spot. It is also titled Epic hence the title of this post.

    • Looks like a feature to me! Albeit a mini one. Usually with a trailer the cast don’t talk to the audience.
