Judah Ben-Hur, a prince falsely accused of treason by his adopted brother, returns to his homeland after years at sea to seek revenge, but instead finds redemption.

In Roman-occupied Jerusalem, Prince Judah Ben-Hur is falsely accused of treason by his adoptive brother, army officer Messala. He’s stripped of his title, separated from Esther, the woman he loves, and forced into years of slavery at sea. During his eventful exile, Ben-Hur encounters Sheikh Ilderim, who trains him as a charioteer. Eventually, he returns home bent on revenge. But by this time his life has been changed by encounters with Jesus Christ.

Epic historical action drama starring Jack Huston and Morgan Freeman. A new take on the classic story, based on the 1880 novel by Lew Wallace which is best known for inspiring the Oscar-winning 1959 film starring Charlton Heston.

Watch out for the breathtaking, state-of-the-art chariot race!
