Paramount has dropped the first trailer for Ben-Hur, the remake it’s doing with MGM that stars Jack Huston.

The Timur Bekmambetov-helmed pic tells the epic story of Judah Ben-Hur (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. Based on Lew Wallace’s novel, Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ, the film also stars Morgan Freeman and Rodrigo Santoro.

Ben-Hur is set to bow on August 12. Check out the trailer above and let us know what you think.
