While back in the 1950s when the Ben-Hur starring Charlton Heston and Stephen Boyd had homosexual subtext written specifically for them deliberately, keeping in the mind the opposition to the concept of homosexuality back in those days, many tabloids have reported that the same gay sub-text was not that necessary in the upcoming 2016 version.
The director even put forth light in the mishaps that occurred on the set during the shooting where a stuntman was thrown out from the chariot and run over by the wheel of another chariot; he was later hospitalized and kept under intensive care.
While even with all the not so positive responses, Ben-Hur is set to make you feel a little on the edge every time with the chariot racing the naval battle scenes which are so realistic and vividly thrilling that they are set to keep all your adrenaline rush at its peak with the building excitement.
This perfect amalgamation of betrayal, brotherly rivalry and Christian forgiveness is set to make you leave as a better person after leaving the movie theatre, watching the movie.
So what are you waiting for? Get your chariots set for a thrilling experience of a lifetime. Let us know about your thoughts and views on the movie. Stay hooked for more updates and news.
