I've returned to the forum....I haven't been able to log in for a year.....but managed it this time!

El Cid asked if any members of the forum have seen "Ben-Hur" on the big screen.....I saw it at Loew's in NYC when it was first released and four times since, in various theaters, but not since 1972. In a word this film on the big screen is unforgettable....it has been my favorite film since 1959.

I've seen the trailer for the new film slated to open August 16th....looks like a CGI wet dream, at least from the bit I saw. I should not be hasty in prejudging the film. However, the director is the same auteur who brought us "Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Slayer" which brought me to laugh so hard I cried. Again, no rush to judgment, but William Wyler is dead.

Great to have you back, General Gordon! Sorry you had problems logging back on, it shouldn't be an issue. I hope there will be no more problems for your account.

Is there really another remake of this on the way?

Trailer can be seen in the last post of this thread: mgm-is-rebooting-ben-hur-t435.html

Watch it, if you dare.

Well having watched the trailer it... doesn't necessarily look bad so much as it looks like the kind of film that would have been better off not being a remake of a well known film (which itself was a remake of an earlier film) that just kind of automatically stacks the deck against it.

Funny how William Wyler was an assistant director on the silent BEN-HUR and then remade it the sound version... I believe he and Chuck joked about this during filming, how one of the assistant directors working for Wyler would then direct the next remake.

I have just bounced upon something called 'HAIL CAESAR' -- but I am not sure if it is a sort of remake of Ben-Hur. However, it bears some references to BEN-HUR. Has anyone watched this?

This is the link I am referring to: http://www.denofgeek.com/us/movies/hail ... ence-guide

Hail Caesar is a comedy about a guy playing in epic movies, or something like it. Unfortunately, George Clooney is the leading man. So, no thanks.

Wasn't there an animated remake of this with Chuck reprising the role of Ben-Hur?

I'd say Heston in general. Lots of cool stuff!
