Paramount Pictures and MGM are gearing up to release the reboot of "Ben-Hur" in August, and in a new faith trailer, viewers are given a glimpse into the impact Jesus Christ made on the fictional character Ben-Hur while an exclusive song by for King & Country plays in the background.
"Ben-Hur" is the epic story of Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston), a prince falsely accused of treason by his own adopted brother Messala (Toby Kebell), who is a Roman army officer. He was removed from his position and was separated from his family and Esther (Nazanin Boniadi), the woman he loves, as he was exiled to become a slave.
But after years of traveling on sea and a sudden shipwreck, Ben Hur encountered Ilderim (Morgan Freeman), who later on becomes his mentor. He tells Ben Hur to take revenge against his brother through a chariot race instead of killing him directly. He then prepares him for the monumental race, seen on the trailer, which is going to be a deadly one. more >>

Following the death of cultural icon Muhammad Ali, Franklin Graham is sharing his personal memories of the boxing champion who visited his father, evangelist Billy Graham, at the family's home in North Carolina. "The world has lost a champion. Muhammad Ali was considered by many as the greatest boxer of all time. His career began during a difficult period in our country with the racial tensions of the 1960s and the Vietnam War.
His outspoken positions caused him to be both loved and hated by some," Graham wrote in a Facebook post about Ali, who died on June 3 at age 74, following a bout of respiratory illness, connected to complications with Parkinson's disease, which he battled for decades.
"I had the privilege of meeting him on several occasions, and he visited at my parents' home in Montreat, North Carolina. Muhammad Ali's father brought him to visit my father Billy Graham because he was concerned over Ali's faith in Islam and was afraid that his son had been led astray," Franklin Graham revealed. more >>
