| Filed under: Film FlickersMorgan Freeman

Racing, redemption, and Morgan Freeman!

That's what's promised in the new trailer for the upcoming sword-and-sandal epic Ben-Hur!

This will be the fourth film adaptation from Lew Wallace's 1880 historical adventure novel Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ.

And while it will be hard to compete with the 1959 Charlton Heston-led version that won 11 Oscars, this version has some serious Gladiator vibes to it — along with some badass chariot racing!

Helmed by Wanted director Timur Bekmambetov, the film stars Jack Huston as the titular prince, who is betrayed by his adopted brother (Toby Kebbell) and thrown into slavery — but years later returns to seek his revenge!

Ch-ch-check out the trailer (above) and go see Ben-Hur in theaters August 12, 2016.
