Racing, redemption, and Morgan Freeman!
That's what's promised in the new trailer for the upcoming sword-and-sandal epic Ben-Hur!

Stacey Dash Claims She & Morgan Freeman Feel The Same Way About Black History Month — & Even Shares A Video To Support Her Story!
Stacey Dash is not backing down!
But the Clueless alum believes there's one famous figure who has her back… Morgan Freeman!
"When I spoke out on Fox News and on my blog about the need to get rid of BET and Black History Month, all the same usual Twitter haters came out of the woodwork to troll me and say all sorts of disgusting things about me."
But the scandalized star wanted to point out to everyone who was sh*tting on her that she allegedly isn't the only one who thinks this.
She claimed that the amazing actor feels the same way she does, and that he should also be sharing some of the backlash, adding:
"Well, if you're going to call me ignorant, stupid, and an Uncle Tom, you need to be intellectually honest and also call out Morgan Freeman."
And the FOX News panelist even supplied a video she hopes will support her statement, in which the Shawshank Redemption actor discusses Black History Month with the late Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes, sharing:
"What's that you say? You didn't realize that Morgan Freeman agrees with me that having a Black History Month is actually racist and a part of the problem in healing race relations in America? Well, listen to this interview from years back with Mike Wallace on 60 Minutes."

George Clooney Weighs In On The Oscars' Lack Of Diversity Controversy — Says 'We're Moving In The Wrong Direction'!
After the Oscars revealed all 20 of its actor nominees were white, everyone from Jada Pinkett Smith to David Oyelowo to even the President of The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts & Sciences have voiced frustrations about the lack of diversity in the prestigious institution.
Now, George Clooney, the unofficial mayor of Hollywood, is adding his two cents — and he agrees that "we are moving in the wrong direction."
Speaking to Variety, the Oscar winner said he thinks the lack of minority nominees is largely due to the little options minority actors have playing roles in "quality" films!
Morgan Freeman may have the sexiest voice on two sides of the Atlantic!
On Monday's The Late Late Show, James Corden informed the Shawshank Redemption star of a UK poll which had named him the sexiest American voice. Well, we don't disagree with that one!
But is it the sort of sexiness the Oscar winner can teach??
James' other guest Zooey Deschanel was able to pick up some tips to improve her "husky, sexy voice" — but the throat exercises didn't work so well for the comedian.
And whatever Tim Roth said didn't even sound like English. LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out Freeman do his best to teach Corden and co. how to have a sexier voice (below)!
