Why Did The Movie Ben-Hur BOMBED At The Box Office?


Reader according to my timeline another movie with white people playing the role of Africans bombs at the movie theaters on its opening weekend. The remake of Ben Hur bombed at the box office or so Internet says. Idiots should have known better than to try and redo Charleton Heston's Ben Hur. This movie cost Hollywood $100 million to make and only pulled in $11 million.

I saw the trailer for this movie for the first time yesterday. My first thought was, Why? Why make a remake of that movie. The original was fine as is, it didn’t need an update for a new audience.

"...analysts believe that 'Ben-Hur' relied too heavily on out-dated forms of outreach. In 2004, 'The Passion of the Christ' established a template for marketing to values audiences by earning the buy-in of mega-pastors. In the ensuing decade, however, that kind of endorsement may not be enough."
