<i>Ben-Hur</i>

Agamemnon Films Goodtimes Entertainment Tundra Productions

In news that should come as a surprise to no one, the new Ben-Hur didn't live up to the original. William Wyler's biblical epic, shot in Ultra Panavision and starring Charlton Heston, won a record-setting 11 Oscars (a feat since matched by Titanic and The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King) and made beaucoup bucks. It's a sweeping, sometimes overstated saga, and very much the kind of old-school classic everyone should experience at least once. Bonus fact: Ben-Hur premiered at the Egyptian in 1959, making this a homecoming.
