Ben-Hur is released on September 7, and we’ve got an exclusive first look at some of the locations used in the making of the movie. As well as Matera in Italy, production also took place at the Cinecittà Studios where the 1959 original was shot.

Stars Jack Huston and Toby Kebbell are joined by Russian director Timur Bekmambetov as they talk us through the production process on the film.

We also get to see more of the real sets used as well as more of the climactic chariot race that was such a memorable highlight of the Charlton Heston.

Ben-Hur also stars Morgan Freeman, Nazanin Boniadi and Rodrigo Santoro, and is Bekmambetov’s latest English-language film after Wanted and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.
