Ben-Hur coming to Blu-Ray and Digital HD for the holidays

Ben-Hur coming to Blu-Ray and Digital HD for the holidays October 21, 2016


Now that Timur Bekmambetov’s Ben-Hur has come and gone from theatres, it’s time for the film to come out on home video. And so, today, it was announced that Ben-Hur will come to iTunes and other digital streaming services on November 29, while the DVD and Blu-Ray release will follow two weeks later on December 13.

Neither Amazon nor iTunes have listed any bonus features yet, but the online retailer Christian Cinema has a list — and it indicates that the discs sold through Christian stores will have bonus features that the regular DVDs and Blu-Rays won’t have.

Here, according to Christian Cinema, are the regular bonus features:

  • Ben Hur: The Legacy
  • The Epic Cast
  • A Tale For Our Times
  • The Chariot Race
  • Deleted and Extended Scenes
  • Music Videos

And here are the “CBA Exclusives” (CBA = Christian Booksellers Association):

  • A Story of Christ
  • Executive Producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey Discuss Ben-Hur with Pastor Rick Warren
  • Ben-Hur Conversation with Bishop Kenneth C. Ulmer

I will update this post if I find any more information about the Blu-Ray release.

October 25 update: Paramount has released the cover art for the upcoming discs.

The DVD will have the feature film:


The Blu-Ray combo pack will have the feature film and over an hour of bonus content on the Blu-Ray disc, plus the feature film on the DVD:


And the “Exclusive” Blu-Ray combo pack will have the same two discs as the regular Blu-Ray combo pack, plus a second DVD with extra bonus content:
