Sumptuous costuming. Sweeping story. Production value by the barrelful. All of these we associate with the historical epic, and it’s what we’re expecting from this week’s Ben-Hur, a new take on the classic 1st century tale of betrayal, redemption, and sparkly chariots. This week’s gallery presents 24 Certified Fresh historical epics, historical as in nothing set within the past 100 years (so World War I and anything before is fair game).
