Arriving in theatres in Australia and around the world, the 2016 remake of the classic Charlton Heston movie Ben Hur isn’t winning fans in droves. But if you want to, you can grab the original from Google Play Movies for just $4.99.
With a Rotten Tomatoes score of 29% rotten, compared to the originals 88% fresh, the original Ben Hur is looking like the much better version – it even sits in the top 250 movies list on IMDB. The movie is long, but well worth watching for a very young Charlton Heston acting his heart out and picking up the Best Actor in a Leading Role Academy Award.
The movie is a part of the Hot Deals of the Week that Google runs in Google Play Movies every week. There’s a few deals in there including Groundhog Day, The Expendables and Mad Max just to name a few.
Our pick of this bunch is the original Ben Hur for a measley $4.99 in HD, if you’re looking for a good night in, grab it now from Google Play.
