Easter is six weeks away so none of these titles will be coming out between now and then.  I expect Ben Hur out in the next year or so.

I could see Paramount putting Ten Commandments out next year. It's too late for a announcement for this year.

"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

Ten Commandments will be 55 next year, so probably then.

Rumor I heard on Ben Hur was Easter 2011.  As with most titles on the studio grid its subject to change.
