When a Roman general is betrayed and his family murdered by an emperor's corrupt son, he comes to Rome as a gladiator to seek revenge.
The first fight in the Collosseum is called the 'Battle of Carthage', to commemorate the Roman victory over the barbarian horde of the Punian commander Hannibal. Coincidentally, Ridley Scott's next movie would be Hannibal (2001).

Proximo tells the trader he'll give him "2000 for the men and 4 for the beasts", but he then says "that's 5000 total for an old friend". It means discount. He didn't think 2000+4000=5000.
Both the Dreamworks & Universal logos are altered to appear gold in color so they match the opening theme of Maximus walking through a wheatfield.
