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 production company offered the Roman sets to the Maltese authorities as the basis of a theme park, but the authorities dithered in their reply, so most of the set was struck.
Strength and honor.
When the senators stand at the top of the senate stairs to welcome Commodus and Lucilla from the Germanic campaign, some shots show a dark background (curtains or drapes covering the inside of the senate). However, in a few close shots of Sen. Gracchus, the background drapes are parted, showing the blue sky behind the actors. That means the room is not the entrance to a large cavernous room like the senate (as shown in the next few scenes), but a set standing-in for the senate entrance.
Both the Dreamworks & Universal logos are altered to appear gold in color so they match the opening theme of Maximus walking through a wheatfield.
