R | | Action, Adventure, Drama
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.
Hugh Jackman was considered for the role of Maximus.
The beating heart of Rome is not the marble of the Senate, it's the sand of the Colosseum. He'll bring them death and they will love him for it.
After Maximus defeats Tigris of Gaul, the left side of his neck is covered in blood. However, when Comodos approaches him, there is no sign of the blood.
Both the Dreamworks & Universal logos are altered to appear gold in color so they match the opening theme of Maximus walking through a wheatfield.
