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.
For the crowd scenes in the Colosseum, in addition to the real-life extras and the digital ones, four hundred cardboard cut-outs of spectators were also used.

Maximus's wife and son hold their hands up to their foreheads, as if to shield their eyes from the sun, to look into the distance. However, the hands aren't placed at an angle to actually provide shade to the eyes; there is no shadow below their hands.
Both the Dreamworks & Universal logos are altered to appear gold in color so they match the opening theme of Maximus walking through a wheatfield.
