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.
Over a three-month period, over twenty-seven thousand component pieces of armor were made.
What am I going to do with you? You simply won't... die. Are we so different, you and I? You take life when you have to... as I do.
Maximus: I have only one more life to take. Then it is done.
Commodus: Then take it now.
Commodus: They tell me your son...
Commodus: ...squealed like a ...
When Commodus has Maximus taken away to be executed, no "official" reason is given to the guards taking him away, or to the army at large as an explanation for the change in command. And no "rumors" of why the general was killed is mentioned later by anybody. Even after they learn of his survival and former soldiers talk to Maximus in the Colosseum.
Therefore, Maximus would have been considered "murdered" as soon as the execution happened. Anyone who knew of his murder, short of the corrupt few who were chosen to kill Maximus, would have tried to learn why. And given how loyal the army was to Maximus, they would have taken control and removed Commodus from power almost immediately.
Both the Dreamworks & Universal logos are altered to appear gold in color so they match the opening theme of Maximus walking through a wheatfield.
