Trivia

When the gladiators, including Maximus, arrive in Rome, they are seen entering a sort of "holding area" with the words "LUDUS MAGNUS" written above the gate. This remains their prison while in Rome. This Ludus (meaning gladiator school or training ... ...


Quotes

Maximus: You knew Marcus Aurelius?
Proximo: I didn't say I knew him, I said he touched me on the shoulder once!


Goofs

Maximus is called "The Spaniard". The term "Spaniard" comes from a 14th Century Old French word, but this obviously falls under translation convention. In Latin, Maximus would have been called "Hispanus", the word from where "Spanish", "Spaniard" and "Hispanic" all come from.


Crazy Credits

Both the Dreamworks & Universal logos are altered to appear gold in color so they match the opening theme of Maximus walking through a wheatfield.


Alternate Versions

There are a whole slew of unused shots and sequences compiled into a short film. Some of those sequences are:

  • A few new shots of Commodus riding to meet his father along with his entourage.
  • New footage of Maximus riding to flank the Germanians.
  • A whole Alternate Sequence of the Death of Maximus's Wife and Son. In this version we see him ride through many different scenes and he overlooks the farm seeing his son getting trampled by horses and his wife screaming. He screams and he reaches forward with his open hand. He pulls it back and there is blood. He cries out loud in pain over the death of his family.
  • New footage of the Arabs and the Gladiator Training Grounds.
  • Commodus not-so-warm reception in Rome. We see people graffiting his name on walls.
  • New footage of the first Gladiator Chain-Gang battle. We see an Alternate Take of Hagen impaling the man on a spike protruding from a wall. We also see that after the battle is over, a huge man wearing a mask walks out and kills the wounded.
  • Hagan in a bath accompained by exotic women.
  • Germanian Ground Battle footage of Maximus fighting of many Germanians!
