An adaptation of Homer's great epic, the film follows the assault on Troy by the united Greek forces and chronicles the fates of the men involved.
WILHELM SCREAM: Greek soldiers fall to Trojan arrows outside the city walls.
Men are haunted by the vastness of eternity. And so we ask ourselves: will our actions echo across the centuries? Will strangers hear our names long after we are gone, and wonder who we were, how bravely we fought, how fiercely we loved?
In the Director's Cut, during the burning of Troy, a temple burns just after a statue falls forward and breaks. A crew member in a motorcycle helmet is on the roof, running across the top right-hand corner.
Director's Cut runs 198 minutes and features extended and deleted scenes, enhancing plot and character development, as well as featuring more sex and violence.
