It was often shorter than the military version. The use of the gladius is actually the source of the word "gladiator".
In Latin, Gladius was also a common word for penis. Equally, the word vagina originally meant "sheath".
Ridley Scott and cinematographer John Mathieson used multiple cameras filming at various frame rates and a forty-five-degree shutter, creating stop-motion effects in the action sequences, similar to techniques used for the battle sequences of Saving Private Ryan In an example of "translation convention", all characters in the movie speak modern languages: English for the most part, but also Italian Maximus' son , German the Barbarian chief before the battle and even Zulu the ancient Germanic war chant.
Russell Crowe even wanted to go one step further, and speak his lines imitating Antonio Banderas ' accent, in order to show Maximus' non-Italic origins, but Ridley Scott disapproved the idea.
Various historians have tried to find proof that the awning in the Colosseum really was used as a cooling system. Coins and other images of the amphitheater have been found showing a canopy system.
One of those designs appears to be the inspiration for the canopy system seen in this movie. Lou Ferrigno was originally cast as Tigris of Gaul, but was replaced during production by Sven-Ole Thorsen , who had been lobbying hard for the part.
Sven-Ole Thorsen not only played Tigris the Gaul, but doubled as one of the spectators during that same battle. Though dozens of versions of the script were written, the original one hundred thirty page draft, dated October by David Franzoni , is "different in almost every detail from the finished movie.
Cohen in his book "Screen Plays". The real Lucius Verus, who is portrayed as a young kid in the movie, was the son of Marcus Aurelius' adopted brother, and died eight years into his reign.
Commodus' selection as Caesar was made when he was five-years-old, and coins were made with his likeness on it. It was Michael Winner who persuaded Oliver Reed to audition for this movie.
While working on their last collaboration, Parting Shots , Reed complained, "I can't believe it, Ridley Scott wants me to go and read for him.
But I'm a star. You're not a fucking star. You're out of work, and you're not old enough to retire, so you need a third act to your career.
Obviously, they think if you're working with me, you can't be as drunk as people think you are. So go to Ridley and read. End of story, Oliver, and if he wants you to read twice, read twice.
The character of Maximus is fictional, although in some respects, he resembles the historical figures Narcissus Commodus' real-life murderer, and the character's name in the first draft of the screenplay , Spartacus who led a significant slave revolt , Cincinnatus a farmer, who became dictator, saved Rome from invasion, then resigned his six-month appointment after fifteen days , and Marcus Nonius Macrinus a trusted General, Consul in A.
Silver was the name of the horse ridden by the Lone Ranger, and Trigger was the name of the horse ridden by Roy Rogers.
This remains their prison while in Rome. This Ludus meaning gladiator school or training facility was a real place, and its ruins can be seen today, just east of the Colosseum in Rome.
It was connected to the underground warrens beneath the arena of the Colosseum by a tunnel. Hugh Jackman was considered for the role of Maximus.
Ridley Scott claimed that the opening moments of Maximus pondering a bird before the battle was simply improvised between he and Russell Crowe on a day in which they needed to film a moment introducing Maximus before the battle, but they had no scripted dialogue.
Temperatures in the gladiator arena would frequently top one hundred degrees Fahrenheit thirty-eight degrees Celsius. This movie started shooting without a locked screenplay in place.
According to Russell Crowe , the initial draft was so bad that when he was approached for the lead role, not even the producer wanted to send him a copy, afraid that he "[wouldn't] respond to it".
Crowe was instead urged to meet with director Ridley Scott first. Unbeknowst to the producer, Crowe had already obtained a copy of the script and disliked it, but was won over by Scott's take on the project, as well as countless re-writes.
Russell Crowe 's depiction of Maximus has been commemorated in Australia on an official stamp. Jude Law was considered for the role of Commodus.
After finishing his college education, David Franzoni spent a year travelling around the world.
During his adventures, he would run into networks of international travellers, who would get together and trade books that they had read on the road.
Screenwriter William Nicholson added the aspects of the movie in which Maximus discusses the afterlife, seeking to make the character more accessible to audiences.
While Cicero Tommy Flanagan is waiting to talk to Lucilla Connie Nielsen outside the Colosseum, he can be seen standing next to the giant foot of a statue.
The foot also appears in a deleted scene with Proximo Oliver Reed. Although the rest of the statue isn't seen, given the size of the foot, the statue itself is most likely the Colossus of Nero, a ninety-eight-foot thirty meter bronze statue that Emperor Nero had erected in his own likeness.
It is interesting to know that the statue did not always stand next to the Colosseum. It had been moved there years after its creation, and was probably the reason for the stadium to be nicknamed "Colosseum" which was officially known as the Flavian Amphitheater.
Years later, the real emperor Commodus had the statue changed to himself as Hercules by replacing the head, but it was restored after his death. The statue itself was most likely destroyed and pillaged during earthquakes or Barbarian invasions, with only the pedestal remaining.
The rest of the statue isn't seen in the movie, probably because no accurate visual depictions of the statue have survived.
Initially, Russell Crowe had no interest in reading the script, as he was in the midst of working on The Insider , and was completely focused on his portrayal of Jeffrey Wigand.
He was eventually persuaded otherwise by Insider director Michael Mann , who passed him the script, and told him he ought "to take this Ridley Scott thing a bit more seriously.
Twenty-four chariots were built for the movie, although only six appear on-screen. This movie is credited with sparking a revival in big historical epics.
In the the years after its release, we have been given movies like Troy , King Arthur , Alexander , , Noah , Kingdom of Heaven , Robin Hood , and Exodus: Gods and Kings , the last three having been directed by Ridley Scott.
Contrary to rumor, Enya didn't record any music for the soundtrack of this movie. The song simply sounds like something she would have recorded.
The song, and in fact much of the soundtrack, was composed and sung by Lisa Gerrard. Shot over a period of eighteen weeks.
The first Best Picture Oscar winner to not also win for either writing or directing in fifty-one years. This last occurred with All the King's Men It would occur again just two years later with Chicago Antonio Banderas was also considered for the role of Maximus.
The suit was dismissed. Maximus' Spanish heritage meshes interestingly with his choice of arms. As a General riding with the cavalry of the Felix Legion, in the opening battle he wields a sword known as a "Spatha", popular among the continental tribes, especially in Spain and southern Gaul.
As a Gladiator, he uses a sword similar to the spatha in appearance, but shorter and broader. This weapon is known as the "Gladius Hispaniensis", and was adopted by the Roman infantry after Scipio's invasion of the Iberian Peninsula in the second century B.
Roman infantry wore the gladius on the right side. This, facilitated by the short blade length, allowed the legionary to draw his weapon on the same side as his sword arm.
Cross-drawing would be hindered by the scutum the large rectangular shield while in formation. With two weeks to go before filming, the actors and actresses were still complaining of problems with the script.
William Nicholson was brought to Shepperton Studios to make Maximus a more sensitive character, re-working his friendship with Juba, and developing the afterlife thread.
Nicholson went back to David Franzoni 's original script, and reinstated a lot of the scenes that John Logan had taken out. For the main protagonist Maximus, Ridley Scott wanted a fresh face for the role, and Russell Crowe was cast.
Ridley Scott claimed that Commodus watching Lucius sleep was not pedophilia, but rather meant to show Lucilia's fear of Commodus.
Commodus tells Lucius the tale of Emperor Claudius who was betrayed by his own family, as an analogy to his own situation. Jacobi played Senator Gracchus in this movie.
Amongst their responsibilities, were to composite real tigers filmed on bluescreen into the fight sequences, and adding smoke trails and extending the flight paths of the opening battle's flaming arrows.
They also used two thousand live actors and actresses to create a CGI crowd of about thirty-five thousand people. One of their major hurdles was to create a digital body double for the recently deceased Oliver Reed.
A small section of the background noise about five seconds , just before the battle in Germania, was taken from Zulu Heard was part of the Zulu warrior's taunting chant also used just before battle.
David Franzoni was given a three-picture deal with DreamWorks, as writer and co-producer, on the strength of his work on Steven Spielberg 's Amistad One of his initial pitches was for this movie.
Jennifer Lopez auditioned for the role of Lucilla. In a interview while promoting All the Money in the World , Christopher Plummer was asked if he had ever been approached by Ridley Scott before.
The opening battle scenes in the forests of Germania were shot in three weeks in the Bourne Woods, near Farnham, Surrey, England. When Ridley Scott learned that the Forestry Commission planned to remove the forest, he convinced them to allow the battle scene to be shot there, and burn it down.
This movie was shot in chronological order. The prop snow in the opening battle scene and aftermath was created by using little pieces of rolled up paper.
At least some of the Roman cavalry in the opening battle were real soldiers: this movie employed twenty members of the British Army's King's Troop, Royal Horse Artillery.
King's Troop's horse-drawn ceremonial guns sometimes have to travel at high speed despite each weighing over a tonne and having no brakes, so the soldiers are required to be very skilled horse-riders.
In Malta, a replica of about one-third of Rome's Colosseum was built, to a height of fifty-two feet sixteen meters , mostly from plaster and plywood the other two-thirds and remaining height were added digitally.
The reverse side of the complex supplied a rich assortment of Ancient Roman street furniture, colonnades, gates, statuary, and marketplaces for other filming requirements.
The complex was serviced by tented "costume villages" that had changing rooms, storage, armorers, and other facilities.
The rest of the Colosseum was created by using computer graphics imagery, using set-design blueprints and textures referenced from live-action, and rendered in three layers, to provide lighting flexibility for compositing in Flame and Inferno software.
The Spanish dubbers claimed that "Trujillo doesn't combine the 'qualities' to be cradle of the gladiator. One hundred suits of steel armor and five hundred fifty suits in polyurethane were made by Rod Vass and his company Armordillo.
The unique sprayed-polyurethane system was developed by Armordillo, and pioneered for this production. The Mill used 2, actors and actresses to create a computer generated crowd of 35, virtual actors and actresses that had to look believable and react to fight scenes.
They accomplished this by shooting actors and actresses at different angles, giving various performances, and then mapping them onto cards, with motion-capture tools used to track their movements for three-dimensional compositing.
He called out to him "Maximus"! It wasn't until the end of that scene when Maximus reveals his identity to Commodus. Until that moment, no one knew his name was "Maximus".
Russell Crowe played Superman's father Jor El. Djimon Hounsou played Shazam the wizard. Joaquin Phoenix played Joker, a dark motivation for Batman.
Djimon Hounsou also played King Ricou in Aquaman. A study by the Medical University of Vienna and the University of Bern examined gladiator bones, and found out that gladiators were mostly vegetarian.
Yet in the movie, they are shown eating meat. Although many costumes in the film were made of leather, Joaquin Phoenix was only given synthetic leather in order to accommodate his strict vegan lifestyle.
Russell Crowe later admitted that he initially felt unworthy of all the praise and the Oscar for Best Actor that he got for this movie.
After seeing the completed movie, he felt it was a "director's film", and that the Oscar should have gone to director Ridley Scott instead. All of the props, sets, and costumes were manufactured by crew members, due to high costs and unavailability of the items.
Oliver Reed was asked by an insurance agent if he still drank. He replied, "Only at parties. Kirk Douglas saw this movie when it was first released and liked it, but said it was nowhere nearly as noble as Spartacus Russell Crowe 's Best Actor Oscar winning performance was the only nominee in the category in a Best Picture nominee that year.
While reading the script one morning two weeks into production, Joaquin Phoenix thought it made sense that Commodus would grow physically larger as his belief in his own power as Emperor increased.
Phoenix also kept a sword in his hotel room. To construct the arena where Maximus has his first fights, the crew used basic materials and local building techniques to manufacture the thirty-thousand-seat mud brick arena.
Historically speaking, Gladiators were owned and trained by Lanistae and kept at a Ludus. Neither elements were incorporated into the movie, and the character Proximo was never mentioned to be a Lanista by trade.
Over six weeks, production members scouted various locations within the extent of the Roman Empire before its collapse, including Italy, France, North Africa, and England.
When first announced, Arnold Schwarzenegger was being pursued to play Proximo. Despite winning the Oscar for best visual effects, critic Roger Ebert spoke in an interview with Charlie Rose that this movie had "bad special effects.
During a "surprisingly brief" pitch meeting with Steven Spielberg , David Franzoni told the Writers Guild of America that the director "really had three basic questions.
My gladiator movie, it was about ancient Roman gladiators-not American, Japanese, whatever else?
Yes, I said. Taking place in the ancient Colosseum? Fighting with swords and animals to the death and such? Great, let's make the movie. This movie was disliked by critic Roger Ebert.
In his review, he described it as looking "muddy, fuzzy, and indistinct", and criticized the writing for its "bitter, morose, and dull characters.
The totem carried by one of the Germanic tribesmen in the opening scene is a Zardoz-mask from the film Zardoz painted grey. Only the second DVD to sport a 6.
Russel Crowe's character is often refers to as a Spaniard, that would not have been accurate. At that time people who lived in Hispana were light complected and had red hair.
The Gauls were considered to be a fierce race and when the Romans conquered them the men were given the option of fighting in the Army or becoming Gladiators.
The bust of the leader was originally painted, and not the bare carved stone in the tent, and around Rome throughout the movie.
The paint just flaked off over time. This is the only movie to feature Oliver Reed and Richard Harris. The first fight in the Colosseum is called the "Battle of Carthage", to commemorate the Roman victory over the barbarian horde of the Punian commander Hannibal.
Coincidentally, Ridley Scott 's next movie was Hannibal One of the first DVDs to be released in the U. Over a three-month period, over 27, component pieces of armor were made.
Trujillo, what Maximus describes to the Emperor as the place where his home is in the hills, is in present-day Spain, southwest of Madrid.
This movie is a fictional account of ancient Roman history. Although historical consultants were hired to ensure some level of historic accuracy, many documented facts were purposely ignored for the sake of storytelling, and the film has received criticism for its anachronistic depiction of period clothing, art, weaponry and warfare tactics.
At least one historian quit during the production over the creative license taken by the makers, whereas another declined to be credited.
Richard Harris was considered for the part of Proximo. Russell Crowe claimed that the shooting script was highly incomplete and many scenes and lines of dialogue were improvised between he and Ridley Scott during filming.
For example, Crowe suggested that Maximus share a motto "Strength and Honor" with his fellow soldiers. In Crowe's pitch the line was in Latin, Scott determined that it sounded better in English.
During the opening battle sequences, the barbarian chanting is the same as the warrior chanting in Zulu Connie Nielsen and Tommy Flanagan share the same birth date, July 3, Sven-Ole Thorsen was also in Conan the Barbarian opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger , whose character Conan became a slave and a gladiator after the murder of his parents.
The costumes of warriors, especially the helmets, were made in Peshawar by handicrafts men from fiberglass instead of any heavy metal. In dealing with the death a succession of Marcus Aurelius, this film covers much the same ground as The Fall of the Roman Empire.
In that film, Commodus was played by Christopher Plummer. Russell Crowe worked with Plummer just the previous year in The Insider. This last occurred with The Greatest Show on Earth This movie shares its title with Gladiator , but it has no connection to that movie, which takes place in the world of illegal underground boxing.
In preparation for filming, Ridley Scott spent several months developing storyboards to develop the framework of the plot. Tom Sizemore auditioned for the part of Maximus.
Curran plays Marcus Corvinus. Is this interesting? In that movie, Van Damme played a mercenary out to avenge his family. Blessed is best known for playing the Roman emperor Augustus in the acclaimed series I, Claudius Augustus was the grandfather of emperor Claudius, played by Sir Derek Jacobi , who portrayed Senator Gracchus in this movie.
Ridley Scott resisted any suggestion that Maximus and Lucilla Connie Nielsen should have a sexual relationship, because it would decrease his need to be with his murdered wife and son.
