While looking at the dailies, Ridley Scott noticed that Joaquin Phoenix was gaining weight. Scott spoke to the line producer about it, who then went to Phoenix and told him, "Ridley says you're fat.
I thought it was the right thing to do. I'm the Emperor of Rome, why would I not look a little more debauched? In the Colosseum scenes, only the bottom two decks are actually filled with people.
The other thousands of people are computer animated or are cardboard cut-outs. The real-life Commodus was born to a mother who was rumored to have either slept with a Gladiator or had bathed in the blood of one.
Many took the myth as legend, believing that such led to the resulting "Gladiator Emperor". In the original drafts of the script, the name of the main character was not Maximus, but Narcissus, the name of the man who killed Commodus in real life.
Sir Richard Harris would frequently ignore any newly re-written scenes, as he couldn't be bothered to relearn his lines. During the opening battle, we see Roman soldiers marching to meet the barbarians in open combat with their pilas javelins in hand as if they were spears.
In reality, they were thrown at the enemy before the two sides would meet. Pila plural for pilum were too fragile to be used as spears, because the main tip was designed to break and bend after contact, to disallow the enemy to throw them back at the legionnaires.
Franzoni later discussed the idea with Steven Spielberg during their work on Amistad , saying that he envisioned Commodus as being something like Ted Turner , in the way he combined politics and entertainment to establish a base of influence.
The short sword used by the Roman army, the Gladius Hispaniensis, is seen being used by many gladiators in the movie. The version used in the arena in the movie is accurate as depicted.
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.

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.

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.

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".

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.
