These wonderful costumes were photographed at Universal Studios Hollywood on April 13 and 14, 2009.


  1. nice gladiator costume but why just have an inspired outfit when you could replicate the WHOLE thing. only thing similar to the poster is the chest plate................. why bother

    1. The costume on the poster isn't the costume they went for. He wears many different sets of armor throughout the film. This is the most notable.

  2. I was there in the arena (one of the pretorians) arround the fight between maximus and ceaser ... in July 1999.. it was very hot ... iwill never forget this wonderful experience!! :)
