(ANSA) – Rome, May 15 – Ridley Scott’s Oscar-winning Hollywood blockbuster ‘The Gladiator’ will be screened at the Colosseum on June 6 for a charity event that will almost certainly be attended by lead actor Russell Crowe.
The soundtrack will be played live by the Italian cinema orchestra in synchrony with the dialogues. The cineconcert will be repeated twice at Circo Massimo on June 8 and 9, but to a larger audience.
The 200 member orchestra and choir will be conducted by Justin Freer, with singer Lisa Gerrard who won the Golden Globe for the title song ”Now we are free” and composer Hans Zimmer in attendance.

Ridley Scott strikes again with Gladiator, one of the most successful and most-loved films ever made. The movie boasted huge spectacle, epic storytelling and brutal action sequences, and featured Russell Crowe at the peak of his powers. Cinema fans were gripped by the journey taken by Crowe’s Roman general Maximus, who is betrayed after the son of Emperor Marcus kills his father and takes the throne, and the film is just as powerful and impressive now as it was back in 2000

Ridley Scott has revealed how he would bring Maximus back from the dead in a sequel to Gladiator. In the director’s Oscar-winning epic, Russell Crowe’s brave General Maximus survives his betrayal and attempted murder at the hands of Joaquin Phoenix’s scheming Commodus and is metaphorically resurrected as a gladiatorial warrior who rises to become even more popular than the emperor. Maximus goes on to seek revenge against Commodus and ultimately dies in the arena, but not before triumphing over the man who killed his family and destroyed his life.

Spoilers if you haven’t seen GLADIATOR, which, by the way, isn’t too far off from celebrating its twentieth anniversary. How’s that for making you feel old. Back in 2000, Ridley Scott’s historical epic told the story of Maximus (Russell Crowe), a Roman General who found himself reduced to slavery when Commodus (Joaquin Phoenix), the power hungry son of Emperor Marcus Aurelius (Richard Harris), betrayed him and seized control of Rome by murdering his own father. The film was a huge success at the time and even took home a few prestigious awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor at the 73rd Academy Awards.

There’s a tried and tested approach to filmmaking. A writer writes a script, which a producer approves, amasses money for, and then hires a director to gather a crew and actors to shoot. It’s simple really. But for Gladiator, Ridley Scott took a different approach. In fact, Russell Crowe has now admitted that when they begun filming on the 2000 epic, only a paltry number of pages had actually been written.

The Australian actor made this admission to BBC Radio 1, revealing that on the very first days of production they were around 90 pages behind the amount required. to this day, for this reason, Russell Crowe seems stunned that the film went on to win Best Picture. In the interview, Crowe remarked:
