Movie Description(Click Here To Hide)
Maximus is a powerful Roman general, loved by the people and the aging Emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Before his death, the Emperor chooses Maximus to be his heir over his own son, Commodus, and a power struggle leaves Maximus and his family condemned to death. The powerful general is unable to save his family, and his loss of will allows him to get captured and put into the Gladiator games until he dies. The only desire that fuels him now is the chance to rise to the top so that he will be able to look into the eyes of the man who will feel his revenge.

Russell Crowe's kids are ''flipping out'' because he is making a movie with Emma Watson.

The 'Gladiator' star's sons Charles, eight, and Tennyson, five, are very impressed that the actress has joined the cast of his forthcoming movie 'Noah' because they are big fans of the 'Harry Potter' film series, in which she played Hermione Granger,

He tweeted: ''My kids are flipping out that I'm going to work with Hermione.''

Russell - who is married to singer-and-actress Danielle Spencer - has previously treated his children to a 'Harry Potter' studio tour in London, England, and says they impressed their guide with their intelligent reasoning.

Referring to the houses which the Hogwarts students are sorted into in the 'Harry Potter' stories, he tweeted: ''Harry Potter tour, guide assumed my boys would be gryffendor,no way they say,Ravenclaw,why? they are the smart kids and none of them die!

''when they clicked that a Raven is a Crow they were even more assured of their choice (sic)''

'Noah' - which is directed by Darren Aronofsky - sees Russell portray the Biblical ark builder, while Emma will play Ila, the love interest of his older son Shem (Douglas Booth).

The film is scheduled for release in 2014.
