50 Movies Set in Ancient Times

"The magic of movies lies in their ability to transport you to any world, real or imaginary, for a brief window of time. With our desires as a voyeuristic audience, it's fascinating to see ancient lands and people replicated to the best of artistic and filmmaking ability on screen and in different genres. While these films may not always be historically accurate representations (many films in ancient worlds feature the fantasy and mythology of the era), and they often take great artistic liberties, it's still interesting to see artists blend fact and fiction to render time periods such as ancient Greece, the Roman Empire, prehistoric eras, and biblical times. Eras otherwise lost to the sands of time can be resurrected to the big screen."
