The 25 Best Movies Set in the Ancient World According to Yardbarker

"From the very beginning, Hollywood has been fascinated with ancient cultures, repeatedly drawing from biblical stories and cultures of Greece and Rome for inspiration. Given how foundational these tales have been to Western civilization, it makes sense that the movie industry would want to tap into the audience's awareness of them. Time and again — notably during the 1950s, '60s, and early 2000s — antiquity has flourished in popular cinema. Often, films set in antiquity are epics, which lend them a power and a gravitas that matches the weightiness of their subject, so it is worth looking at the best the genre has to offer." - yardbarker.com
