The Best Movies About Greek Mythology

List Criteria: Movies about myths and Greek mythology.

For us mere mortals, mythology and the world of the gods has been a fascinating subject for thousands of years. Tragic love stories between a mortal and an immortal forever kept apart, heroic battles between the forces of good and evil, the influence of religious belief in different gods that controlled the ancient Greek cultures – these and other ideas are the basis for many of the best movies about Greek mythology.

The movies featured on this list all discuss Greek mythology in one way or another – whether it’s through a historical approach to how life was affected by the belief in gods who controlled the destiny of mortals, or by taking a purely fictional approach to the battle between good and evil and the love stories that emerged as a result.
 
This list contains the best Greek mythology movies including: Thor, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Elysium, Clash of the Titans, Alexander, Beowulf, Mighty Aphrodite, Hercules in New York, Jason and the Argonauts, and The Trojan Woman.
