From Greeks and Romans, Spartans and Trojans, and gods and legends, swords and sandals movies always deliver some serious action. There's a lot more going on during these epic battles and acts of heroism than you may have noticed, however. If you look closely, as many fans online have done, there are all kinds of amazing weapon and combat details. For example, in the award-winning hit Gladiator, Maximus adds a new emblem to his breastplate after every one of his Colosseum fights. In the gritty and genre-defining 300, the Spartans do a rather clever thing while they recuperate by using the Persians' arrows as firewood. There are even some behind-the-scenes details! While filming Troy, Eric Bana and Brad Pitt vowed to pay each other a small fee for every accidental hit they made on the other while practicing. Read on to see who paid out the most.
