The film Asterix versus Caesar made in 1985 was based on this album and on Asterix the Legionary.

When Cacofinix the bard is taken to Rome as a present for Julius Caesar, Asterix and Obelix set out to rescue him, sailing with master salesman Ekonomikrisis, the Phoenician merchant.

How do our Gaulish friends come to end up training as gladiators? The next Games in the Circus Maximus are not quite what Caesar and the Roman public expect …

What the druids have to say about Asterix the Gladiator

The pirates, who now make their entry into the Asterix world, are not to be missed!

Asterix is a film enthusiast: while the gladiator training brings Stanley Kubrick's Spartacus to mind (whose star, Kirk Douglas, will make a notable appearance in Asterix and Obelix all at Sea), the chariot race recalls Ben Hur. Later on, the Asterix and Cleopatra album will draw on Mankiewicz's Cleopatra.

Little by little, without the authors realising it, and before gaining publishing success status, the series is creating waves. The magic is ready to roll.
