When the two civilizations clash, renowned warrior Achilles (Brad Pitt) emerges as the key to the Greeks’ victory or defeat over the Trojan Army, which is led by Troy’s noble champion, Prince Hector (Eric Bana), and protected by the city’s seemingly invincible walls.

The screen's biggest names embody an epic adventure in ancient Greece where the passion of two of literature's most notorious lovers, Paris, Prince of Troy (ORLANDO BLOOM) and Helen (DIANE KRUGER), Queen of Sparta, ignites a war that will devastate a civilization. When Paris spirits Helen away from her husband, King Menelaus (BRENDAN GLEESON), it is an insult that cannot be suffered. Familial pride dictates that an affront to Menelaus is an affront to his brother Agamemnon (BRIAN COX), powerful King of the Mycenaeans, who soon unites all the massive tribes of Greece to steal Helen back from Troy in defense of his brother's honor.Read More
