Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Oliver Stone's first choice for the role of King Philip was Liam Neeson, who turned it down.
  • The biography of Alexander by Oxford University professor Robin Lane Fox was an original inspiration and source of information for director Oliver Stone. As an historical advisor, Professor Fox didn't get an on screen credit; his price for giving his advice was to be allowed to take a place at the head of what is one of the largest cavalry charges ever filmed. Professor Fox was used to riding around the English countryside, but gladly dressed up as a Macedonean cavalry officer to live his dream of charging for Alexander.
  • Movie Goof (miscellaneous): Many scenes were re-ordered in the "Final Cut." For example, Alexander's childhood is seen in flashback, not at the beginning, in chronological order. However, the end credits are the same, so the list of actors "in order of appearance" is inaccurate.
  • Movie Goof (factual errors): SPOILER: Nearchus and Antigonus are shown to pursue Pausanias, murderer of Philip and then spear him to death. This is inaccurate. In fact, Nearchus, along with Ptolemy, would not have been present at Philip's murder.
