Oliver Stone's "Alexander" is based on the true story of one of history's most luminous and influential leaders, Alexander the Great (Colin Farrell), a man who had conquered 90% of the known world at the age of 25.
Alexander led his virtually invincible Greek, Macedonian, and later Eastern armies through 22,000 miles of sieges and conquests in just eight years, and by the time of his death at the age of 32, had forged an empire unlike any the world had ever seen.
The film chronicles Alexander's path to becoming a living legend, from a youth fueled by dreams of myth, glory and adventure to his lonely and mysterious death as ruler of a vast Empire.
