The Battleship Potemkin
is a 1925 Soviet silent film directed by Sergei Eisenstein and produced by Mosfilm. It presents a dramatised version of the Battleship Potemkin uprising that occurred in 1905 when the crew of a Russian battleship rebelled against their oppressive officers of the Tsarist regime. It has been called one of the most influential films of all time.

The Battleship Potemkin in The GladiatorEdit

In an alternate in which the Soviet Union won the Cold War, the original version of The Battleship Potemkin was a valuable propaganda tool for the USSR. However, most people who viewed it also saw the artistic value of the film, despite its age and its flaws.[1]

A new version was filmed in 2097. Annarita Crosetti and Gianfranco Mazzilli saw an Italian dubbed version on a date. Despite it being in color with an enhanced budget and better special effects, Gianfranco found the remake to be hollow propaganda and boring.[2]

Eduardo Caruso acknowledged that the film had been remade in the home timeline. The remake was not well-received in his world either, and people preferred to watch the original.[3]
