Since they’re apparently all gone, it’s safe to assume that the production team will also put in hundreds of extras to simulate a screaming crowd. If the photos prove anything, there’s definitely room for everyone.

That Paramount and Universal decided to go with a real, life-size coliseum (rather than creating a CGI backdrop) for its most important scenes also suggests that the studio is confident about the project and the promising script.
