Crowe’s auction took place on Saturday night, and fans couldn’t get enough of his Gladiator merchandise. The breastplate he wore at the end of the movie fetched $96,000, while a chariot from the movie took in $50,000. Two swords from the movie combined for around $70,000, and a pair of leather wrist cuffs worn by Crowe in the movie went for $24,500.

Of course, Gladiator wasn’t the only movie represented at the auction. Items from Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World also went for high prices, including a violin from the movie which auctioned off for $104,000 and his costume for the movie sold for $88,000.

All together, Crowe raised around $2.8 million through the auction from the sale of 226 items.

No word on if Crowe ever asked the auction audience if they were entertained.
