Asterix at the Olympic Games

While out hunting, Asterix and Obelix run across a local Roman sports champion named Gluteus Maximus who is about to participate in the Olympic Games. Deciding they too shall compete, the Gauls head to Greece (much to the consternation of the Greeks and the Romans) and foul-play and a doping scandal soon emerge. Gerard Depardieu returns as the rotund Obelix, while Clovis Cornillac takes over Asterix duties from Christian Clavier.
