Based on the original '60s French comic books by René Goscinny, Asterix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatra is the big-budget sequel to the 1999 box-office hit Astérix and Obélix vs. Caesar. Empress Cléopâtre (Monica Bellucci) makes a wager with Julius Caesar (played by writer/director Alain Chabat) that her people can build a beautiful palace in three months. She chooses architect Numerobis (Jamel Debbouze) for the project, which must be completed in time or he will be fed to the crocodiles. Numerobis travels to Gaul to get help from the superpowered Panoramix (Claude Rich) and the warriors Astérix (Christian Clavier) and Obélix (Gérard Depardieu), along with their faithful pet Dogmatix. They use their magic potion to make the Egyptian slave-labor population into superheroes, thereby building the palace in no time. Meanwhile, the angry architect Amonbofis (Gérard Darmon) and Julius Caesar don't want to see them succeed. At the time of its release, Astérix & Obelix: Mission Cleopatre was the most expensive French film ever made, with a budget of $50 million.
