First Trailer for Neil Marshall's Centurion
02.19.10 by BJSprecher
Director Neil Marshall (Doomsday) wrapped principal photography on his latest movie, Centurion, back in March 2009, and now the first trailer has finally been released. Described by Marshall as a "Scottish-Roman Western," Centurion speculates on the fate of the legendary 2nd-Century Ninth Legion, a fighting force of 3000 Roman warriors that supposedly disappeared without a trace after questing to eliminate the savage Picts from Britain.
After the Ninth are set upon by the Picts in a brutal ambush, only seven Legionnaires survive. Far from Roman territory and hopelessly outnumbered, the remains of the Ninth struggle to survive against an enemy they don't fully understand. Michael Fassbender, Dominic West, and Olga Kurylenko star.
A North American release date for Centurion has not been announced yet, but it is expected to open in March or April.
