From IGN, here’s a new poster for Neil Marshall’s “Centurion”. The film already opened in the UK, and is scheduled for August 27, 2010 in the States according to IMDB.com. Marshall hasn’t exactly had a lot of luck with his theatrical releases here (“Doomsday” bombed), so you’re probably looking at a limited release before the film lands on DVD.
CENTURION is set during the war between Roman soldiers and Pict tribesmen during the 2nd century Roman conquest of Britain. Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds, 300) stars as Quintus Dias, Roman centurion and son of a legendary gladiator who leads a group of soldiers on a raid of a Pict camp to rescue a captured general (The Wire’s Dominic West). The son of the Pict leader is murdered during the raid, and the Romans find themselves hunted by a seemingly unstoppable group of the Pict’s most vicious and skilled warriors, led by a beautiful and deadly tracker (Olga Kurylenko from Quantum of Solace), who are hell bent on revenge.
Starring Dominic West, Olga Kurylenko, Noel Clarke, David Morrissey, JJ Feild, Axelle Carolyn, Riz Ahmed, Dave Legeno, Ulrich Thomsen, and directed by Neil Marshall.
And oh yeah, that Michael Fassbender guy is in it, too.
