Neil Marshall’s “Centurion” didn’t do a whole lot of business over in its native UK when it opened, and chances are, it won’t do much when Magnet Releasing puts int into a limited number of theaters August 27th, but you know what? Who cares. I’m still going to dig the crap out of this movie. Neil Marshall + really sharp objects + barbaric setting = guaranteed awesomeness. Check out the film’s latest Stateside trailer via Apple.
CENTURION is set during the war between Roman soldiers and Pict tribesmen during the 2nd century Roman conquest of Britain. Michael Fassbender 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 (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), and hell bent on revenge.
Starring Michael Fassbender, Dominic West, Olga Kurylenko, Noel Clarke, David Morrissey, JJ Feild, Axelle Carolyn, Riz Ahmed, Dave Legeno, Ulrich Thomsen, and directed by Neil Marshall.
