Though curiously, it’s not nearly as bloody as I had anticipated. Is this the full extent of the violence? For Neil Marshall, it’s all very tame, especially given the barbaric swords-and-ax period the film is set in. Anyways, Hulu has released a Red Band trailer for Neil Marshall’s “Centurion”. The film is scheduled for limited theatrical release on August 27 later this year, but you’ll be able to download it on VOD, Amazon, XBox Live, Playstation and Vudu on July 23rd if you can’t wait, or don’t think the film is going to come anywhere near your area.
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 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.
