A brand new trailer for Neil Marshall‘s (Doomsday, The Descent) historical epic titled Centurion has been released. This new trailer is of the Red Band variety, meaning it aims to sell you on the movie by showing off all the bloody violence and other naughty goodies we adults all love so much.
The movie features 300 co-stars Dominic West and Michael Fassbender. West plays captured General Virilus, while Fassbender plays Quintus Dias, a survivor of the ambush who is trapped deep within the enemy’s boundaries. Also starring is Hitman and Quantum of Solace leading lady Olga Kurylenko, who will be a Pict warrior whose tongue was removed by the Romans after they killed her entire family.
Head on over to the other side to watch the new Red Band trailer for Centurion and take a peek at the poster. And just in case you’re not familiar with the term, Red Band means unrated, and not so safe for children and work environments!
AD 117. The Roman Empire stretches from Egypt to Spain , and East as far as the Black Sea . But in northern Britain , the relentless onslaught of conquest has ground to a halt in face of the guerrilla tactics of an elusive enemy: the savage and terrifying tribes known as the Picts.
Quintus, sole survivor of a Pictish raid on a Roman frontier fort, marches north with General Virilus’ legendary Ninth Legion, under orders to wipe the Picts from the face of the earth and destroy their leader Gorlacon.
But when the legion is ambushed on unfamiliar ground, and Virilus taken captive, Quintus faces a desperate struggle to keep his small platoon alive behind enemy lines, evading remorseless Pict pursuers over harsh terrain, as the band of soldiers race to rescue their General, and to reach the safety of the Roman frontier.
From writer/director, Neil Marshall, CENTURION is a gripping survival thriller set against a background of conquest and invasion; a pursuit movie in the vein of Deliverance, Last of the Mohicans and Apocalypto.
