Centurion is set in AD 117 and centers on the 9th Legion fighting for their lives behind enemy lines after a devastating guerrilla attack. It’s like 300, only with a winter backdrop and the warriors actually wear armour for protection, not just to look cool in slo-mo shots. The film stars Michael Fassbender (300), Dominic West (300), Olga Kurylenko (Quantum of Solace) and is directed by Niel Marshall, the man behind The Decent and Doomsday.
Today IGN released the first trailer for the film, and from the opening titles it appears Warner Bros. will be releasing the film; however that may only be in the UK. No US release date has been released as of yet (the cast is full of non-Americans, so if it is released in the US it may only be a limited one).
Centurion will be released in the UK on April 23rd. I’ll post the US release date once (and if) it gets one.
