Neil Marshall’s CENTURION takes place in 117 A.D. and focuses on the conflict between a group of Roman soldiers and a savage tribe known as the Picts. Check the red band trailer after the jump.
Following director hosted screening at the Los Angeles (opening this weekend) and Montreal’s Fantasia (July 8-27) film festivals, CENTURION premieres on VOD, Xbox and Amazon.com on July 23 and opens in theaters August 27, 2010. Here’s the synopsis:
“CENTURION 117 A.D. 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.”
