I'm featuring this today more because it's awesome artwork more than anything. Neil Marshall's Centurion is already available via video-on-demand (you can watch it now!) and will be hitting limited theaters as well. Magnolia debuted another new poster for Centurion that's drawn by renowned British comic artist Simon Bisley featuring the film's main characters played by Michael Fassbender and Olga Kurylenko. It's actually a very badass poster and I hope the movies lives up to it. I still haven't seen it yet (watch the trailer), but I'm going to try and catch it soon. Has anyone else seen it? If you have, what did you think? Check it out below!
Centurion is both written and directed by British auteur Neil Marshall, of Dog Soldiers, The Descent, and Doomsday previously. It's an epic action adventure film set in 117 AD about a group of Roman soldiers who must fight for their lives behind enemy lines after their entire legion is decimated in a devastating guerrilla attack. This already premiered at ActionFest and during SXSW earlier this year as well. Magnolia Pictures is distributing it in the US. Centurion will hit limited theaters starting on August 27th as well as early online VOD and Xbox starting July 30th. Visit the official website: centurionmovie.com. Anyone going to watch?
