It was announced yesterday that Magnet Releasing, the genre arm of Magnolia Pictures, has acquired rights to distribute Neil Marshall's Centurion in the US. The film will be the sixth in Magnet's newest Six Shooter Film Series, which originally kicked off with Ong Bak 2: The Beginning and also includes Bronson, John Woo's Red Cliff, District 13: Ultimatum, and The Warlords. Magnet is planning a limited theatrical release of Centurion this summer in US theaters. We also featured the totally awesome trailer for Centurion a few weeks back when it was originally debuted in the UK. I can't wait to see this - glad to know it'll be here soon!

"Centurion is a blood drenched masterpiece," Magnolia SVP Tom Quinn said. "Neil has made an action movie that delivers on every level, and fans are going to go wild for it. There couldn't be a better film to wrap up the Six Shooter series." Director Neil Marshall himself also adds that, "if history is written in blood, then Centurion is hardcore history - bloody and brutal!" That's all anyone needed to say to furhter convince me to see this. Centurion stars Michael Fassbender, Dominic West, David Morrissey, and Olga Kurylenko. It's an epic action adventure 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. We'll keep you updated!
