Watch: Epic Ancient Rome Action in First Trailer for 'The Eagle'
"The Eagle is not a piece of metal. The Eagle is Rome." Focus Features has debuted an epic trailer on Apple for the action flick The Eagle, originally known as The Eagle of the Ninth, starring Channing Tatum, Jamie Bell, Mark Strong, Donald Sutherland, Un Prophete's Tahar Rahim and many others. This was directed by Kevin Macdonald, of The Last King of Scotland and State of Play, and is set in Roman-ruled Britain. Tatum plays a young Roman soldier who endeavors to honor his father's memory by finding his lost legion's golden emblem. It looks quite awesome, lots of good action and story, I'm definitely interested in checking it out.

The Eagle is directed by Kevin Macdonald based on a book by Rosemary Sutcliff. Arrives in theaters on February 25th next year.
