Check This Out: Official Poster for Neil Marshall's Centurion!
Oh hell yea - this looks badass, too! Magnolia Pictures has debuted the official US teaser poster via IGN for Neil Marshall's Centurion, his action/adventure Roman epic starring Michael Fassbender, Dominic West and Olga Kurylenko. We've already seen the trailer for this but we've been waiting for the debut of the poster - and here it is. This almost looks more like a video game poster, but that said, it still looks pretty awesome. I should be hitting a screening of Centurion this week and will let you guys know what I think once I see it. Has anyone else seen it already? It's getting a mixed 50% on Rotten Tomatoes. Anyway, 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?

Why are the Centurions the good guys?

This is strange... Lots of photoshop and not very good at it. It looks 3d too. The blur doesn't help at all and the face of the guy getting the first cut doesn't look real. It could be good but... Looks a little like old Conan covers by Frazetta but the man dealing the photoshop didn't make it.

Marshall needs to just stick with what he's good at - HORROR. He needs to make BURST 3D.

Unless Olga Kurylenko is naked for about 90% of the movie, I already hate it.

Was able to get into a screening at Cannes. Very disappointing to be honest. Some decent performances but pretty poor production value and a storyline that is not feature film worthy! This was more 60 minute TV film material...... Don't get me wrong, what Marshall does with the material is pretty cool, but it just is not enough to make this an epic film. A good example of a well made straight-to-dvd film. Although it was cool to see McNulty as a roman badass!

Was very average at best with a few good fight scenes, but i'm not a massive fan of Marshall. Dog Soldiers is still his best movie.

Movie still looks like crap.

"Do you like Gladiator movies?"

Why continue to pimp this movie? Nearly everyone who'd seen it has stated that it's an average/mediocre swords and sandals actioner, generic in every conceivable way.
