Check This Out: Simon Bisley's Badass Comic Centurion Poster

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?

It seems like any Magnolia release is always doomed to just be limited. Shame. I guess I'll be waiting for dvd then.

Olga Kurylenko is hardly that voluptuous.

Watched it on demand this week. It was pretty awesome. The action is well shot and the simple plot is extremely well done.

Saw this On Demand last week.. it was NOT good. Im sorry but the action WAS NOT good #4, did we see the same movie? First..there was very little fighting..and the fight scenes were not very interesting or hard hitting. The plot was very random..not developed well at all. It was just kind of boring. I had high hopes after all the posts about this movie and the trailer..but really it was very very predictable..the climax fight scene was totally non climactic..and the ending so typical There is a reason why this movie is on demand right now and not a normal big movie release..im sure the studio and critics all see how crappy it was. /=

Looks like another re-imagining of the Anabassis and Xennophon, the same tale used as the basis for Walter Hill's "The Warriors". Doomsday was a letdown but Dog Soldiers and The Decent have respected positions in my DVD collection. Looking forward to this.
