Centurion Redband trailer

Magnolia Pictures has released a red band trailer for Neil Marshall’s upcoming historical thriller Centurion starring Michael Fassbender.

Centurion, which was originally titled Ninth Legion, is a British production that follows the legend of the the Ninth Legion – a group of 4,000 men who disappeared following a march from Hadrian’s Wall into Scotland almost 2,000 years ago.

AD 117. The Roman Empire stretches from Egypt to Spain, and East as far as the Black Sea. But in northern Britain, the relentless onslaught of conquest has ground to a halt in face of the guerrilla tactics of an elusive enemy: the savage and terrifying Picts. Quintus Dias (Fassbender), sole survivor of a Pictish raid on a Roman frontier fort, marches north with General Virilus' (West) legendary Ninth Legion, under orders to wipe the Picts from the face of the earth and destroy their leader Gorlacon. But when the legion is ambushed on unfamiliar ground, and Virilus taken captive, Quintus faces a desperate struggle to keep his small platoon alive behind enemy lines. Enduring the harsh terrain and evading their remorseless Pict pursuers led by revenge-hungry Pict Warrior Etain (Kurylenko), the band of soldiers race to rescue their General and to reach the safety of the Roman frontier.
