Focus Features has revealed the first look images for their action-adventure “The Eagle of the Ninth,” starring Channing Tatum as 2nd century Roman soldier Marcus Aquila, Jamie Bell (Marcus Aquila’s British slave, Esca), Mark Strong (Guern)and Donald Sutherland (Aquila).

“The Eagle of the Ninth” plot: The story is set in the dangerous world of second-century Britain. In 140 AD, twenty years after the unexplained disappearance of the entire Ninth Legion in the mountains of Scotland, young centurion Marcus Aquila (Tatum) arrives from Rome to solve the mystery and restore the reputation of his father, the commander of the Ninth. Accompanied only by his British slave Esca (Bell), Marcus sets out across Hadrian’s Wall into the uncharted highlands of Caledonia – to confront its savage tribes, make peace with his father’s memory, and retrieve the lost legion’s golden emblem, the Eagle of the Ninth.

    FROM WHAT I HAVE SEEN AND HEARD OF THIS MOVIE IT LOOKS LIKE IT WILL BE VERY INTERESITING AND ENTERTAINING AND IF CHANNING TATUM DOSE AS WELL IN THIS MOVIE AS HE HAS DONE IN ALL OF HIS OTHER MOVIES IT WILL BE A FANTASTIC FILM I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE IT

    This looks good. Can Tatum pull it off with any other accent then Mr America is the big question.

    Bilmey, Jamie Bell grew up fast didn’t he? Bless him, he always gets the underdog role, but he will blow Tatum out of the water. That said, a duck could blow him out of the water. Great director/book/supporting cast.
