Today we have six new high res images from the upcoming Centurion fantasy adventure movie which is directed by Neil Marshall (Doomsday, The Descent) and based on a script he wrote.
Based on the legend of the Ninth Legion, an army of 3000 unstoppable Roman warriors who vanished without trace, Centurion is the tale of their vicious conflict with a murderous adversary, the Picts. Quintus Dias (Michael Fassbender), a Roman corporal, is taken hostage by the Pict King, Gorlacon and the Ninth are charged with bringing him home and ending Pict domination of Britain. Led by General Virilus (Dominic West) and guided by a Pict prisoner and warrior woman named Etain (Olga Kurylenko), the army marches towards enemy territory and finds itself in the midst of a perilous battle with a mysterious foe.
The movie stars Olga Kurylenko (Hitman, Quantum of Solace), Michael Fassbender (Hunger, 300), Dominic West (Punisher: War Zone), Noel Clarke, JJ Feild and Riz Ahmed.
Centurion is set to be released April 23, 2010 in UK and August 27, 2010 in Finland but has yet to be acquired for US distribution.
