Neil Marshall’s Centurion: the trailer

The first trailer for the new film from Neil Marshall, Centurion, arrives. It looks really rather good, too…

I am a soldier of Rome! I will not yield!”

Could Neil Marshall be one of the planet’s finest exponents of stretching a small-ish budget a long, long way? Because this trailer for his new film Centurion looks, bluntly, far more expensive than it probably was.   

Starring Michael Fassbender, Dominic West, Olga Kurylenko, Noel Clarke and David Morrissey, the film tells the tale of an army of Roman warriors, known as the Ninth Legion, who simply disappeared. The film picks up their story, and as you can see from the trailer, throws them head first into what looks like a terrific battle.

We’re looking forward to this one a lot, and this strong trailer does nothing to dampen that. The film itself arrives on 23rd April.
