Magnet has released a blood-soaked red band trailer for Neil Marshall’s upcoming war piece Centurion, a film that had our own Brian Salisbury crying out, “good lord, this film is bloody.” So if you like bloody films, it sounds like this one is for you. If you like bloody trailers, we’ve also got your fix as Marshall shows off his cast — including Michael Fassbender and Olga Kurylenko — getting their medieval weapons dirty.
Here’s the film’s official synopsis: “Centurion is set during the war between Roman soldiers and Pict tribesmen during the 2nd century Roman conquest of Britain. Michael Fassbender stars as Quintus Dias, Roman centurion and son of a legendary gladiator who leads a group of soldiers on a raid of a Pict camp to rescue a captured general (Dominic West). The son of the Pict leader is murdered during the raid, and the Romans find themselves hunted by a seemingly unstoppable group of the Pict’s most vicious and skilled warriors, led by a beautiful and deadly tracker (Olga Kurylenko), and hell bent on revenge.”
And the trailer, courtesy of Hulu. Our apologies to our readers outside the U.S., there is no international embed of this trailer just yet. I would also suggest checking out our interview with Neil Marshall at SXSW, where the film debuted on American soil.
