Red Band Trailer for Neil Marshall's CENTURION

Writer/Director Neil Marshall, responsible for modern day favorites DOG SOLDIERS, THE DESCENT and DOOMSDAY returns with CENTURION, a gripping survival thriller set against a background of conquest and invasion.

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 tribes known as the Picts.

Quintus, sole survivor of a Pictish raid on a Roman frontier fort, marches north with General Virilus’ 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, evading remorseless Pict pursuers over harsh terrain, as the band of soldiers race to rescue their General, and to reach the safety of the Roman frontier.

CENTURION opens in theaters August 27, 2010.

It looks like it could be interesting but there's been so many Roman gladiator movies out over the last few years that I'm tired of them.
