The first trailer has been released for the action epic, Centurion. The folks over at IGN have debuted the video that features Michael Fassbender and former Bond Girl Olga Kurylenko. It seems like we’ve been waiting forever for this film and finally some legitimate promotion has come our way. We don’t know what the big deal is, the movie looks pretty good. Take a look at the trailer…

Centurion speculates on the fate of Rome’s reputedly ‘lost’ Ninth Legion, who in this take are north of Hadrian’s Wall, engaged in a bloody battle and facing a bit of trouble getting out of hostile Pict country. We get to see what happens as they try to fight for freedom behind enemy lines. The film is directed by Neil Marshall and it has a serious Gladiator feel to it.

The cinematography in this film looks amazing, but beware of the graphic violence because the trailer does show blood squirting everywhere. A pleasant surprise is Olga Kurylenko’s character, who looks like an Amazon who’s kicking ass and taking names later. It’s great to see her in a role that doesn’t require her to play a piece of eye candy.
