A new trailer has been released for Neil Marshall’s Centurion starring Michael Fassbender and it’s amazing! With a film of this nature, you expect plenty of blood and gore and this red band trailer gives you a hint of both. The things they do with swords and axes is a bit over the top but what else would you expect? Take a look…

How many different ways can you stab someone in the face or slice someone’s neck? It looks like this movie tries to answer that question by any means necessary. There’s a lot of blood, dirt, sweat, and bad eye make up and it looks pretty thrilling. I love gritty period pieces that feature an underdog going at it alone.

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 cast is led by Fassbender and Dominic West and also features former Bond girl, Olga Kurylenko. Centurion is scheduled to hit theaters on August 27, 2010.
