New Eagle pics

Some new snaps have surfaced of the Channing Tatum swords and sandals epic THE EAGLE OF THE NINTH, from director Kevin MacDonald (TOUCHING THE VOID, THE LAST KING OF SCOTLAND). They're very, for lack of a better way of describing them, GLADIATOR-esque.

From our own Upcoming Movies section: "The Eagle of the Ninth is set in the dangerous world of second-century Britain. In 140 AD, twenty years after the unexplained disappearance of the entire Ninth Legion in the mountains of Scotland, young centurion Marcus Aquila (Channing Tatum) arrives from Rome to solve the mystery and restore the reputation of his father, the commander of the Ninth. Accompanied only by his British slave Esca (Jamie Bell), Marcus sets out across Hadrian’s Wall into the uncharted highlands of Caledonia – to confront its savage tribes, make peace with his father’s memory, and retrieve the lost legion’s golden emblem, the Eagle of the Ninth."

NINTH is set to open sometime in 2010 and along with Tatum stars Jamie Bell, Mark Strong, Denis O'Hare, and Donald Sutherland. Check out the rest of the pics RIGHT HERE.

Extra Tidbit: Confession Time - I wasn't exactly sober when I saw G.I. JOE (i.e. I was trashed) and Channing Tatum only lasted a whole 3 minutes in PUBLIC ENEMIES. I've also not been privy to such films as STEP UP and FIGHTING. Basically, I've never coherently seen Tatum act. So I guess my question is: Would this guy be any good in a film like this?
