Things get bloody in the red-band Centurion trailer

I dig the elements Neil Marshall throws into his movies. Werewolves, special forces soldiers, savage underground creepers, post-apocalyptic cannibals… and now the period pursuit flick CENTURION provides fireballs, axe maiming, spurting arteries and badass warrior women.

The movie doesn’t hit theaters until late August, but you’ll be able to catch it on VOD, Xbox and Amazon on July 23rd. Thanks, Magnet!

The synopsis: 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.

Check out the red-band trailer below (and apologies to international visitors that might not be able to access it).
