Centurion red band trailer online
A new trailer for Neil Marshall's well cast Centurion is online and it's a red band, although if you ask me the MPAA have been getting over excited again, there's really just a few scenes of horror, one of which is very comic/festival looking, and the others are over in a flash.
There are plenty of mixed comments about the film, but the trailers have been looking great, the subject matter interesting, and the cast line-up superb and also strange - Michael Fassbender, Dominic West, Olga Kurylenko, Ulrich Thomsen, Noel Clarke, David Morrissey, Riz Ahmed, and his wife Axelle Carolyn.
Some excellent names, and some surprising names to see next to them, but it does sound like it's an interesting cast and the fictionalised story of the last Roman Legion to enter Scotland before they retreated from Britain is an exciting one to tell, right up Neil Marshall's street.
Saying that though, I do think that The Descent (Filmstalker review) and Dog Soldiers showed more than the typical horror film festival films that appeal to those fans - you'll know what I mean if you've been to one of those all weekend horror film festivals you'll know exactly what I mean - and I do think it's a shame he seems to be playing more to that audience as Doomsday (Filmstalker review) showed instead of for a more general audience.
Anyway, here's the new trailer for Centurion which looks pretty damn good. Watch for the horror film festival moment with the sword in the face, I can hear the cheers, laughs and applause blocking out the next half a minute of the film.
Can I just say thanks to Dread Central and Quiet Earth for putting the trailer on a decent site that everyone in the world can see rather than just restricting it to America? I hate that.
