Magnet Releasing has released a new clip from Centurion online, and it packs a wallop! Neil Marshall's Roman-era action/thriller stars Michael Fassbender, Olga Kurlyenko and Imogen Poots, and is due to be released in theaters on August 27th, although you can apparently check it out right now on On Demand, Dish Network, Xbox Live, PlayStation, Amazon and Vudu.
The new clip is restricted due to a heavy amount of violence, including, but not limited to, lots of axe play, multiple and bloody sword slashing, and last but not least, a flaming arrow to the head. Yeah. But what did you expect from the director of The Descent and Doomsday?
Check out the new clip below, and see all of our Centurion trailers in the gallery! Hit the jump for Magnet's full synopsis.
[video url="http://www.moviefanatic.com/videos/centurion-escape-clip---restricted/" title="Centurion Escape Clip - Restricted"] [/video]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.
