The Eagle trailer and images

  Universal has just released a trailer and images for their upcoming Roman army film, The Eagle - or The Eagle Of The Ninth as it was called.
  This got me thinking - wasn't there a similar sort of film released in early 2010. Yes was the answer, the Warner Bros/ Pathe film, Centurion. This one seems to be a sequel, of sorts, to that film.

A Roman epic adventure, based on the classic novel of the same name, 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 (played by Channing Tatum of “G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra” and “Dear John”) 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 of “Defiance” and “Jumper”), 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.
The Eagle is released in cinemas on March 18, 2011.
