By  · Published on August 3rd, 2010

So you haven’t heard of Centurion yet. That may be because you weren’t at Fantastic Fest last year, or it may be because of your unfair hatred of all things Roman.

Well dust off that ancient racism and get ready to get some blood in your eyes. We’ve got an exclusive clip of the gritty mess of dirt, tears, and abduction that all find the spotlight when a small band of Roman soldiers has to head behind enemy lines in what will surely be come to known as the 2nd century version of Black Hawk Down.

Check it out for yourself:

Quick. Brutal. To the point.

Director Neil Marshall burst onto the scene with Dog Soldiers and The Descent, so it should be interesting to see how he handles fake historical battle sequences.

Or at least it will be interesting to see how Olga Kurylenko got that cocaine nose.
