35mm Presentation - The brutal and exhilarating action adventure Centurion is set during the war between Roman soldiers and Pict tribesmen during the 2nd century Roman conquest of Britain. Michael Fassbender (Inglourious Basterds, Hunger) stars as Quintus Dias, Roman centurion and son of a legendary gladiator who leads a group of soldiers on a raid of a Pict camp to rescue a captured general (Dominic West, “The Wire”). The son of the Pict leader is murdered during the raid, and the Romans find themselves hunted by a seemingly unstoppable group of the Pict’s most vicious and skilled warriors, led by a beautiful and deadly tracker (Olga Kurylenko, Quantum of Solace), and hell-bent on revenge. A gripping survival thriller set against a background of conquest and invasion, Centurion is written and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Neil Marshall (The Descent, Dog Soldiers).
