The Eagle. Coming February 11th is the first film completed by a brand new British film company. It looks a lot like The Centurian(2010), by UK’s Pathe only with much more authentic props and costumes and WITHOUT the fictional sub-Saharan Africans.

The Eagle is about a Roman officer attempting to locate the lost Gold Eagle of the 9th Roman Legion. It is based on a book by Rosemary Sutcliff. It is directed by Scotland’s Kevin MacDonald. This is the same director that made Last King of Scotland about the Ugandan dictator Idi Amine. A movie that contained none of the political correctness I was expecting. Such as Hotel Rwanda’s blaming white people for an ethnic conflict that predates the colonial period by over 500 years.

The Centurian had a budget of $12 million, and only a very small release in the United States. The Eagle will be distributed by the “Art House Films” division of Universal and will receive a wide distribution. Commercials have begun airing in markets across the nation.
