We’ve got our hands on the first movie trailer of The Eagle, the upcoming sword-and-sandal movie directed by Kevin Macdonald and starring Channing Tatum, Jamie Bell, Donald Sutherland, and Mark Strong:
“In 120 AD Flavius Aquila led 5000 elite Roman soldiers on a mission beyond the edge of the known world.
They and their treasured Eagle standard were never seen again…
20 years later the commander’s son (Channing Tatum) set out to solve the mystery of their disappearance.”
The film is based on Rosemary Sutcliff’s novel, The Eagle of the Ninth. The release date of the Eagle is set for February 25, 2011.
