Starring Channing Tatum, Jamie Bell, Donald Sutherland, Mark Strong and Tahar Rahim, The Eagle of the Ninth is 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 (Tatum) 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 (Bell), 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 was released February 11th, 2011 and stars Channing Tatum, István Göz, Bence Gerö, Denis O'Hare, Paul Ritter, Zsolt László, Julian Lewis Jones, Aladár Laklóth. The film is directed by Kevin Macdonald.

    Jamie Bell looks better than ever in his first picture from this movie. Can't wait to see this, we really need more epics, more historical movies.
