Centurion in Ann Arbor

Thank God! I just learned this morning that Michael Fassbender's Centurion WILL finally play here in Ann Arbor, Michigan at the State Theater starting this Friday! I'm so excited as my birthday is coming up on the 30th and this is a fassytastic birthday gift to me! I will have Laurie tag along with me because she is excited to see this on the big screen too.
According to the report at Annarbor.com - “Centurion” played select festivals, mainly in Europe, earlier this year and opens at the State Theater this Friday. Set in ancient times during the war between Roman and the Pict tribesmen of Britain, the film stars Michael Fassbender as a Roman centurion who must subdue a seemingly unstoppable group of the Pict warriors. Their most vicious and skilled warriors are led by a beautiful and deadly tracker (Olga Kurylenko), who is bent on revenge. Salon.com says, “It offers riveting storytelling, gorgeous cinematography and scenery, loads of gore, and a politically complicated history lesson.”


And speaking of birthdays, because I was busy inToronto, I forgot to acknowledge the 2nd anniversary birthday of Fassinating Fassbender!!! I created FF just days after meeting Michael at the 2008 TIFF Hunger premiere. Being so impressed by his talent and charisma, I started to blog about him and it's been a fun adventure and I'm looking forward to many more years to come!
