Centurion US DVD release day!

Neil Marshall's Centurion, starring Michael Fassbender, is being released today here in the US. According to the LA Times, which gave it 3-stars, the DVD is loaded with extras including cast interviews and I expect Michael to be featured heavily in the extras.

As I stated at the end of September, I was finally able to see it in the theater in my hometown - knowing that it would be out on DVD in November, but I had to see it on the big screen, and I'm glad I did as I thought it was a very entertaining film.

Oh, and this past weekend, I received a call from the theater downtown and the lady told me I can come and pick up the Centurion poster. Yeah! I'll go there today after work!

My holiday plans for London are coming along fine, I cannot wait to get away. London in late Fall is beautiful with all the holiday decorations popping up by early November. And if you are a member of the Fassy News Network, you know of a special project I have in development and it's been nice to read some of the positive response to the project. This is a FANtastic opportunity that I'm sure will be greatly appreciated by the recipient.

Here is what the LA Times writes about the Centurion DVD:

It's back to "Gladiator" territory as this adventure from writer-director Neil Marshall ("The Descent") focuses on Roman warriors who must fend for themselves when their leader is captured by enemy troops.

They ultimately decide on what could turn out to be a suicide mission, as they mount a rescue strategy meant to end in a desperate race to get back to their home turf. Stars include Michael Fassbender, Dominic West and Olga Kurylenko ( "Quantum of Solace"). DVD extras: two "making-of" documentaries; deleted scenes; outtakes; interviews with cast and crew; behind-the-scenes footage; photo gallery. *** LA Times Entertainment
