With the US release still scheduled for February 11, we are finally starting to get clips and pics from The Eagle (of the Ninth*)
Courtesy of Yahoo Movies comes a pretty good "Behind-the-Scenes" clip.
Despite the fact that I am ambivalent at best about the lead, I’d probably see this even without the prospect of watching Mark Strong play a "good guy."

As I posted when discussing Centurion, it remains to be seen which of the two is a better take on the story of the lost 9th Legion of Rome. Centurion was not well received by critics, although I enjoyed it for what it was…plus you know, Fassbender. Hopefully, with the release of The Eagle, those who still haven’t seen it will be tempted to pick up Centurion on dvd.
