A new Roman epic under the title The Eagle has had a new trailer released today. The film, starring Channing Tatum follows Tatum as a Roman soldier who heads into the savage lands of second-century England in order to discover the Eagle from the mysteriously disappeared Ninth Legion that was led by his father.

Check out the trailer below:

It certainly looks epic enough, with Tatum looking like he finally has a role that allows him to act rather than appearing in romantic drama after romantic drama. Jamie Bell also looks to be on good form as well, with some impressive looking battle scenes from director Kevin Macdonald, the man behind The Last King of Scotland and Touching the Void. The new movie is set for a 25th February 2011 release.
