Academy Award-winning director Kevin MacDonald re-teams with LAST KING OF SCOTLAND screenwriter Jeremy Brock for this historical epic set in second century Britain, based on Rosemary Sutcliffâ€™s novel THE EAGLE OF THE NINTH. The year is 135 A.D. It's been 15 years since the Ninth Legion went missing in the mountains of Scotland, and it's up to Marcus Aquila (Channing Tatum) to find out what happened. His own father was the commander of the Ninth, and by discovering what fate befell the fearless leader, Aquila could restore his failing reputation. Crossing Hadrian's Wall and navigating the treacherous highlands ofCaledonia won't be easy though, especially since Aquila's only travelling companion is his British slave, Esca (Jamie Bell). Along the way, Aquila will attempt to make peace with his father's memory as he and Esca confront the savage tribes of the land and attempt to recover the lost legion's golden emblem -- the treasured Eagle of the Ninth. Donald Sutherland and Mark Strong fill out the rest of the starring cast.
