Centurion To Have World Premiere At ActionFest

The inaugural edition of ActionFest will open with Neil Marshall's film about Rome's Ninth Legion.
Centurion can first be seen April 15th in Asheville, North Carolina. The movie is based on the battle between Rome’s famed Ninth Legion and ferocious Picts of Northern England in 117 AD, Centurion stars Michael Fassbender, Dominic West, and Olga Kurylenko. Magnet Releasing had acquired the film and no release dates had been set until now.



What is ActionFest, you say? Here is part of their press release:

This April, Asheville, NC will be the home to the inaugural edition of ActionFest, the world's first film festival devoted exclusively to action cinema, and to the people who make it possible, from filmmakers to stuntmen and fight choreographers. Created by Carolina Cinemas founder/Magnolia Pictures co-founder Bill Banowsky and famed action director and producer Aaron Norris (Missing in Action III, Walker, Texas Ranger), the festival will take place at The Carolina Asheville cinema from Thursday, April 15th to Sunday, April 18th. ActionFest opens with the world premiere of Neil Marshall's bloody sword and sandal epic, Centurion, and is proud to announce that the recipient of its first annual Lifetime Action Achievement Award will be none other than legendary martial artist and action movie superstar Chuck Norris!



That's right! Chuck [frickin] Norris! He had this to say about the festival:

"I set out to do something only when I know it's going to be done right. And I know that's how Bill and Aaron have approached ActionFest,"

"I am honored and privileged to receive an award from ActionFest and to be part of the creation of the first action film festival, one which has been founded in the spirit of giving."


All profits from the festival's first year will be donated to Chuck Norris' charity foundation KickStart Kids

I'd love to see Chuck in a Swords & Sandals movie as a grisled War General!
