Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell in new photos from The Eagle
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Today we’re getting a first glance of Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell in Kevin MacDonald’s upcoming epic THE EAGLE. The film will be released next month on February 11th and follows a young Roman soldier (Tatum) who is in search of a golden emblem from a lost legion in order to honor the memory of his father. THE EAGLE takes place in Rome during the time the Britsh ruled the land. The film, which also stars Mark Strong and Donald Sutherland, was originally set for release last fall but was delayed until next month. We’re not sure why, it could be because the distributor Focus Features already had a hefty batch of films to release or it could be because this movie is going to stink up the screen. I guess we’ll know soon enough.
Channing Tatum is rapidly moving up the Hollywood rankings as a potential A-list star but I’m still waiting for a standout role from him. I know it’s coming but I don’t think THE EAGLE will be the film that does it for me.
