Universal Pictures recently took a number of journalists on a day out to Silchester and Reading to enlighten us on the historical background behind the Kevin Macdonald directed adaptation of the novel ‘The Eagle of the Ninth’. Much fun was had, and my sidekick Lewis from Film Club and I made this piece chronicling the day. Thanks to Lewis, Penny and Mat at Film Club for their help with the shoot and the edit.

The Eagle opens in the UK on March 23rd.
