Channing Tatum Talks The Eagle, Playing Marcus Aquila


Channing Tatum Talks The Eagle, Playing Marcus Aquila

Channing Tatum hosted Constellation’s online screening of “The Eagle,” a film by Kevin Macdonald starring, aside from Tatum, Jamie Bell and Donald Sutherland.

Tatum said the toughest challenge about portraying his character, Marcus Aquila, was making sure that he accurately portrayed the time period.

“The toughest thing about portraying Marcus was to trying to project yourself back into that time and hope you’re always being somewhat accurate and honest,” he said. “So much time separates now from then so it’s challenging to try to make it as real as you can. especially with the language barrier.”

“The Eagle” is set in Roman-controlled Britain, where Marcus Aquila works to honor the memory of his father by finding his lost legion’s emblem, a golden eagle, as stated on IMDB.

Constellation was co-founded by James Lawler and Reid Carolin, who have worked with various entertainment companies. Constellation is a virtual movie theater where moviegoers can interact with hosts and other movie fans. According to the press release:

“Constellation is the leader in virtual theatrical exhibition, and your online movie theater. Just like a traditional theater, users purchase tickets to attend scheduled showtimes of films, or create their own showtimes. However unlike other online platforms, watching movies on Constellation is a social experience. Users can invite friends to showtimes they’re attending and watch together. Many movies are presented by VIP hosts, such as the films’ directors, actors, or other notables, who appear live in the online theater to answer questions from the audience during and after the film.”
