The feature is set in the year 79 A.D., focusing on a "Titanic"-style romance between the slave of a shipping tycoon and his master’s daughter.
Although the slave is on a ship headed for Naples when 'Mt. Vesuvius' explodes with molten lava, the slave is determined to rescue both his best friend, a gladiator, and the love of his life from the onslaught of fire and ash.
Historically, the city of Pompeii was a partially buried Roman town-city near modern Naples in the Italian region of Campania. Along with Herculaneum and many villas in the surrounding area.
Pompeii was partially destroyed and buried under 13 to 20 ft of ash and pumice in »

What he doesn’t know is that Columba’s debt-ridden father has promised Columba to a despicable Roman Senator to pay off an overdue loan.
Milo does know that his friend, the Gladiator Nigellus, is being »

The first full trailer for “Pompeii” makes it look a lot like “Gladiator,” plus a giant volcano erupting all over the Romans. Kit Harrington stars in director Paul W.S. Anderson’s upcoming thriller as a slave-turned-gladiator fighting for his freedom, and then trying to avoid death by lava when Mount Vesuvius erupts. See video: ‘Games of Thrones’ Star Kit Harrington Shows Off Shirtless Body in ‘Pompeii’ Trailer Emily Browning also stars as Harrington’s one true love, while Kiefer Sutherland, Jared Harris, Jessica Lucas, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Carrie-Ann Moss co-star in the period disaster movie. FilmDistrict is releasing “Pompeii” in 3D on Feb. »

In the list of things Jon Snow knows nothing about, we can add “how volcanoes work” to the mix. In the story of the doomed city at the foot of the mountain, Kit Harington is the dashing hero who must swoop in to save his love (Emily Browning) and his gladiator friend trapped in the coliseum when Mount Vesuvius starts spewing. Because nothing says “a romance for the ages” like a ferocious natural disaster that claimed the lives of approximately 16,000 people in a scorching, merciless death (seriously, the eruption caused Pompeii’s citizens to “flash-heat” in an instant when a volcanic surge caused temperatures to reach 570°F), Paul W.S. Anderson‘s Pompeii will hopefully focus less on the kissin’ and more on the fleeing. Harington isn’t playing some Roman nobody, either. In a Gladiator-esque move, he’s a slave who’s spent the last few years fighting for the amusement of the wealthy class while pining »

Lee Scott Batchler, Janet Scott Batchler and Michael Robert Johnson wrote the script for the film which is produced by Jeremy Bolt, Robert Kulzer, Don Carmody, Martin Moszkowicz and Paul W.S. Anderson. Set in 79 A.D., Pompeii tells the epic story of Milo (Kit Harington), a slave turned invincible gladiator who finds himself in a race against time to save his true love Cassia (Emily Browning), the beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant who has been unwillingly betrothed to a corrupt Roman Senator.

If you like your Game of Thrones to be George R. R. Martin-less and a special effects extravaganza only Paul W.S. Anderson could deliver, Sony is hoping you’ll be a fan of Pompeii. Starring Jon Snow himself (a.k.a. Kit Harrington), we have a new trailer for the February blockbuster that clearly takes a nod from the [...] »

A new trailer has arrived online for Pompeii, Paul W.S. Anderson’s historical disaster movie, in which Kit Harington and Emily Browning attempt to escape the erupting Vesuvius. Harington plays an enslaved gladiator who falls in love with Browning’s noblewoman on the eve of the volcano’s eruption. Talk about timing… As if that wasn’t dramatic enough, the chaos brings him face to face with Kiefer Sutherland’s character, the man responsible for killing his family years earlier. Take a look at the new trailer, below… As you...

2014 may well be the year of the ancient action epic. In addition to the two Hercules-centric action-adventures (Kellan Lutz’s The Legend of Hercules and Dwayne Johnson’s Hercules: The Thracian Wars) set to storm theaters, we’re also expecting highly-anticipated midquel 300: Rise of an Empire, Darren Aronofsky’s Noah, Ridley Scott’s Exodus and, of course, historical disaster flick Pompeii.
The final trailer for that aforementioned film, directed by Resident Evil helmer Paul W.S. Anderson, recently premiered online. Focusing heavily on the considerable special effects in the movie, the preview also finds time to highlight its leading man, Game of Thrones‘ Kit Harington, and more specifically, his washboard abs.
Check it out below:
I’m hesitant to say that I’m excited for Pompeii, particularly given Anderson’s reputation for delivering second-rate action flicks (the Resident Evils, The Three Musketeers), but the special effects and cast both look surprisingly solid. »

A gladiator’s life is hard enough without having to deal with a devastating volcano eruption threatening to obliterate your city and kill the out-of-your-league girl you’ve fallen for.
Alas, that’s what Milo (Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington) is up against in Resident Evil director Paul W.S. Anderson’s Mount Vesuvius pic Pompeii. Check out the first official trailer for the 3-D epic after the jump to see a city crumble, Sucker Punch’s Emily Browning pout, and a minimally clothed Harington leap over a pile of burning wreckage on a white horse.
Pompeii hits theaters Feb. 21, 2014. »

Haven’t gotten enough trailers starring hunky guys battling each other with swords yet? Hey, those Greeks of “300: Rise of an Empire” aren’t the only dudes out there hacking and slashing and making a mess of things. Paul W.S. Anderson’s Roman explosion-a-ton “Pompeii” has released its first full trailer, too, and it would like your attention, please. Love stuff blowing up? Then you’re gonna love this! Run, Jon Snow, run! Or, er, ride your horse, Jon Snow, ride your horse! Kablooey! Kaboom! Va-swooosh!!!!!!! Set in 79 A.D., Pompeii tells the epic story of Milo, a slave turned invincible gladiator who finds himself in a race against time to save his true love Cassia, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant who has been unwillingly betrothed to a corrupt Roman Senator.

The new trailer for "Pompeii," Paul W.S. Anderson's 3D take on the destruction of that famed ancient Roman city by the eruption of nearby Mt. Vesuvius. A blending of a big-budget disaster movie, a star-crossed lovers tale, and even some rippling abs from Kit 'Jon Snow' Harington.
Actually considering Anderson's track record, the film looks surprisingly solid. He's downplayed his usual self-aware stylisation to deliver a straightforward tale. Probably helped along by a script this time by "Downton Abbey" creator Julian Fellowes.
"Pompeii" is set to open February 21st 2014.

Film District has released a new trailer for Paul W.S. Anderson's historical disaster film, Pompeii. The trailer is filled with a ton of new footage that mostly showcases the volcanic explosion and ensuing destruction of the city.
The movie stars Kit Harington, Emily Browning, Kiefer Sutherland, Jared Harris, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and Carrie-Anne Moss. If you like the films that Anderson makes then maybe you'll enjoy this one. I'm not the biggest fan of the director, so I'm not expecting much from this other than big special effects.
It’s late summer in 79 A.D. and the city of Pompeii glitters at the foot of the mighty Mt. Vesuvius.

Filmmaker Paul W.S. Anderson specializes in flashy video game cinema (Resident Evil, Mortal Kombat) and/or pulpy science-fiction (Event Horizon, Soldier), so he doesn’t necessarily seem the obvious choice to direct a Titanic-style love story – set against the backdrop of an infamous historical natural disaster – with the upcoming Pompeii. Then again, he also breathed newfound life into Alexandre Dumas’ The Three Musketeers a couple years ago, so maybe Anderson felt like going back in time again.
In Pompeii, finely-chiseled Celtic slave Kit Harington spends his days fighting in the gladiator arena, even while he carries a torch for his Roman master’s daughter (Emily Browning). Unfortunately for Jon Snow, she is betrothed to a much older senator (Kiefer Sutherland): a dangerous man who believes in maintaining the social order.
Of course, the political intrigue and tragic romance aspects of the story get pushed ...

If you like dudes and ladies in olden times yelling, facing peril, and speaking gravely, then 2014 will be your year. Two "Hercules" movies are on the way, along with "300: Rise Of An Empire" and, in case you forgot, auteur Paul W.S. Anderson's "Pompeii." Sort of like a "Dante's Peak" but with better CGI and more robes, the film stars Kit Harington and Emily Browning in the story of slave Milo who has to rescue his love and his gladiator best friend (who is trapped in the coliseum) when a volcano erupts. And while we'll grant the visuals aren't bad, this looks fairy portentous everywhere else, though the movie does have a script by Julian Fellowes ("Downton Abbey," "Gosford Park"), so that's something we suppose. Shrug? "Pompeii" runs from the ash cloud on February 21, 2014. »

Set in 79 A.D., Pompeii tells the epic story of Milo (Kit Harington), a slave turned invincible gladiator who finds himself in a race against time to save his true love Cassia (Emily Browning), the beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant who has been unwillingly betrothed to a corrupt Roman Senator.
As Mount Vesuvius erupts in a torrent of blazing lava, Milo must fight his way out of the arena in order to save his beloved as the once magnificent Pompeii crumbles around him.

It's Gladiator meets Dante's Peak in Pompeii, the newest film from Resident Evil franchise director Paul W.S. Anderson. With a story that follows slaves fighting in an arena, Kit Harrington finds himself in even more danger when Mount Vesuvius begins to erupt and destroy the city and all its inhabitants. However, he must also try to save the woman he loves (Emily Browning) in the midst of this volcanic disaster. The film comes to theaters in 3D next February, however, it looks far too dark and smoky to actually look good in the format. Even in 2D, it's difficult to see many of the actors in all the smoke and ash. Here's the new full trailer for Paul W. S. Anderson's Pompeii, originally from Yahoo: Set in the days leading up to the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, a slave on a ship heading for Naples works to get home to »
