You probably already know how this story ends. At least, if you were paying attention in history class. But as with any disaster movie, especially one based on historical events like "Pompeii," knowing how things end doesn't make watching how they get there any less exciting. Especially not with Paul W.S. Anderson directing (in 3D no less).
Set in 79 A.D., "Game of Thrones" star Kit Harington plays Milo, a slave-turned-gladiator who must fight to save both himself and Cassia, the woman he loves (Emily Browning), as Mount Vesuvius erupts and the city of Pompeii crumbles around them. And with a corrupt Roman Senator (Kiefer Sutherland) also vying for Cassia's affection, Milo has a lot more than just lava to contend with.
The story of Pompeii is one that Anderson's been wanting to tell for years, and one that would've been almost impossible without recent advances in computer animation -- »
