Just a couple of days ago, the first image from Pompeii arrived, with Kit Harington showing off his abs. Now it’s been followed up by a trailer, which initially concentrates on the famed remains of human found in the ruins of Pompeii, before going rather Gladiator with Harington, Emily Browning and some disaster movie volcano visuals.
The movie is set days before the historic eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D. It centres on former slave Milo (Harington), who must race to save his true love Flavia (Emily Browning). Jessica Lucas is playing a slave who is a confidante to Flavia. Jared Harris, Kiefer Sutherland, and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje also star.
Janet Scott Batchler and Lee Batchler wrote the original screenplay, which was recently revised by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes. Paul W.S. Anderson’s movie is out early next year.
