If I were standing next to a volcano that was spew lava bomb, magma and pyroclastic flows, I don’t think I’d bother to take the time to have a kiss, but it seems Kit Harington and Emily Browning think differently in this new poster for Paul W.S. Anderson’s Pompeii.
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 revised by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes. Paul W.S. Anderson’s movie is out in February. It’s certainly looking pretty epic, although is this poster is anything to go by, it’ll also be a little over the top.
