Yesterday some new images from Pompeii arrived, and now they’ve been followed up by a new trailer, which shows off both Kit Harington’s abs and the fact it wasn’t a good idea to be living close to the famous Italian volcano in 79AD.
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. It’s certainly looking pretty epic, although also more than a bit over the top.
