24th August 79A.D Mount Vesuvius erupted , destroying everything in it’s path, 22nd August  2013 Paul WS Anderson turns history into action in first trailer for Pompeii.

Kit Harrington (Game Of Thrones) leads the line in Pompeii a story of a gladiator who falls in love with a noble woman (Emily Browning) around the time Mount Vesuvius is about to destroy the surrounding lands. However another eruption kicks off as the gladiator faces the wrath of a senator (Kiefer Sutherland)  who was promised the woman’s and in marriage.

Whilst we’re no strangers to Pompeii director’s directorial style amongst sci-fi and horror back in 2011 he opened a few eyes with his rendition of Dumas 3 Musketeers giving him a idea that every historical event in earth’s history can be a action film. The imagery of the trailer you could call iconic (the fossilised  bodies) , the action explosive  over the top just what you expect from Anderson. The opening of the trailer is not typical for him but Pompeii as an action film maybe hard to digest for some cinephiles but I’m sure the female film fans will appreciate many of the male cast showing of their pecks!

Pompeii opens in UK, Ireland and USA on 28th February 2014 co-starring Jared Harris, Carrie-Anne Moss, Joe Pingue, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and Jessica Lucas.
