The Volcano and Love Erupts on Molten Hot New Poster for 'Pompeii'

December 23, 2013


We've already seen the full length trailer for Paul W.S. Anderson's disaster epic Pompeii, and while it doesn't look quite as outlandish as his take on the Resident Evil franchise, it certainly doesn't look like an impressive piece of work. Romance and gladiatorial combat lead up to the historical eruption of Mount Vesuvius, which creates mass chaos for the nearby residents. Now a new poster decides to paint a ridiculous picture as the infamous volcano erupts in the background while Kit Harrington ("Game of Thrones") and Emily Browning (Sucker Punch) share a kiss, seemingly unaware of the disaster unfolding behind them.

Here's the new poster for Paul W.S. Anderson's Pompeii from Yahoo:


Set in the days leading up to the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, a slave on a ship heading for Naples works to get home to save the woman he loves and his best friend, a gladiator trapped inside of the city's coliseum.

Pompeii is directed by everyone's favorite filmmaker Paul W.S. Anderson, of the Resident Evil franchise (including Afterlife and Retribution), Mortal Kombat, Event Horizon, Alien vs. Predator, Death Race and 2011's The Three Musketeers. The screenplay currently has credits for Janet Scott Batchler and Lee Batchler plus Julian Fellowes and Michael Robert Johnson. FilmDistrict will be releasing Pompeii starring Kit Harrington and Emily Browning in theaters on February 21st, 2014 next year. Anyone interested?

I hope the last thing they do is kiss and get melted, that would be so romantic.

She'll feel the earth move for sure. I'm going for them being turned into one of those spooky plaster casts made from the shells of people left in the ash. Great place to visit BTW.

"No Warning, No Escape"; perfectly describes the experience you get when you watch a Paul W.S. Anderson movie.

I keep getting Anderson confused with Uwe Boll. Thats normal right?

Most Un-Realistic Scene I Ever Saw. Even in Romantic Disaster like Titanic , King Kong or Twister i didn't see such exaggerated scene. Kiss Under Lava Falling!! Are you kidding me? Hope this was in another right place in movie itself. I didnt think this movie to be have enough philosophy depth for such meaningful romantic scene or maybe that is too mean movie. I think this movie is good (not great) in visual but i really have bad feeling about characterization and story. Yes , I must Wait.

The eruption of Vesuvius shown in the trailer of the film looks like National Day fireworks rather than a real volcanic eruption!!

From the director of one of my least favorite movies ever (Event Horizon). So, yeah ... I'll pass.
