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

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?
