Sony Pictures just unveiled the trailer for the upcoming "Pompeii" adventure movie, which is directed by Paul WS Anderson (Resident Evil) and recounts the eruption of Mt Vesuvius. Check it out below.
Plot: Set in late summer 79 AD, "Pompeii" revolves around the slave (Kit Harington) of a shipping tycoon who dreams of the day he can buy his freedom and marry his master's daughter (Emily Browning). What the slave doesn't know is that she's already been promised to a corrupt Roman senator, while he's been sold to another owner.
Just when things can't get any worse, Mt. Vesuvius erupts with the power of 40 nuclear bombs. But the slave is trapped on a ship headed for Naples, separated from his love and best friend, a gladiator who is trapped in the city's coliseum. As fire and ash destroy the only world he's ever known, the slave is determined to get back and rescue them.
The new movie co-stars Jared Harris, Kiefer Sutherland, Carrie-Anne Moss, Jessica Lucas and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. It's set to hit theaters on February 28th, 2014.

Did you ever get a chance to shove your buddy to the ground like Dennis Haysbert did to his boss at the diner in HEAT.

i hope the effects of how the volcano swept over the villagers is historically accurate
My mother visited the site and how the bodies were just frozen in time by the lava flow was just incredible

Even though this and 300:Rise of An Empire will both likely be sh*t, most people are going to ignore this because the promotion for 300 will be in overdrive for the entire month of February leading up to the release on March 7th and 300 has stronger brand recognition anyways.
Basically this will flop.

I am very surprised at how solid of a film this looks. I mean guys let us be fair, Paul Anderson isn't Uwe Boll. Pretty damn close but who knows, maybe he goes Justin Lin on us and actually make a solid film. Very solid cast here with those such as Harris (f*cking brilliant Professor Moriarty), Sutherland, Moss, and Akinnuoye-Agbaje. The two leads aren't half bad either. Harington has done a fine job on "Game of Thrones" and Browning has always been a fave of mine. Sucker Punch may have, well basically sucked but she has always been a solid lead in films. So sure I'll give it a chance if I can. But Anderson better go apocalyptic. I mean that day was basically the end of the world to those people. Get dark, gruesome, and make people feel like no hope exists. Then, you come close to depicting the tragedy that was Pompeii.
February, AKA the dumping ground for dogsh*t movies. Perhaps this is counter-programming, but I doubt it. Anderson is a pretty lame-brained storyteller. Decent cast, yes, but: in development since 2006, I believe. Originally a ROMAN POLANSKI film with Scarlett Johansson and Orlando Bloom attached. That would've been a very different beast... for better or for worse.

Looks f*cking terrible, from half the trailer being that of someone talking, to the abs, to the f*cking Clash of the Titans rip-off scenes. A really sh*tty way to trivialize and monetize the people who died, by turning it into some CGI sh*tfest Titanic-esque love story blow-em-up abomination.
