POMPEII: Official Trailer

Disastee Movie Meets 300?

By Robert T. Trate     August 22, 2013

The premise of setting a story during one of the greatest disasters in known history is very appealing. Half way through the trailer though you get that 300 knock off vibe. This is only a teaser so hopefully we will see a little more on Pompeii this winter. 

Synopsis: 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 the city's coliseum.

Pompeii features Emily Browning, Kit Harington, Carrie-Anne Moss, Paz Vega, Kiefer Sutherland, Adweale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, and Jared Harris. The film is directed by Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil: After Life). 

Pompeii explodes February 21st, 2014.

This looks like it will kick ass.  It does not look like a master piece but it does look like fun.  Let the Anderson haters hate, I like his movie a lot.

I've been to Pompeii.  Seen some of the bodies mummified in the ash.  It's weird.

This looks...meh.

Looks cool.  I walked past Kit on the street in Toronto a few weeks ago.  He's a pretty short guy but man did he ger ripped for this.  My wife is going to want to see that.  LOL.  Is this going to be like Titanic in the way that it's a fake story set during a real tragedy?  Looks like there is quite a bit of actoin but I still can't really tell what the film will be about exactly.

wonder if they'll get the history right. pompeii was a brothel town... approx 35 brothels discovered for a town of only 10000, people, or 1 brothel for every 286 folks or 71 males. It's where dignitaries and tourists came to "ease their bodily frustrations". Looks like they're attempting to depict it as something more regal when it was simply a tourist town where you went to wet your carrot.

I think this is a great teaser. A teaser should make you go,"Wow! That looks interesting. I want t know more." This does that for me.

The ashes that first look like snow. Then they back away to show they are bodies, which goes to scenes of the living movie characters and the shock, anguish, and passions they have. End titles.

I find that effective. I don't know if the whole movie is good but I consider the teaser a job well done.

There have been a few movies and at least one TV miniseries that I recall on the subject of Pompeii but nothing in decades. It's a good movie subject to try again.

Paul W.S. Anderson

I liked Event Horizon and Soldier and then everything he did got less and less, Resident Evil was alright, still the best of the whole series and I even kinda liked AVP, both are not great films though, only but an opinion but from what I understand it's a widely shared opinon on both films.  Everything else he's done is pretty bad.  I will watch this someday, but not for money, he has to earn that back.

Been to both Pompeii and Herculaneum. Amazing. The frescoes and mosaics reveal much about Roman life and culture. The body shapes are hollow but reveal a horror frozen in time . It's at first macabre but then oddly fascinating to have caught someone's last moments alive. The things they clung to, family members they tried to protect, and even the panic of those trying to escape. Chilling amongst the attention to detail in restored rooms, hallways, and atriums.

Calamity, many of those brothels were in fact former brothels. Just like today, "certain kinds" of businesses were forced to relocate when a neighborhood changes or morality codes were enforced. Archaeologists often found that many of the frescoes displaying the types of sex acts and their prices had been painted over in many of the buildings.
