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.
