New Pompeii Poster Erupts Online
Vesuvius! Will! Blow!

24 December 2013  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: Tri-Star

We had the final trailer earlier this month, and now here's the ultimate* poster for Paul W. S. Anderson's Pompeii, promising "No warning" and "No escape". No emphasis on the stars either: the thinking is clearly that the focus of the film is the angry Mount Vesuvius. Kit Harington and Emily Browning are relegated to an anonymous embrace. Still, an anonymous embrace is better than no embrace at all, we're saying.

In the film, Game Of Thrones' Harington plays Milo, a slave who must rescue not only his best pal (fellow gladiator Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) but also the woman he loves, Cassia (Browning), when Vesuvius erupts and begins to bury the shining Roman city of Pompeii under ash and debris. There’s just one other issue when it comes to Cassia and Milo’s happiness: she’s promised to a nasty Roman senator, played by Kiefer Sutherland.

Not to be confused with Robert Harris' novel - which Ridley Scott has been developing for TV for ages - this Pompeii bursts forth from a screenplay by Lee Batchler (Batman Forever), Julian Fellowes (Gosford Park, The Tourist) and Michael Robert Johnson (Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes). Carrie-Anne Moss and Jared Harris are also in the cast, and the lava flows in the UK on February 21.

*For a given value of "ultimate".

I love your alternative line for this film. Might I also suggest 'spurting across a cinema screen near you' More
