Take a look at a star-crossed couple played by Harrington and Emily Browing as they escape from the clutch of Roman Empire and face the raging Mother Nature.
The first full trailer for Paul W.S. Anderson's historical epic "Pompeii" has just arrived, giving a look at Kit Harington as a gladiator who must fight his way out of the arena to save his lover. But he faces a challenge greater than the corrupt Roman government when Mount Vesuvius erupts in a torrent of blazing lava destroying everything in its path.
Set in 79 A.D., the story revolves around Milo, a slave turned invincible gladiator. He falls for Cassia, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant who has been unwillingly betrothed to a corrupt Roman Senator. He finds himself in a race against time to save them both from destruction as the once magnificent Pompeii crumbles around him.
Emily Browning stars as Harington's on-screen love interest. Kiefer Sutherland, Jessica Lucas, Jared Harris and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje join the cast. The film is expected to be released in the United States on February 21, 2014.
