'Pompeii' Trailer: Kit Harington, Volcanic Ash and Fiery Battles (Video)
The disaster film, also featuring Kiefer Sutherland and Jared Harris, is set for release in February 2014.
Volcanic ash slowly drifts onto a desolate landscape in the opening of the trailer for Pompeii, a disaster epic starring Game of Thrones' Kit Harington.
The film, set in 79 A.D., takes place during the volcanic eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Harrington plays a slave who falls in love with Flavia (Emily Browning), the daughter of a wealthy merchant, whom he must rescue from the chaos. There's a bit of 300-esque stylized action in the clip also.
A few familiar faces to TV audiences will appear in the disaster title: Kiefer Sutherland plays the villain, a Roman senator, while Jared Harris (Mad Men), will portray the wealthy merchant.
The film, directed by Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil: Retribution), is financed and produced by Constantin Films. The epic is set to be released by Sony's TriStar Pictures in February 2014.
