The people at Sony Pictures and FilmDistrict have finally given us a look at the promotional poster for the upcoming action/adventure film Pompeii.
The film is set in 79 A.D. The film tells the story of Milo, who is being played in the film by Game of Thrones actor Kit Harrington, a slave who becomes a fierce gladiator. Milo is trapped in a race against time to save the love of his life, Cassia, played by Sucker Punch’s Emily Browning.
Cassia is the daughter of a wealthy merchant who has been betrothed against her will to a corrupt Roman Senator. As Mount Vesuvius begins to erupt, Milo must fight his way out of the arena in order to rescue his beloved Cassia before everything that they have ever known burns under the fiery lava that will destroy one of the world’s most magnificent civilizations.
The film is being directed by Resident Evil director Paul W.S. Anderson.
Pompeii also stars The Matrix actress Carrie-Anne Moss as Aurelia, Jean-Francois Lachapelle and Rebecca Eady as Milo’s mother and father, Evil Dead’s Jessica Lucas as Ariadne, Jared Harris as Lucretius, Kiefer Sutherland as Senator Corvis, and many more.
