Haven’t gotten enough trailers starring hunky guys battling each other with swords yet? Hey, those Greeks of “300: Rise of an Empire” aren’t the only dudes out there hacking and slashing and making a mess of things. Paul W.S. Anderson’s Roman explosion-a-ton “Pompeii” has released its first full trailer, too, and it would like your attention, please.
Love stuff blowing up? Then you’re gonna love this! Run, Jon Snow, run! Or, er, ride your horse, Jon Snow, ride your horse!
Kablooey! Kaboom! Va-swooosh!!!!!!!
