Check out your first clip from Paul W.S. Anderson’s “Gladiator 2” — er, I mean, “Pompeii.” Although this is the movie about the exploding mountain, obviously they can’t just start it with the exploding mountain. It’s the “Titanic” approach — you know what’s going to eventually happen, but you have to slowly get there. So, before you get to the lava and ashes goodness, you have to watch the leads fall in love and fight bad guys and such.
That, apparently, includes throwing Jon Snow into the arena and fighting people, then try to kill Jack Bauer. Er, Kiefer Sutherland. It’s not a straight clip. Looks like a lot of cutting around.
Set in 79 A.D., POMPEII tells the epic story of Milo, a slave turned invincible gladiator who finds himself in a race against time to save his true love Cassia, the beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant who has been unwillingly betrothed to a corrupt Roman Senator. As Mount Vesuvius erupts in a torrent of blazing lava, Milo must fight his way out of the arena in order to save his beloved as the once magnificent Pompeii crumbles around him.
Starring Kit Harington, Carrie-Anne Moss, Emily Browning, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Paz Vega, Jessica Lucas with Jared Harris and Kiefer Sutherland.
