‘Pompeii’ Review

Pompeii Review
Screen Gems

Sometimes you have to wonder if writers are aware of just how much of their scripts inadvertently rip off or openly resemble other movies. For example, three writers are credited with ‘Pompeii’ – did it ever occur to any of them that their disaster film was ‘Titanic’ meets ‘Gladiator’ with a ‘Conan’ opening thrown in for good measure? Surely director Paul W.S. Anderson, the auteur responsible for the ‘Resident Evil’ film series, did, not that I imagine he cared.

Pompeii Photos

After starring in the last 'Silent Hill' movie, Kit Harington continues his quest to extend beyond his "Jon Snow" character on 'Game of Thrones' with 'Pompeii,' a romance-action-'Gladiator' mashup directed by 'Resident Evil' helmer Paul W.S. Anderson. While the film probably isn't on the top of most moviegoers' lists of the most anticipated of 2014, the newly released photo gallery from Sony Pictures shows it'll have at least a few thrills for audiences ... and one menacing Kiefer Sutherland.

Seems like everyone's getting in on the action for Super Bowl 2014: 'Pompeii,' the new film from Paul W.S. Anderson (best known for the 'Resident Evil' franchise), has released a spot for this Sunday's big game. It's no 'Amazing Spider-Man 2' or 'X-Men: Days of Future Past,' that's for sure -- but hey, it's still got plenty of action, and knowing Anderson, it could be pretty nuts.

‘Thor 2′ Star Talks His Dual Role, Joss Whedon’s Contributions, and Upcoming Projects

Thor 2 Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje Interview
Marvel Studios

'Thor 2' will take movie goers into the depths of 'The Dark World' and introduce us to a few not-so-famous comic book villains from the Marvel universe -- the Dark Elves, led by Malekith the Accursed and his right-hand man and lieutenant Algrim/Kurse. Before you see the Asgardian Avenger's next solo adventure, we spoke with Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, who plays the latter character(s), to offer a primer to this new race of villains and his experience with tackling two roles at once.

‘Thor 2′ Star Still Interested in ‘Black Panther,’ Talks His Gladiatorial Battles in ‘Pompeii’

Aside from what we've seen from Chris Hemsworth's return as the Avenger from Asgard, one of the most anticipated aspects of 'Thor: The Dark World' is seeing the dueled comic book villain Algrim/Kurse brought to life on the big screen by 'LOST' and 'G.I. Joe' star Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje. Although the actor has expressed interest in playing the Black Panther in a future Marvel movie, which the studio confirmed is in active development, he tells ScreenCrush he's just honored to be involved in this cinematic universe in any respect.

Still, with more high-profile roles coming up, including 'Resident Evil' helmer Paul W.S. Anderson's 'Pompeii,' is there a chance he could still tackle his favorite childhood superhero? Or be featured in more Marvel movies, for that matter?

As one of the most popular actors on HBO's 'Game of Thrones,' Kit Harington is looking to turn geekdom's love of Jon Snow into a full-fledged leading man career. That plan may have stalled with 'Silent Hill: Revelation,' but he probably has a better chance with the upcoming 'Pompeii,' which casts the impossibly pretty actor as a gladiator fighting to survive in the titular doomed city. Our first look at the film has arrived, and while we don't see any of the promised volcanic destruction, we do get to see Mr. Harington's new physique, which is, uh, impressive.
