The first image from  director Paul W.S. Anderson’s (Resident Evil, The Three Musketeers) disaster film Pompeii has landed online. Those of us used to Kit Harington’s bundled and multi-layered Jon Snow from HBO’s Game of Thrones are getting our first eyeful of his chiseled body. Harington plays Milo, an enslaved Celtic gladiator who falls in love with a noblewoman (Emily Browning) on the eve of a massive volcanic eruption that destroys Pompeii, an event that also brings him face-to-face with the man who slaughtered his family years earlier.  Harington bulked up for the role in order to convincingly play a gladiator, and his training definitely appears to have paid off.

The film also stars Kiefer Sutherland, Jared Harris, Carrie-Anne Moss, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Jessica Lucas, and Paz Vega.  Pompeii opens in 3D on February 21, 2014.
