I missed the memo, I didn’t realize it was mediocre Greek/Roman over CGI trailer day. Earlier today we brought you the new trailer for 300: Rise of an Empire, and now TriStar Pictures has released a new trailer for director Paul W.S. Anderson’s disaster epic Pompeii.  The film stars Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) as an enslaved Celtic gladiator named Milo 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 (Kiefer Sutherland) who slaughtered his family years earlier.  This trailer lacks a mot of character development, but makes up for it with wanton destruction at the hands of the titular mountain.

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

Here’s the official synopsis for Pompeii:

Set in 79 A.D., POMPEII tells the epic story of Milo (Kit Harington), a slave turned invincible gladiator who finds himself in a race against time to save his true love Cassia (Emily Browning), 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.
