Kit Harington is most popularly known as Jon Snow in HBO’s “Game of Thrones” but his success there finds him moving to the big screen. He was previously seen in Silent Hill: Revelation 3D and will next be seen in Seventh Son, which has recently gone undated after it moved from Warner Bros. to Universal in the WB/Legendary separation, but after that he’ll be seen in Pompeii for Resident Evil director Paul W.S. Anderson on February 28, 2014.
Set in late summer 79 A.D., Pompeii revolves around the slave (Harington) of a shipping tycoon who dreams of the day he can buy his freedom and marry his master’s daughter (Emily Browning). What the slave doesn’t know is that she’s already been promised to a corrupt Roman senator, while he’s been sold to another owner.
Just when things can’t get any worse, Mt. Vesuvius erupts with the power of 40 nuclear bombs. But the slave is trapped on a ship headed for Naples, separated from his love and best friend, a gladiator who is trapped in the city’s coliseum. As fire and ash destroy the only world he’s ever known, the slave is determined to get back and rescue them.
