Pompeii is set in the days leading up to the famous eruption of Mt Vesuvius, which destroyed the ancient city of Pompeii in 79AD.
Kit Harington (aka Jon Snow from Game of Thrones) stars as Milo, an enslaved gladiator who must fight for his life in the arena every day. When Cassia (Emily Browning) enters his world and his heart, he must also fight his feelings for her – a noblewoman who is promised to the Roman Senator, Corvus (Kiefer Sutherland) and can never be his. That is until all the world is changed by a storm of fire, ash and lava that will seal the city like a tomb. Now they must all fight to survive.
