This trailer for Pompeii doesn’t really get going until the last 30 seconds but the last half minute is certainly stuffed.
Paul W.S. Anderson often gets a lot of flak for his CGI-filled action films but they are not without their merits. I think that Anderson plays to his strengths and this latest film seems to be a good example of that. It looks bold, brash and full of action set pieces.
Pompeii will be released in February 2014. You’ll know when it’s out, the level of snark will most likely be reaching epic proportions.
