Paul W.S. Anderson (the maestro of mayhem behind the Resident Evil franchise, as well as one-offs like AVP: Alien vs. Predator and the remake of Death Race) seemingly wants to get into the natural disaster leveling business of Roland Emmerich (The Day After Tomorrow and 2012) and even Mel Gibson (Apocalypto) with this race against time by a gladiator (Kit Harington) out to save his beloved princess (Emily Browning) before Mount Vesuvius destroys the glorious Pompeii, although we know how that turns out, right? Lots of CG ash and eerily well-preserved bodies captured in the final moments of love and horror. Opens wide Feb. 21. (PG-13) Not screened in time for review
