An new extended trailer for Pompeii has a shirtless Jon Snow and loads of CGI disaster effects, with everybody trying to outrun the fireballs and tidal waves (as people so often do in these movies), but I thought the whole point of the tragedy of Pompeii was that everybody died instantaneously, in the middle of feeding the dog and taking a leak and having sex and whatnot. Was there really a two-hour window to jump on your horse, find your gf, battle the bad guy, and save some ancillary characters before getting out of Dodge? I don’t know. I don’t know. I’ll see it because of all the heaving man-bosoms, but I’m giving this the side-eye. Pompeii opens February 1.

OK, calm down, James. Breathe. You’re going to be OK. Stop shaking. It’s just a picture. Just. One. Gorgeous. Picture. Kit Harington in a leather harness, Givenchy man-skirt, and some kick-ass boots, calmly strutting through the streets of the Old World, looking like he stepped out of a Falcon video. YOWZA. WHAT A MAN! “This is the first scene you see me in,” the Pompeii star tells Entertainment Weekly. “It’s set in London, in fact, and it’s a scene where my character is a gladiator fighting in an arena. That’s his gladiator look. It’s a great little fight against three masked gladiators and sets up who he is and where he’s going. You see me display my skills quite early on.” Perhaps unfortunately for us, this isn’t his uniform. “It’s a costume I don’t actually wear for the rest of the film, but it’s an establishing one.” I’m just glad it exists at ALL.
YOU KNOW NOTHING, JON SNOW. The always incredibly swoonworthy Kit Harington leaves a party at the Chateau Marmont (birdwatching alert? No? Maybe? Wishful thinking?); a dour-looking Amy Sederis films a scene for her upcoming movie Chef (also starring Jon Favreau and John Leguizamo); Riley Keough seen leaving the Joan Jett concert at The House Of Blues in West Hollywood; Will “I can’t feel my bingo” Poulter at the We’re the Millers premiere at the Zeigfeld Theater in New York (I have a feeling he’s the only reason to see it); Joe Jonas waves to fans as he arrives at Wild FM radio station in West Palm Beach; and look! Emile Hirsch out and about at SoHo in New York City, looking like a MAN with that beard coving up his little baby face. And yes, it’s nice to see him again, and yes, he’s very handsome, but is really so wrong that I wish he would just dress in his Speed Racer outfit wherever he goes? (Pacific Coast News)
Just in time for Comic-Con, Warner Bros has released the first poster for their upcoming medieval dragon-slaying epic Seventh Son. The movie stars Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore, Ben Barnes, Alicia Vikander, Antje Traue, Olivia Williams, and Kit Harington, so it’s rather amusing that the first poster would feature KIT, as opposed to, say, one of the leads. But I guess they know who the Comic-Con audience wants to see. (via Beyond Hollywood)
