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.
