‘Pompeii’ Set Visit: Kiefer Sutherland and Kit Harington Take Us to Mt. Vesuvius!

Picture this, leather-clad gladiators swinging mighty axes and swords, a statuesque arena with beautiful frescoes, and a quaint Mediterranean village humming with activity. Alas the magic of the movies, the scene I'm describing isn't anywhere near Italy, but the gargantuan set of Pompeii on the outskirts of Toronto.

Earlier this summer, Sony Pictures invited us on set of their latest blockbuster action film. Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson of the Resident Evil franchise, Pompeii is a swords and sandals epic that takes place in the legendary city as it is about to be destroyed by the volcano, Mount Vesuvius. Most of you have probably seen the chilling teaser trailer of the bodies, in their last moments of life, being turned to ash and preserved forever in stone by the molten lava. Pompeii is a historical recreation of that disaster set against a forbidden love story.
