Some new images from two upcoming films have landed online. First up, we have a trio of new images from director Paul W.S. Anderson’s disaster pic Pompeii. Kit Harington (Game of Thrones) stars as an enslaved Celtic gladiator named Milo who falls in love with a noblewoman (Emily Browning) on the eve of a massive volcanic eruption that destroys Pompeii, an event that also brings him face-to-face with the man who slaughtered his family years earlier. These images give us or first look at Kiefer Sutherland as the film’s villain and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje as Harington’s friend. The film opens in 3D on February 21, 2014.
Additionally, fresh off the film being named the Best Picture of 2013 by the New York Film Critics Circle, a batch of new images from American Hustle have landed online. Director David O. Russell’s comedic drama takes place in the 1970s and revolves around a con artist duo (Christian Bale and Amy Adams) working with an FBI agent (Bradley Cooper) to root out corruption. These images highlight the pic’s lavish costumes, specifically those worn by Adams and Jennifer Lawrence. The film opens in limited release on December 13th before going wide on December 20th. Hit the jump to check out all of the images.

Here’s the official synopsis for American Hustle:
A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock our nation, American Hustle tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving’s unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, American Hustle defies genre, hinging on raw emotion, and life and death stakes.
