The first clip from Paul W.S. Anderson’s ancient actioner Pompeii is now online. While it’s light on volcanic action, this first look does feature quite a bit of gladiatorial fighting. It looks like stars Kit Harington and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje have teamed up against a veritable army of soldiers within the fighting ring. We also get a look at such antagonizing spectators as Kiefer Sutherland, Jared Harris and Sasha Roiz.
Also starring Emily Browning, Carrie-Anne Moss, Jessica Lucas, and Paz Vega, Pompeii opens February 21st. Hit the jump to watch the clip.

Here’s the official synopsis for Pompeii:
Set in 79 A.D., POMPEII tells the epic story of Milo (Kit Harington), a slave turned invincible gladiator who finds himself in a race against time to save his true love Cassia (Emily Browning), the beautiful daughter of a wealthy merchant who has been unwillingly betrothed to a corrupt Roman Senator. As Mount Vesuvius erupts in a torrent of blazing lava, Milo must fight his way out of the arena in order to save his beloved as the once magnificent Pompeii crumbles around him.
