Pompeii

Posted: Updated:

Once upon like way back time, we're talking AD here a volcano by the name of Mt. Vesuvius erupted. It destroyed a city named "Pompeii." Fast forward to 2014 and now there's a movie about it.

If lots of action, a love story and an erupting volcano doesn't get your heart pumping, I don't know what will.

"Pompeii" (based on true events) is about how a slave turned gladiator try to save the love of his life during a volcano eruption.

By the way, the volcano thing happened way back when and people were actually plaster casted, translation their last moments were frozen in time.

Shireen: "So plaster cast if you had to be doing something in the last moment of your life, that would be plaster casted what would it be?"

Kit Harrington: "A good ol snog."

Adewale Akinnuoye: "I'd probably go with a prayer first. I'd have a prayer, then a snog."

Kit Harrington stars as Milo, the star Gladiator and Adewale Akinnuoye plays his enemy. The two got in hard core shape for their roles.

Shireen: "What did you find most challenging as far as getting a great body? Was it working out, or the diet?"

Kit Harrington: "I had to go through two processes, bulking up that was the hardest, bulking up is harder then slimming down. Eating more than your used to. And I love food and it ruined my love of food for awhile, but then the shredding down, you go from eating loads to eating absolutely nothing, it's definitely diet."

Adewale Akinnuoye: "The diet was hell. I'm African of origin and I love my food so to be on a diet that tasted like paper was torture."

This movie explodes with major mind-blowing action.

Shireen: "When you go into watch a great action movie, or you want it to be a great action movie, what does it have to have for you?"

Adewale Akinnuoye: "It has to have the sexy element. it just has to. You need a great batty and you need a great hero and you just need those fantastic sequences."

Shireen: "This is a very sexy movie Miami needs to see this.

Adewale Akinnuoye: "Miami needs to see this, because we wore thongs under those outfits for four months."

Shireen: "I don't know why I didn't start with that question."

Kit Harrington: "I got used to it. I have mine on now."

This is not going to win an Oscar, people. But it will win your heart with its spirit and half naked men. And it made me wanna dust off my old lava lamp, go figure.

Pompeii release worldwide today. However, my lava lamp is not for sale.

    Even though Donna Karan's eyes were bright and clear, they were aggressively smudged with dark black eye-liner: a signature look she's worn for years. Unfortunately, the make-up prevented me from getting a good read on her.

    "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" is weaving its way into theaters in just a few weeks, but before it does, the cast is doing a cross-country Spidey tour to tell you why you should see the movie. Today, the stars of the flick, Andrew, Emma and Dane, were hanging out in Downtown Miami at the Mandarin Oriental. I caught up with them to talk all things arachnophobia.
