Some will flock to upcoming movie ‘Pompeii’ for the disaster porn: exploding volcano, flying fireballs, liquifying lava, all-encompassing ash — all the horror of 79 AD in glorious 3D! But if you’re reading this, chances are you’re only going to the show for the same reason as we are: Kit Harington‘s abs.
The film doesn’t hit theaters until February, but we bought our ticket for it (figuratively) the moment we got the first glimpse of the ‘Game of Thrones’ stud as a shirtless gladiator. And, as evidenced by the brand-new trailer for the film, the producers of Pompeii definitely know something about Jon Snow: His abs sell tickets to movies! Check out the trailer — and Kit’s abs — below…
Kit Harington is such a fox, we can’t stand it. His wild and curly hair, luscious red lips and soulful puppy dog eyes — did we mention his lips? The new GQ is here to remind us of Harington’s inherent hotness, and apparently the fact that there are only something like 456 days (feels like more, tbh) until the next season of “Game of Thrones.”
Yes, our darling Jon Snow has been named “Gamer of the Year” in the magazine’s Men of the Year 2013 issue. We adore the shirtless shot that accompanies the article, OBVIOUSLY, but it’s in the behind-the-scenes video of his photo shoot that he really woos us. He is adorable throughout the clip, but especially as he relays the hilarious reason his childhood girlfriend dumped him.

Kit Harington Is Burning Hot in ‘Pompeii’ (Sorry)
Knowing that Kit Harington has been using his time off wisely makes the long wait for the next season of “Game of Thrones” bearable. First he bared his amazing abs for upcoming film “Pompeii,” and now he’s posing soaking wet on the cover of Wonderland magazine’s September issue. FYI: We’ve seen the photos inside, and they’re WELL worth hunting down.
In the meantime, the mag provides this wonderful wet T-shirt video of Kit’s cover shoot:
Three questions for “Game of Thrones” hunk Kit Harington now that the first image and teaser trailer have been released for his upcoming Mount Vesuvius movie, “Pompeii”:
1) “Pompeii” has you dressed in gladiator chic — will you ever get out of period clothing?
Clad similarly in his next film, “Seventh Son,” Harington is once again wearing the kind of vestments that his “GoT” character Jon Snow wouldn’t find strange — even if he’d likely freeze to death in them himself. The poor guy, even his animated character in “How To Train Your Dragon 2″ dresses like this! C’mon, Hollywood, show some imagination and cast him in something modern!
2) Your abs are astounding in the “Pompeii” still above … you been working out?
“The first thing I said to [director Paul W.S. Anderson] was, ‘Look, I’m playing a gladiator. I feel there should be a physical transformation, if he’s as strong as you say in the script. Maybe I should sort of tone up for that?’” Harington tells Entertainment Weekly. “So I went into quite a heavy training regime five weeks before filming. I started by bulking up and then when I got out there I had four weeks to shred down and get toned. It’s a full-time job that you have to carry on for the whole of the movie. I was on a very severe diet and training six days a week.”
One way to get folks licking their lips to see your TV or movie project? Feature Kit Harington’s delicious lips on your poster!
The folks at HBO clearly knew what they were doing with their supremely kissable Season 3 character poster for know-nothing Jon Snow. And the dreamy Harington isn’t even the first (or second, or third) lead in upcoming fantasy flick “Seventh Son,” but his plump lips nonetheless star in the new poster for the movie unveiled for Comic-Con. No doubt the “GoT” freaks in attendance there GOT to have this poster. ::SMOOCH::
In a related note: Yet another fantasy set in the vague very distant past, featuring swords and supernatural stuff (dragons again!) — does no one besides me see Harington as a lead in a modern rom com?
