Prince of Persia trailer just released!

by Nathan Taylor
Watch out for this one! After seeing the trailer (see below) for the movie adaptation of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time I have no doubt that this movie will be huge come May 2010 when it opens to the world. The trailer has just been released by Disney and its already wetting the appetite.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time which is based on the classic video game series stars Oscar winner Sir Ben Kingsley, Award-winning actor Jake Gyllenhaal, it's produced by superstar movie-maker Jerry Bruckheimer and it's being released by Walt Disney Pictures... you certainly can't go wrong with that!
This movie very much reminds me of a cross between 300 and Pirates of the Caribbean, in which Bruckheimer also produced.
Not only will this movie bring in big bucks thanks to the acting talent in the film but Disney will make a stack of money from a heavy marketing campaign like they did with the Pirates trilogy, a brand new video game will no doubt be in the works and I wouldn't be surprised if Disneyland create a new Prince of Persia ride for its theme parks.
The following is the only premise released so far for the film: Dastan (Jake Gyllenhaall) is a street urchin in 6th century Persia. After showing valor in battle, he is adopted by the king as his heir, so the king's two sons will not fight over the throne.He teams up with Princess Tamina (Gemma Arterton) to rescue the Sands of Time, a gift from the gods that controls time, from the hands of the villainous nobleman, Nizam (Ben Kingsley).
So until May 2010 enjoy the new trailer below:
