First Look: Jake Gyllenhaal in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
I know what you're thinking: haven't we already seen photos of a shirtless and buff Donnie Darko as the Prince of Persia? Yes, yes we have, but this is the first official photo of Jake Gyllenhaal, as published in Entertainment Weekly. Unfortunately, that photo seen above is about as big as it gets. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time won't be appearing at Comic-Con next week - it's one of the big movies that Disney decided to leave out of its line-up, for whatever reason. I'm not sure when we'll ever see a trailer - I was expecting to see something this summer - but until that arrives, this photo is going to have to hold us over.
"I'm tired of taking myself so seriously," Gyllenhaal told EW in a completely out-of-context quote. "It's nice when a stuntman turns to you and is like, 'Actors don't normally do this.'" As you'll eventually see (whenever the trailer debuts), Gyllenhaal "found himself sword-fighting, climbing walls, and jumping off of buildings as part of the prince's quest to find an enchanted dagger and turn back time." I'm still quite excited for this, I'm just not that concerned with it yet, because its not going to hit theaters until May 28th next summer. I saw some footage from it last year and it looked pretty damn good, but I'm still waiting patiently for more.
