Prince of Persia Trailer

Disney has finally debuted the first trailer for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, based on the video game of the same name, on MySpace. Jake Gyllenhaal stars as Prince Dastan alongside of Gemma Arterton as Tamina, Alfred Molina (who we get a brief glimpse of in the trailer), Ben Kingsley, and Toby Kebbell. This looks pretty frickin' awesome, I must say, even despite all the concerns about Gyllenhaal playing the lead, it looks great. I'm a sucker for these types of epic adventure movies and anything Jerry Bruckheimer produces and this certainly fits the bill. But of course, I'm not the one it has to impress. What do you guys think?

Watch the first official trailer for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time:

You can also watch the Prince of Persia trailer in High Definition on MySpace

Follows a prince who must stop an angry ruler from unleashing a sandstorm that could destroy the world.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is directed by English director Mike Newell, of Donnie Brasco, Pushing Tin, Mona Lisa Smile, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire previously. The screenplay was co-written by Doug Miro and Carlo Bernard (The Uninvited, The Sorcerer's Apprentice) and the story was developed by Jordan Mechner, one of the original creators of the video game. Disney will be bringing Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time to theaters everywhere starting on May 28th, 2010 next summer. Will you be seeing it?

I'll watch it on Blu-Ray sometime next year

Good, as far as a trailer goes. If it can keep that kind of thing going for two hours, then that's something else entirely. I will say, Bruckheimer sure knows how to make these kinds of movies, doesn't he?

I believe the words "hell ya" are appropriate here

Brandon on Nov 2, 2009

also the early review says the ending is the same as the game which is great

nelson on Nov 2, 2009

awesome, looks like they put some effort into it. biggest concern, will they show him die a few times and use the dagger the reverse time? I HOPE SO!

xerxex on Nov 2, 2009

Its going to be a fun ride, Bruckheimer knows how to produce these movies

Looks OK, nothing special.

TTop on Nov 2, 2009

Looks like the Mummy. Not necessarily a bad thing. Looks fun. Gylenhall is perfect aside from the accent.

Calum on Nov 2, 2009

Blah. Way way way too much dialog. No good indication of how the action is presented. Horrendous trailer.

Mark on Nov 2, 2009

ehhhh looks alright.

PJ H on Nov 2, 2009

The movie looks amazing!!

Rashad on Nov 2, 2009

So basicly, bloodless CGI crapfest.

What is that font they use? Its awesome. Yeah the trailers good, too.

klaus_komix on Nov 2, 2009

Alright I'll admit that it looks pretty generic and cheesey, but for a videogame adaptation it looks awesome. I'm getting that same dumb fun vibe from this trailer that I got from those Sherlock Homes trailers and I'm pretty excited for that one as well. I mean come on this might be the best videogame adaptation we will ever get from the looks of it, so I wouldn't be expecting so much. And believe me when I say that thats saying alot when it comes to this genre.

wrongturn687 on Nov 2, 2009

15

i saw the movie without seeing the movie. lol...

LC on Nov 2, 2009

16

its not bad but not good but i still want to see it

charlie on Nov 2, 2009

17

of course we all going to see this movie, doesnt matter how many people say they wont watch it they are mostly likely will be first at the opening of the movie LOL. anyway the trailer seems alright but Jake Gyllenhaal doing humour in this movie seems off to me. in the trailer he has not got a relax charisma about him. but im hoping when i see this movie he prove me wrong.

tazz on Nov 2, 2009

Disney is swimming in uncharted waters... who knows if there will be sharks? Best bring yee harpoons, Walt. Very interesting.

Man With No Name on Nov 2, 2009

19

meh whatever

Bladerunner 2 on Nov 2, 2009

20

This looks alright, but come on now, we all know what the best vido game adaptation movie is.......... MORTAL KOMBAT!!!!!

Cmurder on Nov 2, 2009

21

This looks very good! Just a thought: Is this not supposed to be the Middle East? Then why are the main character White, and have English accents? Other than those to questions, I can't wait to see this.

David on Nov 2, 2009

22

agree with 1

Verno on Nov 2, 2009

23

Meh.. Hope the Uncharted Movie is better

Jay on Nov 2, 2009

24

@#20 yes i great Mortal Kombat is the best video game adaptation @#21 the reason why the main character is white is because its Hollywood. but you got to remember not all Middle East just got brown or black skin some come out looking white too. plus why everyone has a English accents is because everyone is English from the director and actors i.e. - the director Mike Newell is English - Gemma Arterton is English - Ben Kingsley is English - Alfred Molina is English - Toby Kebbell is English Jake Gyllenhaal trying to do a English accent lol.

dan_the_man on Nov 2, 2009

25

on accent people please play the games first god lol he sounds like the prince go watch the sands of time intro and listen to the prince they are almost identical

nelson on Nov 2, 2009

26

That was surprisingly not horrible. Maybe it will be alright? Does remind me a lot of Pirates. Also to answer the "British Accent Question", I guess you don't remember Troy and Alexander. Apparently if you want to sound mythical you do it with a British Accent. I'd almost say that Jake's accent is a little better than Brad Pitts, but that isn't saying much.

Stevo on Nov 2, 2009

27

Must watch? lol bad acting and weak story.

M-Cat on Nov 2, 2009

28

Brendan Fraser sure looks a lot like Jake Gylenhall here. But why are they calling a Mummy sequel "Prince Of Persia?"

Script Shadow on Nov 2, 2009

29

the humor falls flat. but looks like a fun ride for sure.

dave13 on Nov 2, 2009

30

Lame. At what point in the film does Jake Gyllenhaal pout and cry? Any takers? Let's start the money pool. I say 17 minutes in and it never stops. "I wish I knew how to quit you"

Warren J on Nov 2, 2009

31

lol. Pretty much expect a subpar movie. Looks like thats exactly what we will be getting. Also.Less mummy reminders please.

Filmfan1111 on Nov 2, 2009

32

This looks pretty fun, I think it has good potential, plus its Disney and did anyone play the game? What are you expecting? Kingdom of Heaven? lol. Is there a real High Def trailer somewhere?

Richard on Nov 2, 2009

33

Disney movies scare me now, You never can tell if they'll be worth something untill A. you go and, possibly, waste time and money to find out for yourself or B. someone else goes and sees it for you This movie has a great concept and story to work with, just as the video game did. Let's just hope that the idea doesn't get fall flat from bad execution. PS. If anyone's ever played the actual game, they'd know that no real blood was involved, the opponents just dissolved into dust. Which could give the mouse an advantage in twisting around his kid-friendly ultraviolence. Or it could just make the movie even more of a pain to watch, in the long run. Just have to wait and see.

HunterDuke on Nov 2, 2009

34

So people are either comparing this to Mummy... Or Pirates of the Caribbean? Why are people knocking it so much? I think it looks awesome, a great adaptation of Prince of Persia, a video game. What more did you want to see that you aren't getting in this?

Alex Billington on Nov 2, 2009

35

Mummy 4, there it is.

Patrick on Nov 2, 2009

36

Meh... but I'll still see it.

Icarus on Nov 2, 2009

37

Wow... I was hoping this movie would be decent, but the trailer looks pretty horrible. 9 out of 10 times games make terrible movies and vice versa, but I figured Prince of Persia: Sands of Time had such an original and entertaining plot the movie might just be decent... Wrong.

Vic on Nov 2, 2009

38

This probably looks like the best adaptation of a video game yet. And it looks like a fun movie so I'm there.

Nethanel DeCarmo on Nov 2, 2009

39

looks entertaining. borrowing a lot from the mummy and pirates. Gemma Arterton is definitely channelling Rachel Weis' mummy character. should be fun.

CL on Nov 2, 2009

40

Alex I can answer that...wait no I can't. well anyways I'm psyched!

xerxex on Nov 2, 2009

41

@ #34 we dont know if its a great video game adaptation yet until we see it in the cinema. Mortal Kombat is a great video game adaptation, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time we still dont know yet. anyway i think everyone want too see a dark edge to Prince of Persia movie that dont feel like the Mummy or Pirates of the Caribbean.

dan_the_man on Nov 2, 2009

42

i agree with alex on everything i dont see what people like vic see lol

nelson on Nov 2, 2009

43

I'm in with it, staight to theatre

ishteaque on Nov 2, 2009

44

My only problem with this movie is the change from the original game storyline, but that said, the game story does not make a very good MOVIE story. If any1 has played the trilogy, u can see them hinting at The Dark Prince when he uses the dagger, that's something the gamers will really appreciate. I assume Warrior Within ( in which i hope they maintain the darkness, even though its DISNEY ) and Two Thrones wont be far behind. All in all, this trailer was fantastic, reminded me a lot of the game, and Gyllenhall suits the role, altho Hritik Roshan would have been perfect.

Raunak on Nov 2, 2009

45

do anyone knows the music used in the trailer

tazz on Nov 2, 2009

46

Looks good, but they couldn't find a actor of persian descent? Theres gotta be some Turkish guy just waiting for his big break and they give it to brokeback cowboy

PimpSlapStick on Nov 2, 2009

47

Alex/34: We're making those comparisons because it's our nature to compare the unknown with the known. I'm going to try an ignore this movie because I'm making the same comparisons and I hated Pirates and The Mummy. I also can't think of any video game adaptations that I liked. (It is true, I'm a really picky snob and this point of view doesn't usually matter when talking about summer blockbusters)

Prestron on Nov 2, 2009

looks okay, better than expected atleast

harrison on Nov 2, 2009

looks fun, but very cheesy

movie mike on Nov 2, 2009

50

LOOKS GREAT!! I gotta say when I heard they were make the Pirates of the Caribbean ride into a movie I thought it was gonna be shit so I have high hopes for this one! Don't let me down Jerry..

lo on Nov 2, 2009

51

is it me or did anyone else find Gemma Arterton's voice over annoying? Alex - American actor, British Actress, Fantasy with Action, Desert/Sand = Mummy; it is first movie that comes to your mind. The visual effects and action looks good. I think it did justice to the games, but I need to see a better trailer to convince me to watch it.

Ron on Nov 2, 2009

52

booooooooo

-Peter- on Nov 2, 2009

53

@ 44 i looked at the rest of the casting list and it seems the people who have a persian descent are freaking extras. plus they even got a Turkish actor in the movie named Umit Ulgen his playing King's Guard

blaze on Nov 2, 2009

54

The lead female is totally unrealistic. If a female of that time talked to a male like that, he would have beat her silly or sold her to some other man. They might as well have cast Charlize Theron and just told her to act like her normal manish self.

Phil on Nov 2, 2009

55

Sooooo... these people are supposed to be Persian??? All I see is Caucasians in Halloween costumes. Let me check the score... [White People]: 583,938,395,721 - [Minorities]: 6 Honestly, this doesn't look bad, but it's nothing ground breaking or really impressive for that matter.

sean on Nov 2, 2009

56

@50 - The plot is about destroying a dagger that has the power to REVERSE TIME. You're seriously going to nitpick the lead female for being too sassy?!

Sanspaper on Nov 2, 2009

57

this will be Disney's new cash cow after the pirates movies fizzle out and it'll end up with at least a trilogy. It's coincidentally also what The Mummy series aspired to but failed to achieve even with the first movie (entertaining and fun as it was). it'll end up with a 7.7/10 imdb rating or higher if the acting stands up properly. The vfx and score will surely be there, as is the directing and editing.

Buggy166 on Nov 2, 2009

58

seriously, is it some sort of a new FASHION trend to overly criticize every trailer and movie these days? it happened to ROTF (altho i agree it was terrible), is happening to the Avatar trailers and now this..

Raunak on Nov 2, 2009

59

Remember playing the game as a child up until the recent releases on the xbox 360. What turns me off is they have some blue-eyed white dude playing the main character with some blue-eyed white chick playing his love interest. Boring, boring and boring. Get a f'n grip movie industry there are plenty of better options out there for a cast. I will be DOWNLOADING it if that.

Cutty Sark on Nov 2, 2009

Well, it does look good, and it will probably make a hell of a lot of money, but I'm not entirely convinced...

Ajax on Nov 2, 2009

"National Pirates: Book of Mummies". Pass.

Film Fan on Nov 2, 2009

62

I'm surprised how good this looks. Damn.

Colin on Nov 2, 2009

63

#55, check out the cover to the game. He HAS blue eyes. I don't follow the fact that the lead HAS to be some unknown persian guy, but whatever, you already said you stopped following it recently. As far as the trailer, I think it looks decent. I'll probably see it in a theater just because it'll probably be ten times better than anything else. To each his own.

Luminaire on Nov 2, 2009

64

It looks good.. I love these types of movies. They always come out as they should, good family adventure fun. There are always laughs and action. They're silly, but well made and I think they are keystones for Hollywood. This may be a typical blockbuster film but I think it will be good fun like Pirates, National Treasure and the first two Mummy movies. it looks exactly as i would have imagined it to look and to me, that's perfectly fine.

Joey on Nov 2, 2009

65

Doesn't really seem to capture the essence of the game. Also, Gyllenhaal can act, but he is failing to do so in this trailer. This is about what I expected from the trailer, and its not enough for me.

Collin on Nov 2, 2009

66

maybe its just me but the trailer bored me to tears...imagine what the movie will do!!....seen it all before...The Mummy mixed with more than a touch of Pirates....does not make for a great film.

vegasdanny on Nov 2, 2009

67

Looks like a good movie will wait for it to come out.Thanks for the trailer man

joe on Nov 2, 2009

68

Wow just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, here comes this movie to remind me that the cinema truly is dead. All you fan boy assholes out there can eat me. Is it possible to have an original movie for once. Thats not a fucking video game, re-boot, comic book, or a fucking remake of some 1970's b movie that wasn't good in the first place. Forgive me for my bitterness and language, but I am so sick of this shit, I may just go drink a bottle of scotch.

Nicholas J on Nov 2, 2009

69

...my first dissapointment for me..you start making a movie without telling the beggining first. cos sands of time is more spectacular? sheesh. yes i will go to see this movie..to get a kick out of it, but it's far from the epic stuff it was meant to be. /sigh

Holy Moly on Nov 2, 2009

I am a bit surprised. I think this looks pretty good. 😀 I'd definitely go see it.

Sabes on Nov 2, 2009

looks perfect to me and i played every damn episode!!!

yojoe on Nov 2, 2009

wow #54...just wow. Are you blind? The female lead is a love interest, and Charlize Theron mannish? yeah your insane.

xerxex on Nov 2, 2009

73

Instantly reminded me of Pirate of The Caribbean 🙁 Looks like another mindless CGI piece of garbage. Too bad, a gritty, darker approach could have made this a very atmospheric and interesting movie.

dqniel on Nov 2, 2009

74

Looks great! To the naysayers who criticize it by comparing it to other movies: If you're going to be consistent, you'll need to reassure us that every single movie you have enjoyed is entirely innovative and beyond comparison to other movies made before. In other words, you can't have enjoyed a single movie which is neatly shelved in a genre section, unless it was the undoubted pioneer of that genre, without being a whiny hypocrite. Ugh.. as for the redundant complaints about Gyllenhaal not being Persian. Repost: In terms of the story of the game series upon which this is based, the Prince isn't necessarily Persian: "The Prince appears in the early Prince of Persia games as the protagonist and sole playable character. He is an adventurer from a foreign land who has never experienced royalty, but wins the heart of the Sultan's daughter on a trip to Persia." Note "from a foreign land".

Dark Fist on Nov 2, 2009

75

Oh, and since when was the Prince of Persia series supposed to be historically accurate in any sense? Just how realistic is it supposed to be? I wonder. Criticisms of this sort are hilariously simple-minded to me... Just how many movies are realistic enough not to insult these supposed purists of historical and scientific accuracy?

Dark Fist on Nov 2, 2009

76

Looks decent. A fun popcorn flick

JimD on Nov 2, 2009

77

Dark, I have to agree that most movies on our shelves are directly influenced by other films made before it. However can't we all agree that lately there have not been any films that come from material that has not been a comic book or a remake of something else? This film looks like another piece of CGI trash that we have seen a thousand times before. Nothing new or exciting. I have never commented on any web site ever before. But this trailer angers me because it's nothing we haven't seen before.

Nicholas J on Nov 2, 2009

78

They should make a Film about the Recent Prince of Persia..on 360 and PS3...and make the plot equal to when you collect all the light seed thingys...(1001 methinks??)(can't remember) the ending would be epic...I thought that was the best ending to a video game ever...

zeldaprimed on Nov 3, 2009

It's looks like good movie but story is not different I think ..any how stunts are good, Let us wait for release ..

It's like National Treasure, but older...and more popcorny. I'll see it, if not just to blow off class for an afternoon.

CGI Does not make a movie. Most people know this and so the bulk of people going will be adults taking their kids.

Fuck this movie

Nicholas J on Nov 3, 2009

83

@77/82 I agree. First of all, Disney, you go ahead and release this movie. But i swear to God, if you screw Warrior Within and Two Thrones because you won't make it "dark" enough. Ill rip walt disney's balls off. The corpse AND the company. I don't think they'll live up to an 18+ rated movie. Meh, we'll see. For now, what they did with Sands of Time is just a repeat of all the CGI crap they're always doing. Can't wait to see how they ruin the next Marvel movie 😀

Matt P on Nov 3, 2009

84

Wowww! Now that's freaking mind-blowing! It's very Pirates of the Carribean as usual, we all know why. Jake is looking absolutely yummy!! Sounding yummy too! Good job with the accent, sounds exactly like the one in the game! Although he could do without the senseless humour...gets kinda Brendan Fraser after a while...

mmm on Nov 3, 2009

85

meh looks like a maybe

Madnezz344 on Nov 3, 2009

86

I don't think that this looks bad at all. I think that it has a lot of promise and people are RATING IT BEFORE THEY EVEN SEE THE DAMN MOVIE!! There is always bound to be people hating on it for the sake of...well hating on it. I for one can't wait to see this. It's a movie ffs!! Some people are analyzing this as if its a f***ing discovery channel documentary. So what if their accents aren't exactly middle eastern. I'm pretty sure they wouldn't be speaking english all together and I'd rather watch an action movie without reading subtitles thank you.

TKaihea on Nov 3, 2009

87

yeah ill see it. and i agree with with #20 MK all the way

DoomCanoe on Nov 3, 2009

The trailer doesn't feel nearly as good as that PC game way back to me, I will pass on this one.

Bo on Nov 3, 2009

89

That looks like a great opportunity to pick something from my DVD collection instead. Honestly, that trailer looks like it was at least five years old. Cool pictures, yes. But a narrative that instantly puts you to sleep. Coffee anyone?

@#34 i think why people are have a go at the prince of persia trailer Alex is that it looks good, but like all movies that have been converted from a video game the movies seem to fall flat and don't have any resemblace to do with the video game take Tombraider and Tombraider 2. weather prince of persia will set a new trend i don't no but with Jerry Bruckheimer at the Helm i hope that prince of persia is more story oriantaited. p.s the CGI looks good.

Cineprog on Nov 3, 2009

easily digestible. i admit i know nothing about the game-but this movie looks like its for 5 year old kids. its disney guys so dont take the movie too seriously.

#77 "However can't we all agree that lately there have not been any films that come from material that has not been a comic book or a remake of something else?" No, we can't, because it is definitely not true. A few examples from 2009 alone: Inglourious Basterds, 9, Zombieland, District 9, The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus, Fanboys, even Avatar are not remakes or adaptions, and this list could be continued for a good while, especially if you include the years before 2009 in your "lately".

kevin on Nov 3, 2009

100

Gotta say the casting was one thing but the accents now being British takes the cake....weak. Won't be getting my 10 bucks in this day and age. There are plenty of actors with mainstream appeal who would have been more appropriate.

Pete on Nov 3, 2009

101

I like the 'Assassin's Creed' touch, but everything seems a little too much at the moment.

Robbie on Nov 3, 2009

102

Expect this to gross over $200 mill. This doesn't have to impress YOU, only kids from ages 6 to 16. Expect Hollywood to milk this franchise as much as possible.

Dave on Nov 3, 2009

103

well, i'll stick to my initial reaction when i heard about jake being cast as the lead... everything looks okay except jake. he just looks out of place! i'm not saying that they should cast some guy from the Middle East to play the lead, because it would be stupid to have a guy trying to speak with broken english... and i'm kinda from the Middle East... but at least be unique and generic about it! there are lots and lots of guys in hollywood who may actually look persian.... remember the guy with the face-tattoo from Mummy?? he was awesome.. but nope, they went with jake and made him even joke. i don't know, i may watch this when i'm overly bored or something. and also, what's up with the whole british accents?? i didn't know Persia had Brits in it... and yeah, even though it was rather horrid, Mortal Kombat will always be the best video game adaptation ever!

F.C. on Nov 3, 2009

#69 I agree 110%!!!!!!!!!

Tomi Lahdesmaki on Nov 3, 2009

105

well after reading numerous crying over actors and its not like the game and how its like the mummy and so on and so on get over it. This looks pretty good actually probably one of the first game adaptions i have seen in a good while. Its business children, pretty much everyone in hear will see it and will probably leave watching saying ehh not bad , not epic but not bad count my seat in.

splinter on Nov 3, 2009

106

What a bunch of crock.. The horses don't look CG like the horses in the videogame... I'm not going to see it now!

Truth on Nov 3, 2009

107

So.....according to Hollywood white male lead + white female lead= Prince of PERSIA? Okaaaaaay Anyway, looks as close to the videogame while still not breaking that elusive goal of being the first good VG adaptation. Gyllenhaal's hair looks god awful but his accent is spot on. Even the dry witty tone is right on the mark.....so...he's got that going for him.

krieg70 on Nov 3, 2009

108

people who talking about the accent is telling the truth its strange to hear Persians with a British accent. Leonardo DiCaprio and Matt Damon both starred in a movie that is set in Africa and they made an effort to put African accents. anyway Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time will have some typical characters i.e. the two leads are been played by white actors who saves the poor ethnic people, the token black guy who is some type of wise man or a warrior and Middle Eastern or people who look Middle Eastern will be the bad guys.

craig on Nov 3, 2009

109

The fx look great and mike Newell did a great job with goblet of fire...Jordan mechner being the sole creator of the prince of Persia franchise I'm glad he was so hands on with crafting this story, who can see it's pretty true to the nature o the game...looks like they threw elements of warrior within in there as well...great way to build a franchise...I'll definitely see this film, but I'd much rather watch something new and original being made than another videogame movie...hopefully this can be the first good one although I doubt it'll be anywhere near a classic...sure it'll be successful though. Rather watch moon or hurt locker again.

Linkfx on Nov 3, 2009

110

another masterpiece by the pirates team....frickin awesome!!!! BTW its still a teaser and the movie is still months away frm releasing....even avatar teaser got many negative comments....im sure it'll change when they'll release an international trailer!!!!!

Hellboy on Nov 3, 2009

111

ok, first impression is. It's kinda like the first mummy, cheap fake accents, eh very similar to evee and rick o connel. ugh. pretty much a replicate of the mummy. The magi kinda resemble the sand ppl or w/e. eg the bad guys.

Vincent Cipollone on Nov 3, 2009

112

@110...Good call, I know a lot of people doubted Pirates before it came out. This could be a lot of fun. And just because it takes place in the desert, doesn't mean people HAVE to compare it to The Mummy. Also G.I Joe looked like absolute crap but was incredibly fun, so let's see what happens with this...for now, I'm quasi-interested!

Marc on Nov 3, 2009

113

@ 77, Nicholas J: I understand your frustration, but it's absurd to take it out on this single movie. On what basis can anyone say this movie is supposed to be innovative? It's an adaptation of a video game, and that's all we should expect. It's not supposed to be groundbreaking. If adaptations make you angry, don't watch trailers for adaptations. Same goes for CGI, it's easy to tell which movies are going to use CGI without paying much attention to them. I'm sure there are plenty of other upcoming movies more fitting to your tastes, and if not, make one yourself or stop watching new movies. It's as simple as that. But if you really feel outraged about unoriginality and CGI-overuse, write an essay about it. I'm sure it would be far more effective and anger-relieving than bashing Prince of Persia.

Why people do not learn a lesson ? I mean you just saw a teaser trailer and again all what you had to say is Jake Gyllenhaal and Mummy !!!!! Remember Heath Ledger when they announced he will play the role of Joker !!! What you forgot !? Remember not every thing about the words Persia ... sand ... Iraq ... Iran ... Arab ... means Mummies !!! I can understand people making mistake ...but I can't understand why they keep making the same mistake again and again !!! ? and once more ... Do not try to mix how the game was and how the movie looks !!! ... even if you make a movie based exactly as the game ...it will still be difference from it .... I don't remember a movie that look like the game !!! Do you ? please let me know ! ( Sorry ... I didn't read all the comments ... But I am sure there are some who are agree with what I think .. Respect )

There needs to be blood, PG:13 doesn't cut it for video game movies. Ex. Max Payne, which was shitty.

Now, I think this trailer is awesome. And if this is a true portrait of how the movie will be, I can't wait! But the only thing that I found odd is that Gyllenhal is speaking with a british accent... what's the point of that?

I'm a huge fan of the franchise, maybe less of the PS 3 part 'cause it was toooo mainstream but cool look otherwise. And yes disney got it pretty well. Gyllenhall ist good in shape. And I want SAND, SOWRDS and MYSTICS. Pretty creative stuff and I think not final touched in color 😉

#115 you are wrong, i agree FFVII: Advent Children is great but its done by the same people who created it. video game adaption is only based on other film studios doing the movie.

darkside on Nov 3, 2009

123

Yes. That's right but FF AC is CGI 100%. Thats it. And SquareEnix did a god job. But that's not 100% CGI an 4 that, it's great.

#115 I would say Advent Children is more of a sequel, it was set 2 years after the end of the game.

#124 yeah i agree Advent Children is a sequel

Great Movie, on my must see 2010 movies list.I LOVED this trailer and i seriously cant wait for this movie to be released.

Looks alright, you put Brandon Fraser in it and it looks like another Mummy Movie.

That looked like one of the coolest movies in the past 10 years, IF it wasn't for the casting. I was pretty surprised to see Scott Stapp cast as the prince.

Anybody else notice how much of that trailer was the princess talking. Like if you took all the lines in the trailer, Jake Gyllenhal had like 5%, other characters had 5% and then the chick had 90%. She just didn't shut up. Even Jake Gyllenhal is like "You like giving me orders don't you?" Clearly she does!!!

Hi, The new released trailer is deifnitely to be liked by many. There has been a pc game but this movie is certainly going to be one of the most awaited film of the year 2010. Thanks for updating about The Prince Of Persia.

Since i'm #133 noone will probably even read this comment, but i'll write it anyway. I like Jake, and i like jerry so it'll prolly be good. 2 more things: 1) thank god it's not in 3 frickin' D! and 2) Americans doing the british accent gets on my nerves if i already know they are americans!

@ 133 Somehow I missed this trailer and just now saw it came out. So I read your comment!

Why does every civilization on film have a British accent? It's really f'n annoying...

pyromunky on Nov 5, 2009

Seeing this trailer here now for Prince of Persia: Sands of Time pretty much tells me right now that we will not see a trailer for Pirates of the Caribean: On Stranger Tides until January 2011, which would be it teaser trailer and then a full theatrical official trailer for it will be out by may 2011, because then two months later on July 8th, 2011 Friday is when it finally arrives to movie theaters!!!!.

Hummmmmm....could this the film based on a video game that will bring salvation to fanboys world wide and remain loyal to source material...The last to do that was Mortal Kombat 1996...Hummmmm...I'm thoroughly impressed...

JAKE GAVE GEMMA SOOOOOOOOO MUCH SHIT ON THIS FILM. Although it'll never be said in public but his behaviour was that of a spoiled insecure arrogant shit, good luck Duncan Jones.

This looks pretty awesome, I must say, even despite all the concerns about Gyllenhaal playing the lead, it looks great.
