Two Stylish Posters for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
Last week the first official photo from Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time was finally unveiled. This week we finally have the first two posters from the movie as well (via Empire). These look a bit more like magazine covers than posters, but maybe that's the look they're going for. I think Disney really wants to try and sell this as a modernized, energetic action movie. And you know what, considering this is the one time I think a video game movie could turn out great and be a huge hit, I'm fine with them doing whatever they need to get audiences into theaters next summer. Oh yea, let's not forget, this isn't out for another year.
Based on the very popular series of videogames, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time stars Jake Gyllenhaal as the 'rogue prince' Dastan and Gemma Arterton as the 'mysterious princess' Tamina (both seen above), who reluctantly team up to safeguard an ancient dagger that could release the Sands of Time, allowing its possessor to reverse time and rule the world. Mike Newell, of Donnie Brasco, Pushing Tin, Mona Lisa Smile, and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire previously, is directing the movie. Jordan Mechner, one of the creators of the video game, has been working closely on the script and development of this as well.
