Final Poster for Disney's Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
Along with the premiere of the final trailer last week, Disney has also debuted what looks to be the final official poster for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time over on UGO today. Last July we got to see the first two magazine-like posters for Prince of Persia, which seemed a bit too stylish for the general public to appreciate. But now they've released a typical action-movie poster with cheesier poses from the main actors. To be honest, it's not that impressive of a poster, it's just kind of bland and boring. Oh and in related news, Prince of Persia will also be showing in IMAX worldwide this summer (via Collider). Check it out below!
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 this summer. Will you be seeing it?

Whats with the type font they use for the tittle in these posters, it does not scream out Prince of Persia at all. This just gives me another reason to not go see what would most likely be a terrible movie.

I think it is a good poster. Font issues are ridiculously overblown... It sure ruined Avatar, didn't it? 🙂

I like the title treatment, it's makes you differeniate this film from the videogames, contemporaizes it...looking forward to what will hopefully be beautiful mindless entertainment in the true spirit of the game...at least it looks like the game...and Gyllenhaal seems to be embracing the prickishness of the protag.

Aw, c'mon Disney, surely you afford some more convincing Photoshop than that... *facepalm*

Only in America will we try to pass of yet another white guy off as ethnic. Sure Jake's Persian, just like Tom Cruise is the Last Samurai

Ugh once again....The prince of persia in the games was NOT PERSIAN, He was a stranger from faraway lands that arrived there. I also dont think youve even seen The Last Samurai because if you had then youd realize how retarded your comment is.

#8 whatever you were on while u watched The Last Samurai, its got you fooled. I've seen the trailers for the movie and i think that Jake pulls it off. Do you think that they also had a Persian providing the voice-overs in the games too? Sit down and shut up.

What annoys me is that people who try to call out the racism are the true racists by ignorantly insinuating that Persians (modern day Iranians) should look something like Indian when in fact the majority of Iranian, Turkish, Asia Minor, and general Middle Eastern people are caucasian. Jake Gylenhaal is no more "white" than Iranian theatre star Ramin Karimloo, currently on stage playing the Phantom in Lloyd Webber's sequel to the musical: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramin_Karimloo

No thought whatsoever put into that font choice. Lazy.

Firstly, to comment on what #9 said: Yes, the prince in the game was Persian. He was a Persian prince passing through India. Secondly, they obviously were not going to cast a Persian person, they want someone famous.

"Only in America will we try to pass of yet another white guy off as ethnic" Your an idiot! They still do black face in Europe! America is the least racist of them all.
