Finally it’s here.  After months of anticipation, Disney has finally released a trailer for their upcoming film Prince of Persia, and it seems just as exciting and thrilling as the video game.   We all know that video games turned into film have rarely, if ever, been very good, but with these high profile names floating around, it’s hard to believe that this game will fail much like its brethren.

With the leading role played by Jake Gyllenhaal, a stage presence by Ben Kingsley, a Jerry Bruckheimer production and backed by Disney, it’s shaping up to be the first great video game film made.  Let’s hope it lives up to its hype.

The premise is simple. Set in medevial Persia, a prince and a princess team up to stop a ruler from unleashing a deadly sandstorm that could potentially destroy the world.  Tricked into releasing the Sands of Time, the prince takes it upon himself to restore the hourglass to prevent the angry ruler from going through with his masterful plan.

The only way the prince can restore the Sands of Time is by using the Dagger of Time, which grants him control over time to an extent.  While there are many details left to be unearthed, let’s hope this film is the right step in the film direction.

Prince of Persia: Sands of Time will hit theaters May 28, 2010.

  1. It’s Pirates of Persia basically. I reckon it will be about as good as the Pirates of the Carribean

  2. This is on my list of “Hurry the F*&k up and film it already. The others are:
    -WoW the movie
    -Ender’s Game the movie
    -Alien vs. Predator 3 (suppose to be in space/future this time like the games)

    It certainly looks better than X Men Origins: Wolverine

  4. As much as I hate Jerry Bruckheimer, this film is pretty much perfect for him. And thank god for the lack of American accents!

  5. Eh, I wouldn’t pay to see this

  6. Until I saw this trailer I wasn’t excited about this movie, but that has all changed now!

    It’s very true! I’m far from being anywhere near a “ruby”, but God has done so much for me all these years of being sgilne. He still is…hopefully, I’ll make a good wife when the day comes!
