The first official image of Jake Gyllenhaal as Prince Dastan in Producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s “Prince of Persia: Sands of Time” has been released courtesy of Entertainment Weekly. Above you can see part of the image, and after the jump is the full version – along with why we’re getting so many new images from tons of big movies this week:
The reason we’ve been overrun with new images is Comic-Con. Starting next Wednesday night and through Sunday, the studios and networks are going to do everything and anything to get people’s attention. After all, the 100,000 people that attend Comic-Con are the most die-hard and usually the most vocal fans. If you impress the audience at Comic-Con, you’ve got a rabid and passionate base to spread the gospel about your film or TV show.
The only problem this year is most of the big movie related panels are Thursday. The only reason for that is the studios are trying to be part of the Friday news cycle, which is causing a clusterfuck for all the fans and journalists that want to cover everything.
So what does that mean for all of you not able to go to San Diego next week? You’re going to want to pay attention to all your favorite websites on Thursday afternoon and Friday, as that’s the time a lot of news will be breaking.
I’ll be there – along with a lot of our regular contributors – so get ready for a lot of Comic-Con news next week. Until then, enjoy this image of Jake Gyllenhaal.
