I’m going to set aside my bitterness over the non-Persian Prince of Persia and my unwavering skepticism in video game movies to say that this new featurette for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time makes the flick look pretty darn fun. I wouldn’t rank it high on my most anticipated of 2010 list, but Jake Gyllenhaal, who plays the titular Prince, “Dastan”, looks like he’s having a good time, the action appears well-choreographed, and as long as the story isn’t completely rotten (and they have a good reason for why the non-Persian Gyllenhaal is playing the title character) this may turn out to be an enjoyable summer blockbuster.
Hit the jump to check out the featurette which focuses on the character of Dastan but also does a better job of selling the movie than the trailers. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time hits theaters on May 28, 2010.
