The UK trailer for “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” just landed online and I know it’s the UK trailer because it says “In Cinemas 27 May 2010″ and here in America we know that “cinemas” are supposed to be called “theaters” and that only weak, non-American countries would put the date before the month.  Stupid countries that aren’t us.  However, the UK is slightly better since this trailer aired on British television last night.  Someone took the trailer that had legally aired in the UK and then uploaded it online.  If Disney asks us to take it down, we will do so.  Also, the US trailer will go online later tonight and when it does we will be sure to update this story.

As for the trailer, it’s a special effects extravaganza mixed with forced, awkward flirting between Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton, Arterton’s GPS-like narration, and really cool looking action.  Now if only there was a way to computer-generate a Persian ethnicity, they’d be all set.  I genuinely want to know if they address how Gyllenhaal’s character is the “Prince of Persia” if he looks in no way Persian.  But that doesn’t mean this won’t be a fun movie even if you can’t buy Gyllenhaal’s colonial-British accent.  Check out the UK trailer after the jump.

Update: The domestic trailer has been released. Watch both after the jump:

Here’s the domestic trailer:

    Jojo: I did cause the economic meltdown and I’m sorry for that. Not America, just me. Don’t think less of my country.

    nelson: I love the game and if there’s one thing I like about the trailer is that they’ve tried to translate the acrobatics and fluid action into the movie. He does look like The Prince but that doesn’t make him Persian.

    • !_!

      so what did persian look like back then?

    Kinda has a Mummy feel to it although the special effects look really good. The chick is hot. I wish Sam Raimi could dump Tobey McGuire and cast Jake Gyllenhall to play Spiderman. He would do such a better job than Tobey.

    Wow, looks like they went all out for extra features to be placed in this dvd. You know what that means right? It means one would have to pay more cookies and milk to acquire this DVD.

    Hey Matt, what the hell is wrong with you? what does putting the day before the month has to do with the strength of a country? BTW “your” country name is not “America” is United States of America. America is a continent you dumb a$$.

    Not sure Matt if your comments on ‘stupid countries that aren’t us’ was supposed to a sarcastic joke or if you were being serious. I hope it wasnt the latter as that would reenforce the many stereotypes of dumb narrow-minded yanks. Now Im not saying that one size fits all but get a grip you idiot your just inviting people to bash your stupid articles…

    Iran has people of many looks – white, olive complexion, Asian, blue eyes, brown hair, blond hair, etc. Although, majority of people have olive complexions, brown eyes, and dark hair, that does not mean people like Jake J. do not exist in Iran.
    I wonder where was all the complaining when the movie 300 had African actors and digitally darkened individuals playing the Persians. Please note that people in Greece and Iran have (for the most part) the same features. So, when the Greeks and Spartan actors all look Swedish and the Persians, African, it kind of looks as though people in the 'west' are majorly misinformed and probably confused. Shame on Hollywood for the mis-education and misrepresentation.
