UK Trailer for PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME Starring Not-Persian Jake Gyllenhaal – UPDATED

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:
