While we still don’t have a trailer for Disney’s “Prince of Persia” movie, thanks to the magic of YouTube, and producer Jerry Bruckheimer doing an interview on TV, we have our first look at some footage from the movie.
Of course it isn’t much, but you do get to see Jake Gyllenhaal in action, and the amount of extras in some of the shots are quite impressive. While I don’t know the exact budget, I do know Disney spent some serious money on this film, as they’re clearly hoping to turn this into the next “Pirates” franchise.
With Disney releaseing a few big movies this summer like “Up” and “G-Force”, I’d imagine we’ll get our first real trailer quite soon.
“The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” gets released on May 28th, 2010. And here’s the synopsis from IMDB:
Set in medieval Persia, the story of an adventurous prince who teams up with a rival princess to stop an angry ruler from unleashing a sandstorm that could destroy the world. Which is why after the prince was tricked by a dying Vizier to unleash the Sands of Time that turns out to destroy a kingdom and transforms its populace into ferocious demons. In his effort to save his own kingdom and redeem his fatal mistake, it’s up to the prince and the princess to return the sands to the hourglass by using the Dagger of Time, which also gives him a limited control over the flow of time.
Thanks to Slashfilm for the heads up on this story.
