Now I know that compter game movie adaptations have not had the best time at the box office in recent years but I must admit that Prince of Persia looks like it could buck that trend.
Yes I must admit that I’m quite looking forward to it, and no it has got nothing to do with a rather buff looking Jake Gyllenhaal!
Mike Newell is behind the camera and Gyllenhaal joins forces with Gemma Arterton, Ben Kingsley, Alfred Molina and Toby Kebbell.
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.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is released 28th May. Take a look at the images from the movie:
