VIDEO: Prince Of Persia Footage...

So, one of the benefits of being out of school, is that I get to watch a lot more television in between moving and family gatherings. One thing I got a chance to see this Mother's Day Weekend was a special on ABC regarding upcoming Disney projects. Along with the first full trailer for the Princess and The Frog (I will get to that in another post), was the first footage from both the set and the actual film, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. It looks pretty cool, but I still can't get over how horrible of a casting job they did with the main character. I am a Jake Gyllenhaal fan, but he's just not right for the role. Who knows, he could be great, but this footage doesn't really do anything for my anticipation for this film.

Based on the popular action adventure video game, Prince of Persia tells 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. Dastan (Jake Gyllenhaal) must join forces with Tamina (Gemma Arterton), a feisty and exotic princess, to prevent a villainous nobleman from possessing the Sands of Time, a gift from the gods that can reverse time. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire helmer Mike Newell is directing, and Alfed Molina.

Go see something good!
