“Prince of Persia” trailer looks good

I don’t play video games like “Prince of Persia” so I have no game-based hopes and expectations for this Jerry Bruckheimer movie. We’ve had a few discussions about it in the SF-Fandom forums and my interest is definitely piqued.

Jake Gyllenhaal looks like he’s ready for action. In this video, ET talks with him and he says that despite seeming to have bulked up he has only put on five pounds of muscle. Maybe he’s just playing with the audience.

Gemma Aterton plays Tamina. James Bond fans know her as Strawberry Fields in “Quantum of Solace”.

Ben Kingsley and Alfred Molina lend their considerable talents to the production as well.

Mike Newell, who directed “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire” is directing this movie (and how did he find time to do “The Elfstones of Shanarra”?).

The film is scheduled for release over Memorial Day Weekend in 2010. Yes, folks, we have to wait another 15 months for it. Sorry.
