We’ve had a few looks at the upcoming Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time video game adaptation over the last year or so. The first images were unofficial with the first official one getting released a couple of weeks ago which showed Jake Gyllenhaal as Prince Dastan.
Not long after that came a couple of new posters for the movie, one again featuring Gyllenhaal (which isn’t surprising since he’s the lead and one of the main draws for the film) and the other featuring Gemma Arterton as the female lead. Then came Ben Kingsley’s poster as Nizam.
The images so far have been mostly reassuring that the movie will be somewhat decent…
Today we get another slick look at Prince of Persia courtesy of Empire (who have nabbed the exclusive), continuing that kind of style of the first posters (which looked more like fashion magazine covers than movie posters).
A couple of the images appear to be mid-scene, where our Prince and Princess Tamina (an alluring Gemma Arterton) look to have been at first soaked from head to toe, and then attempting to escape on horseback. The other two are behind-the-scenes, showing director Mike Newell, and producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Check out one of the images below:
For the full size version, plus the rest of the exclusive images, you can head over head over to Empire.
With regards to the two mid-scene images, it seems like strange ones to promote Prince of Persia. Not that they don’t look cool and all (something about water as a still image is weirdly nice to look at), but you’d think the promotion stills would be more… staged.
It’s a nice change, though…
What do you make of these latest Prince of Persia images? Are you looking forward to this video game adaptation?
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton, Ben Kingsley, Alfred Molina and Toby Kebbell. It is slated for a May 28th, 2010 release.
