[Update: We've added a new featurette about the deadly Hassansins!]
Over the last few months we’ve been seeing various behind-the-scenes featurettes pop up for the upcoming video game adaptation, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. The first one focused on the main character of Prince Dastan, the second focused on the titular Sands of Time and why everyone covets them, and the third focused more on the epic nature of the film.
To add to those first three featurettes we have a new one which focuses more on the story, particularly explaining just what the heck the Sands of Time are (not everyone has played the games, remember). It also quickly covers how/why the main character is able to jump around on walls and between buildings.
But before we get to the video, here’s the official synopsis for Prince of Persia:
A rogue prince (Jake Gyllenhaal) reluctantly joins forces with a mysterious princess (Gemma Arterton) and together they race against dark forces to safeguard an ancient dagger capable of releasing the Sands of Time—a gift from the gods that can reverse time and allow its possessor to rule the world.

They’re really doing a great job with these little featurettes for Prince of Persia. Of course, with a movie this size they can obviously afford the best advertising – but I can’t help but get more and more excited every time I see something new for the movie. Is it just me?
Update: Here’s a new featurette about those loveable assassins the Hassansins, who actually look like they’re a cool part of this movie. Check it out:
Prince of Persia stars Jake Gyllenhaal as Prince Dastan who discovers the dagger. Co-starring is Gemma Arterton (as Princess Tamina, the Prince’s companion), Ben Kingsley (as Nizam, the antagonist of the film that wants the dagger to take over the world) and Alfred Molina (as Sheik Amar).
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time was directed by Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) and watched over by mega-producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean). It hits theaters on May 28th, 2010.
