prince of persia trailer Second Prince of Persia Trailer is More Epic

The first official full length trailer for Disney’s adaptation of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time released back in November and highlighted the special effects driven scenery and action that moviegoers will witness in the summer blockbuster.

IGN has just released the second Prince of Persia trailer today and it’s quite a bit better than the first. Featuring more story elements and a little bit more “epic” if you’re a fans of the Pirates of the Caribbean and The Mummy type epics and Jerry Bruckheimer’s trademark style, then you should definitely watch this.

The trailer doesn’t reveal too much new overall but it does feature more story elements through Gemma Arterton’s exposition/narration intertwined with quick action shots. We also get to see a bit more of the use of the dagger to slow and reverse time which I hope is used for some cool action sequences.

Prince of Persia stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton (Quantum of Solace & the upcoming Clash of the Titans), Alfred Molina (Spider-Man 2 & the upcoming The Sorcerer’s Apprentice) and Ben Kingsley (The Assignment, Shutter Island).

If you’re a fan of the game for which the movie is based on and/or are interested in checking it out, game developer Ubisoft is releasing Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands just prior to the release of this movie. It is a sequel to The Sands of Time series featuring the Gyllenhaal version of the prince from the movie. Check it out at our sister site, Game Rant.

I’m a big fan of the game and from what I’ve see so far from the trailers and features, there’s not enough cool sword fighting and parkour (i.e. what made the game a success). Hopefully more will come.

Does this trailer gain your interest?

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is directed by Mike Newell and opens in theaters May 28, 2010.

  1. Will this be the first Video Game adaptation to not suck? Doubtful. It looks okay, but the dialogue feels stilted and the story-line sees fairly unoriginal (but wait, didn't the game have a very similar storyline? Yes, yes it did, and I didn't think that was very original either but I didn't play it and love it for the storyline).

    If anything saves this, it'll be the action scenes (even though, from the trailers, even they look pretty run of the mill, but who knows). And like you say Rob, if they have the parkour and sword play down, they'll have me sold.

  2. Mmmmm Gemma Arterton

  3. The fact that it looks so “epic” kinda turns me off. The game mostly took place in the same building. It seems kind of arbitrary to expand the environments and make everything generally “bigger”. Why is it that Hollywood fails to recognize the value of smaller, more understated….well, everything.

  4. Better trailer. I'm getting excited about seeing how this turns out. Sure my expectations are not that high, just like most of the people, but I did see glimpses of some pretty cool stuff in the trailer (like freerunning, and him jumping from wall to wall).

  5. Saw this trailer with Old Dogs. Rented it early.

  6. boss fights :D

  7. for a movie like this its a smart move to have some of the action and story take place outside. It would be a boring movie just to see the prince run and unlock doors for two hours .

  8. I see white people everywhere. and I'm tired of it.
