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.
