Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time only caught a passing interest from me. Movies based on games tend to be a hit and miss venture. Add that to Disneys involvement and this project had caution written all over it, that is until I watched the trailer above.
I'm now excited about Prince of Persia. The effects looks good. I like the use of a broader variety of weaponry especially the more exocitic ones. The trailer does a nice job of setting up the back and forth between Dastan and Princess Tamina, even if a bit cliche.
Prince of Persia hits the theaters on May 28, 2010.
Pilot / Story: Based on the game Prince Of Persia. Dastan is a street urchin in 6th century Persia. Adopted by the king as his heir after showing valor in battle in hopes of keeping the king's two sons from fighting over the throne. Dastan teams up with Princess Tamina to rescue the Sands of Time, a gift from the gods that controls time, from the hands of the villainous nobleman, Nizam.
